This book has been a good friend over the years. Short stories that are excellent bedtime reads.
I don't often read fiction, but this author is one of my favourites, due to the vivid imagery that's used in everyone of his stories. If you like fantasy with an occult, dark and relatable theme, try it out.

Charles De Lint brought me around to the "fantasy" style of writing. I had never once found myself interested in a fantasy novel before him. Since then, I find myself scooping up every single book I've found by him.
This particular novel is a wonderful collection of short stories, incorporating favorite Newford characters we've all come to know and love. Good for a quick read or a quick fix on a long day.
