A complete novel from this well-respected master of modern fantasy.
Charles de Lint’s Spiritwalk (1992) is the sequel to Moonheart, his groundbreaking novel about the people in and around a house in modern Ottawa that straddles this world and another one. Here is the same cast of characters, as they deal with a pair of very different threats to the ancient house. As in Moonheart, de Lint skilfully combines a contemporary sensibility, a great sensitivity to the rhythms and patterns of myth and folktale, and a set of simply likeable characters whose lives you find yourself wanting to hang out in.
Spiritwalk is currently technically out of print; there are copies in retail pipelines, but they’re increasingly scarce. Tor has a trade paperback reissue scheduled for mid-2010. Meanwhile, and in celebration of Read an Ebook Week, we’re happy to present (with the author’s enthusiastic permission!) this electronic edition for you to immediately enjoy.
Technically a sequel, but commenters say it stands reasonably well on its own.
