This thoughtful little tale has been published before in one of Charles de Lint's anthologies. However, it's nice to have it on Kindle too. It tells the story of a young musician who upsets a 'butter spirit' who not only plays nasty tricks but wants the boy for the tithe to a much nastier spirit, the Grey Man.

As usual, de Lint draws you in and makes the story happen right in front of your eyes. A keeper!
