9780142401583: Waifs and Strays

From one of the fantasy genre's greatest trailblazers, Waifs and Strays is a must-read.
Charles de Lint's remarkable novels and shorter fiction are, in a very real sense, coming of age stories. Here, for the first time, is a collection of his stories for teen and adult readers alike. From the streets of his famed Newford to the alleys of Bordertown to the realms of Faerie, this is storytelling that will transfix and delight, with characters who will linger in the mind, many of them from his novels. Featuring an illuminating preface by acclaimed author, anthologist, and critic Terri Windling, Waifs and Strays is a must-own for de Lint fans, and an ideal introduction to his work for newcomers.

Review:

"Sixteen short stories by the noted urban fantasist capture both the wistful sadness of epic ballads and the lingering beauty of summer dreams ... De Lint's pen is ever graceful and evocative, his heroines simultaneously earthy and evanescent."

"This is the perfect de Lint primer." ("Chronicle")

Praise for Waifs and Strays...
"This is the perfect de Lint primer." -- Chronicle
"Mythic fiction is at its best in this anthology of stories of memorable heroines..." -- School Library Journal
