Trader <shudder> was on the long list in 98.
I think de Lint is definitely mythical. He just uses the apparatus of the
modern city to create his myth. Of course, his writing is really quite
variable, so the jury's still out (as far as I'm concerned) as to whether he
'counts' in relation to him being what Lisa was calling 'a gem'.
