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. Luckily, Conn's fellow musician, Miki, who is a de Lint regular character, knows just how to fight the world of fey, and it's a race against time to save her friend from... well, read it and find out. As usual, de Lint draws you in and makes the story happen right in front of your eyes. A keeper!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite Enjoyable 29 Dec. 2012
By PD Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
If you like Charles de Lint, then you will enjoy this book. If you don't know de Lint, this story will give you a slight taste of what he is about. However predictable his stories might be, it is always enjoyable to spend time in his fantasy world, hanging with his characters, whether human, fey or manitou. Contemporary fantasy so good, some swear it's true.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the Kindle edition Charles DeLints work 15 Mar. 2013
By Gail Hunter - Published on Amazon.com

Charles DeLint is one of my favorite authors. So far I have not read a book or story by Charles DeLint that I did not like. I received a Kindle in 2010 so was very happy to be able to get some of Mr. DeLint's never work in Kindle format
4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read! 26 Nov. 2012
By I am Blind Man - Published on Amazon.com

Amazon offers about five Charles de Lint short stories for $0.99 or less and at that price, they are a bargain. Personally, I found them to be a nice introduction to the author's work, as I had never read anything before by him. Of the five short stories offered, `The Butter Spirit's Tithe' was the most enjoyable. I really enjoyed the manner in which the author managed the `old' world view of spirits and mystical beings with the `new' world culture of spirits. There was a definite feeling of respect for both cultures in the writing. I also enjoyed the development of his characters as well as how he built a story that felt like it was part of something bigger. Overall, I would recommend this short story as a good starting point for someone trying to pick a new author to read. Hopefully, when I get time, I will download something more substantive from the author's extensive body of work. I'm certain I will enjoy giving it a read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Urban Fantasy by the Master 26 Oct. 2013
By Deestarr1 - Published on Amazon.com

We have all heard of Newford and the strange and unusual things that happen there. It is a city where fae, and human mix and often one cannot tell the difference between the two. This often leads to problems when humans fall into conflict with members of the Faery Realm. Conn O' Neill knows this well.

Charles de Lint is one of the masters of Urban Fantasy and is often called the "Father of Urban Fantasy" for good reason. This book blends a hefty dose of Celtic myth and legend with modern Irish pragmatism.De Lint presents a picture in which the Fae are weakened because people no longer believe in them but, they are by no means powerless. His writing is impressively detailed. Frankly this is one of the best short stories I have ever read by de Lint and I am rather surprised that I did not run into this little gem in the original collection it was published in.
5.0 out of 5 stars Love 2 Dec. 2013

I love the characters here even if it's a short story, they're easily relatable. The music is described so well, I can feel my feet tapping when they start playing. Conn is a musician whose behavior unintentionally begets the ire of a butter spirit. He has to stop the butter spirit's intention to offer his soul to the Grey Man with the help of his musician partner, Miki and her friends. This is a story about helpful friends and true love.
