Review

" In de Lint's capable hands, modern fantasy becomes something more than escapism. It becomes folk song, the stuff of urban myth." -- "The ""Phoenix"" Gazette """
"It is hard to imagine urban fantasy done better than it is by de Lint at his best, and this book shows his imagination and craft at their highest levels. . . . Deserves the highest recommendation and the widest readership."
--"Booklist" on "Memory and Dream"
"A novel of scope and ambition . . . The glamour and wonder of his earliest novels has matured into a book of sophisticated and human concern."
--"Science Fiction Age" on" Memory and Dream"

"Top form . . . His multi-voiced, time-shifting narrative beautifully evokes a sense of creative community, making it almost possible to believe that the rarified aesthetic atmosphere might well be capable of conjuring up a spirit or two."

" Charles de Lint is a master of contemporary fantasy and nowhere is that more apparent than here ... A pleasure to read."
--KLIATT on" Memory and Dream"
" [De Lint] moves gracefully through the borders between reality and imagination, weaving a powerful tale about the relationship between an artist and her work. A strong addition to fantasy collections."

Format: Kindle Edition
In general I love Charles de Lint's work. Moonheart was my least favourite so far. Memory And Dream is definitely one of his most interesting and original stories. As always, the characters are the sort you wish you knew, and I include the city of Newford as a character in itself. The plot is really quite unusual and the ending was both sad and satisfying. Apart from the fantastical element, this story was really great in the way that the central character grew and changed; she does it like a real person not a book person, which means she screws up and has to rely on her friends, and is left regretting things sometimes. No neat tying up of loose ends or magic fixes. Whenever I finish a Newford story I always feel elated to have spent time in that world, and a little sad that I can't live there all the time.
