The Ivory and the Horn by Charles de Lint. This is the second book of Newford short stories from de Lint. They’re good, but not quite as consistently so as Dreams Underfoot, alas. I’ll still leave my original rating, though. 🙂
Trader by Charles de Lint. Body swapping, Newford style. I found myself wondering if maybe I would give it four instead of five stars upon rereading, but… I couldn’t put it down and stayed up too late, so…
Someplace To Be Flying by Charles de Lint. Crow Girls! Really, that’s it. They make the book for me. 🙂
