Muse and Reverie is another collection of fantasy stories by Charles de Lint. The book contain 13 stories that were published in various places, the beginning in 2001, and no later than 2005. The stories run the gamut from light to dark and all in between. All are entertaining and well worth reading.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Muse and Reverie is an all-new collection of short fiction in Charles de Lint's "Newford" universe—the fifth such collection since 1993, and the first since 2002. Previous collections are Dreams Underfoot, The Ivory and the Horn, the World Fantasy Award-winning Memory and Dream, and Tapping the Dream Tree.

  The city of Newford could be any city in North America, bursting with music, commerce, art, love and hate, and of course magic. Magic in the sidewalk cracks, myth at the foundations of its great buildings, enchantment in the spaces between its people. In this new collection, de Lint explores that magic and those spaces, shedding new light on the people and places that readers of novels like Moonheart, Forests of the Heart, The Onion Girl, and The Mystery of Grace have come to love.
