Charles Vess and Charles de Lint at Malaprop's Tonight

From the Malaprop's website:

Can we just say, Holy Moly! We have fabulous fantasy writer Charles de Lint and incredible fantasy illustrator Charles Vess making appearances together here at Malaprops!

De Lint will read from and sign his new young adult novel Little (Grrl) Lost. Mr. De Lint will choose three lucky winners from our Fantasy Gift Basket Raffle! An event for young adult and adult fans alike!

Time: Monday, September 10, 2007 7:00 PM


De Lint, who according to Wikipedia is also a poet, musician, artist, folklorist as well as an author, writes "mythic fiction" and "urban fantasy" sometimes set in the mythical city of Newford, which has always reminded me of Asheville.

Vess illustrated Neil Gaiman's novella Stardust, which was made into a movie that's still playing around Asheville. He's the artist who shared the controversial 1991 World Fantasy Award with Gaiman, in which the award for Best Short Story went to a comic book Vess had illustrated.
