Dreams Underfoot: The Newford Collection by Charles de Lint

Publisher's Summary: Welcome to Newford: to the music clubs, the waterfront, and the alleyways where ancient myths and magic spill into the modern world. Gemmins live in abandoned cars and skells traverse the tunnels below, while mermaids swim in the gray harbor waters and fill the cold night with their song.
Come meet Jilly, painting wonders in the rough city streets; and Geordie, playing fiddle while he dreams of a ghost; and the Angel of Grasso Street gathering the fey and the wild and the poor and the lost. Dreams Underfoot is a must-read book not only for fans of urban fantasy but for all who seek magic in everyday life.
From Goodreads.

This is the best audible I have heard to date, Kate Reading did a good job. I have read Charles de Lint before and really like his urban fantasy. The magic is right here with us if we would just see it.
I enjoyed the different stories and the way they were part of one story. We meet people in one story and learn more about them in another. I am looking forward to read / listen to more books from Newford.
