Any Charles De Lint fans?
I have been reading CDL for over 15 years now since I first picked up moonheart on a summer holiday in wales.
I have since got almost everything he has published (even his horror stories written under a different name) and I crave for his next release.
(I once even received an email from him after I mailed him a cd I thought he would like)
(that makes me sound like a right stalking nutter doesnt it? I swear I'm not!!)
Anyway, I think he is the king of urban fantasy, is there any other fans here?

I recently finished Medicine Road - which was previously only available in limited edition and is now re-released. It was excellent - can't recommend it highly enough.

I got an arc of Eyes like Leaves, his new novel due from Subpress. I like it a lot sofar, very much high Fantasy, lots of nature elements, magic. Early De lint, not urban Fantasy.

I've not read many of this authors books, but what I have read I've had mixed reactions to
Greenmantle - I really enjoyed this book, loved the characters and the strange creatures that blended quite well with every day life
The Onion Girl and Memory and Dream - these I found only a fair read, parts of the storylines I enjoyed, but they can be bleak. Too much focus on relationship and personal problems for me

My favorite is still Moonheart. I even made an avatar from its cover.

My favorite remains Moonheart too, the first of his I read. His style isn't really dreamy IMO, except for perhaps one or two books. It is very visual, and his characters are often involved in arts and music. He likes to change his style depending on what sort of story he's doing, so some of his novels and stories are very comedic, some are very dark and horror based, some are more suspense and some are big high fantasy epics. My big problem is trying to remember all the recurring characters, because they are often popping up in stories. I wish he had an index of them somewhere. But you don't really have to be familiar with them to read most of the books. It's not one big story. Basically at this point you can pretty much browse among his prodigious output and just find a story that sounds good to you.

I've been meaning to read De Lint for years: I've had a copy of Moonheart on my shelf since 2003.
I also picked up Into the Green--anyone have an opinion on the later since Moonheart seems pretty well loved?
