Moonlight & Vines
Familiar to Charles de Lint's ever-growing audience as the setting of the novels Memory & Dream, Trader, and Someplace To Be Flying, Newford is the quintessential North American city, tough and streetwise on the surface and rich with hidden magic for those who can see.
Now de Lint returns to this extraordinary city for a third volume of short stories set there, including several never before published in book form. Here is enchantment under a streetlamp: the landscape of urban North America as only Charles de Lint can show it. "Blending Lovecraft's imagery, Dunsany's poetry, Carroll's surrealism, and Alice Hoffman's small-town strangeness," wrote Interzone on Dreams Underfoot, de Lint's Newford tales are "a haunting mixture of human warmth and cold inevitability, of lessons learned and prices to be paid."
At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

A series of short stories set in Newford - de Lint's fictional town that seems to be in Canada. I enjoyed most of them. None were bad - but some were quite good. I like his writing quite bit. I always forget how much until I read something of his. Have to do more. Read full review

Stopped on page 212 of 461. Stories were just too much alike and too unreal, soap-opera-y. Some had kernels of truth to ponder, but the format was too slow, mechanical, or 80's-ish for me to keep going. Read full review
