Spirits in the Wires – Charles de Lint

Spirits in the Wires reads like a story that wiggled into existance from in between the larger characters and story lines in a heavily populated imaginary landscape.  It’s fighting to stand on its own merits, but I don’t think it quite succeeds as an independent book.  There are too many light references to characters that I think I am supposed to know more about in Newford.  The woman in the wheelchair, for one.

Anyhow the two main characters are a ‘dark twin’ and some sort of spirit of the internet. And, a living website.  I liked the internet woman the best – she’s being introduced in this book (get it from the title, eh) and she’s best realized.
