What happens when you mix a true dreamer with a dream thief?

Urban Sci-Fi/Fantasy has been around for decades, as we know, and one of the greatest of this genre's authors is Charles de Lint. Haven't read anything by him yet? Give Yarrow a try! Set in Ottawa in the 1980's, we find a cast of characters seemingly separate, yet all connected by Cat, a true dreamer, and Lysistratus a vampiric dream thief. Add in a little romance and gnome named Tiddy Mun, and you're all set for magic and mayhem on the streets and in the dreams of Ottawa.
