Red Spikes - Margo Lanagan

And thusly begins my love affair with Margo Lanagan's short stories. It took a few to warm up but by the time I got to A Feather in the Breast of God I was hooked. What is there to not like about a story that is narrated by a budgerigar?The only reason I didn't give this 3 1/2 stars is because I can't work the hell out how to give a half a star.
