Review by: ulrikeroeckrath on Nov. 01, 2015 :
This was the first book from Charles De Lint I ever read. I purchased it during a long visit to Scotland in 1981, after I had finished school. Up till now it is one of my favorite books and I reread it several times. Unfortunately books from Charles De Lint could not be bought in Germany, bookshops even did not know his name and I could not get more books from this author for many (!) years. Only after the evolution of the internet and the development of online-bookstores there is at last a possibility to purchase many of his books. So during the last few years I have started reading everything I could get from Charles De Lint and I am really delighted.
(reviewed long after purchase)
