Summer Stories and Summer Films

The Ottawa Citizen just posted some summer reading suggestions, and gave The Very Best of Charles de Lint a shout out:

Ottawa fantasy writer Charles de Lint has a unique perspective, creating a fantastic urban world populated with artists, musicians, booksellers, scholars, runaways and, well, magic. With The Very Best of Charles de Lint, the author, who is also a musician, has created a greatest-hits set with a twist. To determine which stories to include (from a body of work spanning 25 years), he asked his fans for their favourites via Facebook and Twitter. The resulting volume is more than 400 pages of the finest urban fantasy fiction of the past three decades, characterized by de Lint's deep and passionate humanism.
You can see the rest of the summer recs here.

And don't forget that this Thursday, June 24th SF in SF presents an Asian Film Night. Come see The Bride With White Hair and A Chinese Ghost Story at The Variety Preview Room. There will be free popcorn, a cash bar, and all proceeds and donations go to the Variety Children's Charity.
