Tapping the Dream Tree

Tapping the Dream Tree (2002) Charles de Lint I’ve been somewhat depressed recently, and since I got an Amazon book credit, I realized I could get some of my Charles de Lint books as eBooks. WIN.

Muse and Reverie

Muse and Reverie (2009) Charles de Lint I love Charles de Lint’s writing. Adore it. He writes of the magic that is hidden just beyond the perception of most of us, and of the power to heal, and he writes some of the strongest female characters of almost any author I know. But don’t make […]

Companions to the Moon

Companions to the Moon (2007) Charles de Lint This is a short story that’s not connected to Newford–just the story of a woman who thinks her boyfriend is cheating on her, and what she discovers. Of course, this is Charles de Lint, so you never expect what she discovers. Charles de Lint never fails to […]

The Very Best of Charles de Lint

The Very Best of Charles de Lint (2010) Charles de Lint I love Charles de Lint. I believe I have all of his mass published story anthologies, and several of the smaller press novellas, so I’d read most of the stories in this collection. Doesn’t matter. I can read his stories time and again, and […]

Muse and Reverie

Muse and Reverie (2009) Charles de Lint The last Newford short story collection was in 2002, so it was quite a wait for this fifth collection. In the interim of course, he has had stories in a variety of anthologies, many of which I have, some of which I picked up solely because he had […]

Promises to Keep

Promises to Keep (2007) Charles de Lint Charles de Lint said he wasn’t going to write about Jilly any longer–he’d already done plenty to her in The Onion Girl, and resolved things for her in Widdershins, but in Promises to Keep we get to go back to Jilly’s past. Not the terrible past, but the […]

Widdershins (2006) Charles de Lint Widdershins is the latest book by Charles de Lint, and I debated for about a month as to whether I wanted to buy it in hardback or wait for it to come out in paperback. First there was the fact that I own Spirits in the Wires and Tapping the […]

Spirits in the Wires

Spirits in the Wires (2003) Charles de Lint I’ve reviewed this book previously. This entry is simply to allow me to keep track of how many books I’ve read this year. Rating: 9/10

The Onion Girl

The Onion Girl (2001) Charles de Lint First things first, this is an excellent book. It’s the Jilly book that you always wanted, getting inside her head and learning why she’s the way she is. However, I have to admit that this is one Charles de Lint book that I just don’t like to read. […]

Tapping the Dream Tree

Tapping the Dream Tree (2002) Charles de Lint Tapping the Dream Tree is the fourth collection of Charle de Lint’s short stories based in Newford. It’s also my favorite collection so far. Several stories where Jilly makes an appearence, as well as several other favorite characters, and several new characters, or characters who made a […]
