Tell me more about this urban fantasy series- including titles so I can hunt it down at the library/bookstore. Please?
I’m going to try to link to the Wikipedia entry that lists the Newford series in chronological order, but you can jump in anywhere! A lot of his characters recur throughout (the Crow Girls are particularly creepy and fun).
My favorites are Moonlight and Vines (a collection of shorts), The Onion Girl, Spirits in the Wires, and Widdershins.
I would say if you like Neil Gaiman or modern fantasy in general you should absolutely read De Lint. Anytime I read one of his books I spend maybe a week or so looking twice at dust motes and crows and dark alleys.
