Red Spikes is on the Horn Book Fanfare!

"Chosen annually by our editors, Fanfare is The Horn Book Magazine’s selection of the best children’s and young adult books of the year." And they say of Red Spikes:
Ten short stories from an award-winning fantasy writer delve into the crevices of nightmare, temptation, and helplessness with a mixture of earthy dialect and inventiveness that makes this collection mesmerizing, sometimes horrifying, and occasionally funny. Lanagan’s powerfully visceral speculative fiction is written in penetrating language and with the intensity of folktale.
And of course, Shaun Tan's The Arrival is on the list too.
