This seventeen-story collection takes Charles de Lint fans back to their favorite urban center Newford where magic is a way of life. Sixteen of the stories have been released in other publications, but not in one book. One tale is brand new. Each story contains an assortment of seeming losers obtaining a new lease on life either by the help of a kindhearted magical being or overcoming a malevolent essence. The stories are well written fantasies, but intended for the Newford crowd. Any other reader should try one of Charles de Lint¿s novels such as THE ONION GIRL first. Harriet Klausner

For those of you new to or who already know and love Urban Fantasy (mixing classic mythological characters from many traditions placed in modern urban settings) this book is a great introduction to the world the Charles de Lint has created. He mixes not only old myths but modern issues - strain and rewards of family, socioeconomics, child abuse - into the mythical worlds of Gaelic, European and Native American mythology. It is lighter reading than say "American Gods" but no less satisfying.

This was a wonderful re-introduction to old friends and start new ones. I have read Mr. De Lint's books in the past but had forgotten just how good he is, even in his short stories his characters have life and are fully intriguing.
