100-Word Review: Spirits in the Wires by Charles de Lint

with 2 comments

Spirits in the Wires was the first Charles de Lint book I’ve read (thanks, Lisa!), but it surely won’t be the last.  de Lint’s particular brand of urban fantasy hit just the right notes with me, especially given the focus on the Internet in this book: a website existing as an actual place in another dimension and sucking people into itself through the ‘net?  Ridiculous, maybe, but exactly my kind of ridiculous.  His characters (many of whom, it seems, were supporting players in his other “Newford” novels) all feel like real people with real lives dealing with extraordinarily unreal circumstances.

Grade: A-
