At the heart of Tamson House is the Wood. And in that Wood is the Mystery

Tamson House, in modern, urban Ottawa, is a rambling, eccentric curiosity of a house―and a place of hidden Power. Built at a point where the leylines meet, upon land that was once a sacred site, it is the gateway to a spirit world where Celtic and Native American magicks mingle and leak into our own.

In the overgrown garden of Tamson House, a Coyote Man waits, green children walk, and music rises to greet the moon. From the garden, a vast and primal wood is just one spirit-step away... and in that wood is something that threatens the very existence of Tamson House, and all who dwell within.

Charles de Lint returns to the spirit-world of his bestselling Moonheart in a splendid work of urban fantasy, bringing myth, music, and magic into our modern world.

About the Author:

CHARLES DE LINT lives in Ottawa, Canada.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A ``fix-up'' to de Lint's Moonheart (1984), consisting of one short and three long stories previously published separately and a brief prologue. Various adventures take place in and around Tamson House, a sprawling structure occupying a full city block in modern-day Ottawa. The House hosts a variety of semi-transient artsy misfits, from neo-pagans to aspiring poets, drawn by its magic; the garden is a gateway to an Otherworld of blended Celtic and Native American mythology. The first story is a sort of set-piece, while each of the other three involves mystical threats to Tamson House and/or its occupants. The good vs. evil plots are very familiar, and de Lint draws little narrative tension out of them. Though the threats seem potent, none of the principal characters ever suffers any real harm. And the characters themselves are not interesting enough to make up for the lack of tension--the mythic figures are simply categorized like game pieces (``the bard,'' ``the woodwitch''), and the ``real'' people (such as Blue, the sensitive ex-biker) are tirelessly reasonable, forgiving, wise, compassionate, fair, selfless--and boring. De Lint's evocative mingling of disparate mythic elements might have provided the missing spark, but his use of the legends never gets beyond New Age shallowness. A disappointment from the author of Jack the Giant Killer and Drink the Moon. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
