    2. It's great that MaryAnn talked Charles into publishing this collction because it gives his fans a glimpse of his early work and of the evolution of his writing style. Without this book, many of these stories and poems would remain read by only the receivers of his Christmas chaobooks and his wife, as they often weren't republishd in his normal collections.As for the contents of the volume, they're prime examples of de Lint's talent, though his poetry is distinctly different from his narrative st [...]

    3. Always a joy to return to de Lint's world and spend time with the Kelledys, Jilly, Geordie, the Crow girls, and so many others. Also interesting to watch the development of a writer over 25 years of stories.
