KIRKUS REVIEW

They don't make lines like ""There's something in the woods, got no right to be there,"" nowadays, but given Pangborn's practiced narrative agility and his following of two decades, a few such touchstone doom-bells are an asset for a more traditional science fiction market. The stories deal mainly with portentous beasts or enchanted semblances -- menacing or beneficent: an outer space ""turtle""; a swarm of blue bugs dealing in death or life-giving dreams; a pixilated cat/man; a flight of wrens. There's also a galactic morality story about a visiting angel. Twilight tales for settled neighborhoods.
