  1. Alright a new book!

    Though I really did enjoy the Unforgiven which certainly was a unique ghost story.

    I am also listening to the "How to Disappear Completely" and enjoying it. While there is some similarity to Gaiman's Neverwhere, it is only a passing similarity and this book totally holds up so far on it's own. There is just something about urban fantasies in London that seem to make them more possible. Though "War for the Oaks" gave an American city the same run.

  2. I never thought about the urban fantasy-London connection but you are right. Though New York could probably do the same. And I completely agree about War for the Oaks which was in ... St. Paul? Or somewhere unlikely seeming.

  3. Yes, it was in St. Paul.

    As for New York, I think it is sure age that gives London its possibilities - the conjunction of old history intersecting the modern. New York while old for U.S. standards. Just does not compare.

  4. I don't know that "old" in that sense is required. Charles DeLint has been doing very well for years with urban fantasy in Canadian city settings. Though I find his later works to be not nearly as good as his earlier he still manages to overlay that urban fantasy "oldness" in that setting ... a la the use of St. Paul by Emma Bull.


I can't hear you ...
