2007 Books #5: The Hour Before Dawn: And Two Other Stories from Newford, by Charles de Lint
it almost doesn't count as a book when it's only three stories, but somebody bound them together and sold it in book form, so i'm calling it a book! the three stories were as good as you'd expect from charles de lint - recognizably written in his style, which i like quite a lot. his characters are particularly good. it's like he's writing about things that happen to people he knows, instead of creating fiction.
