A Long Day in Lychford by Paul Cornell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Although I don't think this is as strong an entry in this series of fantasy novellas, Lychford hasn't yet run out of steam. The three witches that Cornell has written into existence are as strong as any witchy triad from literary history: welcome additions to the likes of Lloyd Alexander's Prydain trio (see: The Black Cauldron), Terry Pratchett's Wyrd Sisters and, of course, Macbeth. The pacing is pure television show, but that certainly doesn't detract from the rollicking good fun here. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book in the series!
