CCC Says: "I developed a deep appreciation and love for urban fantasy stories in college. One of my English professors had assigned a short story collection for one of the many folklore and fantasy classes I would go on to take. It was there that I first discovered Charles De Lint, as I was drawn to a story called "The Moon is Drowning While I Sleep." I would later learn it was part of his Newford series of stories and novels, set in a modern town where reality and fantasy mingle.
Stick with me, I trust you that this is going somewhere relevant to your interests."
