::: Memory and Dream (de Lint)

*sigh*  His books always leave me conflicted.  I'm at once immensely satisfied (because like all his books it's such a deeply right story) and immensely discontented (because I can't go live in Newford and have these people for my friends).  I am also equal parts inspired (I want to write stories like this!!) and depressed (I can't write stories like this!!).  Perhaps a good way to go into SSIAW?

That's funny, I read Gods Behaving Badly by Marie Phillips a few months ago and had the same thought about that book: "Yes, THIS is the book I wish I'd written...dammit, I couldn't have written this if my life depended on it!"

It's not terribly deep, it just made me laugh out loud the whole way through (not unlike Good Omens).

Oh, and I'm with you about wanting those friends! I haven't read Memory and Dream, but while reading The Onion Girl, I kept thinking "I want BFF's like that!"

Yeah, that was awesome. You must read Memory and Dream! I would trade any number of real people I could name for these fictional characters :)

oh and what is the weird dancing blue thing? Looks like a cross between a smurf and a Slushee...
