The Hour Before Dawn is a very special gathering of stories set in Newford, the city where magic and the mundane interact. It includes three never-before-collected tales, one of which is making its first appearance anywhere:
|"The Hour Before Dawn"
||original to this collection|
|"That Was Radio Clash"
||Taverns of the Dead, ed. Kealen Patrick Burke, Cemetery Dance, 2004|
|"The Butter Spirit's Tithe"
||Emerald Green: Great Tales of Irish Fantasy, ed. Andrew M. Greeley, Forge, 2004|
That's not all. The Hour Before Dawn is also the first book to be illustrated by Charles de Lint himself. In addition to the full-color cover, Charles has created a full-page black and white illustration for each story. The Limited and Lettered Editions will contain an extra, full-color frontispiece, not appearing anywhere else.
