-The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. 'Superior work that upholds de Lint's high reputation definitely recommended for fantasy collections. 'This collection of conceptually innovative, thematically simple stories proves again that de Lint is a leading talent in the urban fantasy subgenre. Kate Reading tells their stories as if she knows her characters well and is familiar with their tales. She uses pace, timing, and tone to reflect the personalities of the main characters without neglecting the minor players.

Dreams Underfoot book. Dreams Charles de Lint was writing urban fantasy well before the genre's current wave of popularity. Charles de Lint seems to do what many New York Times Bestselling authors fail to do; he is able to tell simple (Note: I do not mean simplistic) stories, and keep the meat and potatoes in place.

Charles De Lint, John Jude Palencar. I sank down and sat in the doorway, my legs swinging in the space below, and looked at where he’d been. I guess I was there for awhile, just trying to take it all in. I sank down and sat in the doorway, my legs swinging in the space below, and looked at where he’d been n camping with my brother and a couple of friends from the neighborhood. I woke early the first morning and stuck my head out of the tent to find myself face to face with a deer. We both held our breath for what seemed like hours.

Wild, but curiously childlike; wise and yet playful; existing outside the confines of conventional morality, and yet bringing hope and clarity to everyone whose lives they touch.

In Dreams Underfoot, DeLint gathers a collection of short stories, populated by characters that weave in and out among the various plots (and each other's lives), all in a city entirely the product of his imagination. The city allows his genius exceptional freedom to create lives and situations with its multiple districts and economies. The stories, the people and their lives always play out in parts of the city with ease. At the same time, they bring the reader on an excursion of exploration, finding places unknown, but places that round out the whole character of the city. These short stories are first voyages of discovery of Newford, as well as our introduction to a number of wonderful characters.

I cannot say enough good things about Charles de Lint's worlds. They draw you in and make you feel as though you have a new home. This is a collection of stories, mostly involving the town of Newford, which is a place I would move if I could do so. This was the first book I bought of his, and I've re-bought it to gift to others in an effort to introduce his worlds to them. It's an excellent staring place and a stand alone read too.

This was recommended to me as an easy entry point into the 'Newford' series of Urban Fantasy work by Charles De Lint, it's also the fourth straight book I've completed reading by De Lint, having previously read 'Greenmantle', 'Yarrow', and 'The Wild Wood'. 'Dreams Underfoot' is a selection of short stories featuring many of the same characters, and reads almost like a novel if you go the whole way through. The characters are fantastic, and the language is awesome. You can tell his writing had progressed since 'Yarrow' written a few years earlier. It is somewhat denser than his earlier works, but also in the long run a more rewarding read. I approached 'Newford' with trepidation because I'm not normally an Urban Fantasy reader, it just hasn't interested me. But the writing is just phenomenal. I immediately ordered a bunch more De Lint including most of Newford until my wallet was hurting too much. I am a binge reader and buyer. I know De Lint will supply me with many more hours of happy reading.

In the nineteen stories about the fictional Canadian city of Newford collected in this book, Charles de Lint relocates the mythical creatures of fairy tale and folklore from their traditional settings and surrounds them with urban scenery. As one character writes in the final story: "That was the real magic for me: the possibility that we only have to draw aside a veil to find the world a far more strange and wondrous place than its mundaneness allowed it could be." That quote sums up why I love the Newford stories than I ever could.
While not a novel, these stories do add up to more than the sum of their parts. Minor characters in one story may go on to star in stories of their own. Events in one tale have resonances later on. The reader is given a cross-sectional look at the small events that make up life in this city, and gets a chance to know its inhabitants.
De Lint's prose is gentle and relaxing. These stories almost beg to be read aloud, so that the reader can savor the language. Whenever I'm feeling upset, I know I can read one of de Lint's stories and feel better, just by "listening" to his voice. He doesn't always have something groundbreaking to say about people or life or love, but sometimes it's good to be reminded of things we already know to be true, and even better to be reminded in such a beautiful fashion.

I love the concept of a series of stories that weave together loosely, the parallel universe of supernatural reminded me of the Hellboy universe. While enjoyable I will say the tone gets pretty ponderous by the last quarter of the book. It makes you hope there are the sort of genuinely magical moments in the world and you just haven't encountered one yet.

I’ve been reading De Lint’s Newford books for a while but never took the trouble to track down #1. I’ve decided to start at the beginning and it was fun to see all the usual characters from other books get introduced for the first time.

It's Charles de Lint, folks! 'Nuff said! Have never read a de Lint book that did not speak to me. He is inventive, creative, talented, and his stories strum wild music on my heartstrings.
I have read 35 or more books by Charles de Lint. Every single one draws me in, wraps itself around my heart and stays with me long after the last page is read. You simply cannot go wrong with the story telling of this amazing writer, musician and artist.

Start here, start with another, pick up half a dozen, you won't regret it. No one tells a story better.
