More praise for C. E. Murphy's Baba Yaga's Daughter, from Green Man Review:
Stylistically, Murphy experiments from tale to tale. “Chicago Bang Bang” is noir pastiche, while “Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight” is deliberately arch in tone and construction. Anastasia’s stories – “From Russia, With Love” and “Baba Yaga’s Daughter” – are largely stream of consciousness, driven by image and description instead of action. And Vanessa’s stories – “Five Card Draw” and “Last Hand” are more straightforward, understated and explicative. The constant change-up in style and technique keeps the collection fresh and the reading experience from getting repetitive.
