Overview

Among Charles de Lint's most beloved creations is the northern city of Newford, a place touched by deep magic—and the setting for novels like The Onion Girl and story collections like Dreams Underfoot. Now, with the Orb publication of The Ivory and the Horn, all four of the Newford story collections are returned to print. Here, on the streets of Newford, is the magic that hovers at the edge of everyday life.

Charles de Lint began his chronicle of the city of Newford in Memory & Dream. In Ivory and the Horn, this uncommonly gifted craftsman weaves a new tapestry of stark realism and fond hope, mean streets and boulevards of dreams, where readers discover the power of love and longing, wishes and desires, and the magic that hovers at the edge of everyday life.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Charles de Lint is the modern master of urban fantasy. Folktale, myth, fairy tale, dreams, urban legend--all of it adds up to pure magic in de Lint's vivid, original world. No one does it better." --Alice Hoffman on Charles de Lint

"In de Lint's capable hands, modern fantasy becomes something other than escapism. It becomes folk song, the stuff of urban myth." --The Phoenix Gazette on Charles de Lint

    Great anthology

    These fifteen Newford tales are a fun interrelated collection as the characters find solace from the everyday pain of living, but every action leads to a related reaction. For instance Jilly¿s artist pal Sophie enters 'Mr. Truepenny's Book Emporium and Gallery' as a child only to find herself years later isolated in a Native American dream world in 'Where Desert Spirits Crowd the Night' while her parents first meet 'In Dream Harder¿. Thus the audience obtains deep fantasy tales that contain characters in several entries, which in turn leads to even more profound sagas. Although all except for 'Bird Bones and Wood Ash' have been printed in other publications, fans of the series will enjoy reading them in one anthology that makes for easy mix and match as Newford character linkage between sets of stories showcases Charles de Lint¿s abilities to intelligently entertain his fans.----- Harriet Klausner
