Belong scores a recommendation in The West Australian:

This collection of science fiction stories explores what it means to belong, an appropriate theme so close to Australia Day. For many of us not born in Australia these stories strike close chords to how we feel. The stories are challenging and fascinating, interesting and compelling, alien and familiar. My favourite was Carol Ryles' "Deeper than Flesh and Closer"; I hope to see the story expanded into a series about the Glyr who live in such close communion with the Rhizome. Similarly fascinating were the characters in "Song of the Blackbird" by Sarah Totton, a familiar story about the challenges of what is written and what comes to be. For laughs though, Angela Rega's "Slow Cookin'" is entertaining and intriguing.
