Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for TRADER by Charles de Lint.

“De Lint's latest urban fantasy is an outstanding effort, even for him, the master of the category. It uses the old theme of individuals' minds suddenly trading bodies - in this case, mild-mannered luthier Leonard Trader's mind exchanging bodies with that of ne'er-do-well Johnny Devlin. The subsequent story of Trader's effort to survive in Devlin's milieu and Devlin's to exploit Trader's situation for wine, women, and song is minutely detailed, thoroughly engrossing, and not in the least angst-ridden. De Lint is a master at world building, at creating the apt image, and at making grippingly suspenseful a story in which the fate of the characters may have no cosmic significance but is vitally important to them and their closest friends. It is hard to imagine urban fantasy done with greater skill, even by de Lint himself.”
