Oo...kay. I was trying to add a review for _Muse and Reverie_, and it keeps giving me an entry for Jack of Kinrowan when I try to select that title.

So...this is for _Muse and Reverie_...a good collection overall, even if de Lint's standby story lines of simple inner-city musicians encounter the magical is getting a little worn. I just wish he'd shown a little more creativeness with this volume. The only standout stories are "Somewhere in My Mind There is a Painting Box" and the story near the end that involves Hellboy. Clearly the latter must have been written for some sort of "guest anthology" for the comic character, but I found it a bit distracting in this volume.

CdL can still spin magic, thus the 3 stars, but his webs wear thin with time and re-use.
