Muse and Reverie

Newford

Tor Books

Muse and Reverie is an all-new collection of short fiction in Charles de Lint’s “Newford” universe—the fifth such collection since 1993, and the first since 2002. Previous collections are Dreams Underfoot, The Ivory and the Horn, the World Fantasy Award-winning Memory and Dream, and Tapping the Dream Tree.

 The city of Newford could be any city in North America, bursting with music, commerce, art, love and hate, and of course magic. Magic in the sidewalk cracks, myth at the foundations of its great buildings, enchantment in the spaces between its people. In this new collection, de Lint explores that magic and those spaces, shedding new light on the people and places that readers of novels like Moonheart, Forests of the Heart, The Onion Girl, and The Mystery of Grace have come to love.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

REVIEWS

Praise for Muse and Reverie

“A master storyteller, de Lint blends Celtic, Native American, and other cultures into a seamless mythology that resonates with magic and truth.” —Library Journal

 
“What makes de Lint’s particular brand of fantasy so catchy is his attention to the ordinary. Like great writers of magic realism, he writes about people in the world we know, encountering magic as part of that world.” —Booklist

 
“In the fictional city of Newford, replete with the brutal realities of modern urban life, de Lint’s characters encounter magic in strange and unexpected places…. In de Lint’s capable hands, modern fantasy becomes something other than escapism. It becomes folk song, the stuff of urban myth.” —The Phoenix Gazette on Dreams Underfoot

“De Lint is a master of the modern urban folk tale.” —The Denver Post on The Ivory and the Horn

“Fulfilling and rewarding…. Every story is a discovery.” —Quill & Quire on Tapping the Dream Tree
