Fantasy & Science Fiction
He shows that, far from being escapism, contemporary fantasy can be the deep mythic literature of our time.
Alice Hoffman
Charles de Lint is the modern master of urban fantasy. Folktale, myth, fairy tale, dreams, urban legend-all of it adds up to pure magic in de Lint's vivid, original world. No one does it better.
Jane Yolen
Charles de Lint is a folksinger as well as a writer and it is this voice we hear...both old and new, lyric, longing, touched by magic.
Andre Norton
Mr. de Lint's handling of ancient folklore to weave an entirely new pattern has never, to my knowledge, been equalled.
Parke Godwin
De Lint's touch is deft and clean in a genre choked with tin eared dialogue and warmed over Dunsany and Tolkien. His narrative has the deceptive simplicity and tension of Alan Garner.
Library Journal
He has a unique ability to weave together a seamless pattern of magic and realism.
James P. Blaylock
You open a de Lint story, and like the interior of a very genial Pandora's box, the atmosphere is suddenly full of deep woods and quaint city streets and a magic that's nowhere near so far removed as Middle Earth.
Booklist
One of the most original fantasy writers currently working.
Gordon R. Dickson
With The Little Country Charles de Lint has escalated from fine writer to writer of classics.
Locus
One of the most gifted storytellers writing fantasy today.
Darrell Schweitzer
Canadian writer and folk musician Charles de Lint has been a steady producer of fantasy fiction that shows clear respect for what Tolkien accomplished in The Lord of the Rings, yet has moved beyond it, into something distinctly his own. De Lint can feel the beauty of the ancient lore he is evoking. He can well imagine what it would be like to conjure the Other World among ancient standing stones. His characters have a certain fallibility that makes them multidimensional and human, and his settings are gritty. This is no Disneylike Never-Never Land. Life and death in de Lint's world are more than a matter of a few words or a magic crystal.
