I Got His Blood on Me - Lawrence Patchett Intriguing mix of well-written short stories, many of which play around with aspects of New Zealand history. Some are longer than an average short story, e.g. 30-50 pages. Highlights for me were:- The title story, with a Pakeha-Maori mysteriously turning up injured in the present day and developing a friendship of sorts with the man who rescues him.- My Brother's Blood about two brothers separated for years and the clash when they meet again; one is a sealer and the other in a religious order.- The Snack Machine set in the present and about the relationship between a man and his young step-son.
