"Somewhere in my mind there is a Painting Box" -- ok, typical de Lint once you go to fairy you always want to go back.

"Refinerytown" -- cute story, enjoyed, but not a lot of meat.

"A Crow Girls Christmas" -- if you like the Crow Girls (and who doesn't), this is fun, light, story. All it was meant to be too.

"Dark eyes, Faith, and Devotion" -- Ok to meh.

"Riding Shotgun" -- Fantastic, so far, the best in the collection and well worth the read.

"Sweet Forget-me-Not" -- Forgettable (heck, had to look at the story again to remember I just read it the night before writing this.

"That was Radio Clash" --Story on the cusp of being something really good. Just missed being something interesting.

"The Butter Spirit's Tithe" -- Good story featuring some of the things de Lint does best.

"Da Slockit Light" -- Another good one with the appearance of some old friends and growth of Newford world.

"The Hour Before Dawn" -- a nice "ghost" story.

"Newford Spook Squad" -- a piece of fiction de Lint did for a Hellboy fiction collection. Forgettable de Lint story, forgettable Hellboy story. Hellboy does't belong in Newford.

In sight
The world in a box.
