BeschreibungThe harp was a gift from Jacky Lantern's fey kin, as was the music Angharad pulled from its strings. "Into the Green" is an unusual tale set in an entirely fantasy world, now returned to print in a trade paperback edition.
PortraitBorn in Holland in 1951, Charles de Lint grew up in Canada, with a few years off in Turkey, Lebanon, and Switzerland.
Although his first novel was 1984's "The Riddle of the Wren," it was with" Moonheart," published later that same year, that de Lint made his mark, and established him at the forefront of "urban fantasy," modern fantasy storytelling set on contemporary city streets. " Moonheart "was set in and around "Newford," an imaginary modern North American city, and many of de Lint's subsequent novels have been set in Newford as well, with a growing cast of characters who weave their way in and out of the stories. The Newford novels include" Spirit Walk, Memory and Dream, Trader, Someplace To Be Flying, Forests of the Heart, The Onion Girl, "and" Spirits in the Wires." In addition, de Lint has published several collections of Newford short stories, including "Moonlight and Vines," for which he won the World Fantasy Award. Among de Lint's many other novels are "Mulengro, Jack the Giant-Killer, "and" The Little Country."
Married since 1980 to his fellow musician MaryAnn Harris, Charles de Lint lives in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Pressestimmen"De Lint can feel the beauty of the ancient lore he is evoking. He can well imagine what it would be like to conjure the Other World among ancient standing stones. His characters have a certain fallibility that makes them multidimensional and human, and his settings are gritty. This is no Disneylike Never-Never Land . . . . Life and death in de Lint's world are more than a matter of a few words or a magic crystal. The Sidhe are beguiling, terrifying folk and their Otherwold a realm from which no mortal returns unchanged. De Lint knows that, regardless of what names he uses."-"The Philadelphia Inquirer"
