Medicine Road (Newford, #14)Medicine Road by Charles de Lint. Solid contemporary fantasy about the fiddle-playing twins from Seven Wild Sisters on tour in Arizona, where they meet some interesting and unusual people…

Linkity wiped out by lidocaine

Why do I always forget that lidocaine injections leave me feeling spacey and exhausted a few hours later?! Ugh. I had four “suspicious looking” moles removed earlier today and I am fading fast now… (I’ll find out in about a week if they were more than suspicious looking.) *yawning*

There won’t be any linkity at all next week, as I’ll be in Cleveland for work most of the week…

Reading Update
Muse and ReverieMuse and Reverie by Charles de Lint. Another solid collection of Newford short stories, set before Widdershins.
The Blue Girl (Newford, #15)The Blue Girl by Charles de Lint. I’m not a big YA fan, even for a Newford book. It wasn’t a bad book! And I did enjoy the tiny cameos and mentions of a few of the established Newford folks.

Reading Update
Tapping the Dream Tree by Charles de Lint. Another good collection of short stories set in Newford and the hills nearby.
Spirits in the Wires by Charles de Lint. This isn’t one of my favorite Newford books – it doesn’t have quite the zing of some of the other books and some of the overly specific technology bits have not aged well.
Widdershins by Charles de Lint. I don’t think I realized the first time I read this book that, because of how all the ends are tied up, this was probably the final big Newford book.

Linkity desperately needs this long holiday weekend

Work continues to be crazy. I am so behind on blogs and GoodReads and life in general. Hi! :waving:

Reading Update
Moonlight and Vines by Charles de Lint. Upon rereading, I liked this third collection of Newford stories more than the second (The Ivory and the Horn).
Forests of the Heart by Charles de Lint. This Newford book was a solid read, but not one of my favorites.
The Onion Girl by Charles de Lint. Not my favorite Newford book – it’s a hard read. I really wanted some magical healing, dammit.

Check out that proto-thumb dewclaw there, eh? He doesn’t have extra toes or anything – just large and weirdly dexterous dewclaws. I don’t think May can even move her dewclaws, besides flexing the actual claw…

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. 🙂
