My ears can trace a direct spiritual lineage between 1976’s Silly Sisters (Maddy Prior & June Tabor) and the breathtaking harmonies of Lady Maisery (Hannah James, Hazel Askew & Rowan Rheingans). Mayday is brimmed full with lovely renditions of traditional songs (and one Kate Bush cover) that breathe new life into the British music tradition.
Our hearts now belong to this illustration.

Here’s the book description:
Yellow Dog is a short story set near de Lint’s fictional desert town of Santo del Vado Viejo, where his novels The Mystery of Grace and The Painted Boy take place, and where some of his recent short fiction has been set.
Ernie Grant is a decent guy, a bit of a desert rat who works at a scrap yard where he has to put up with racist comments from his crass, bullish boss. The boss works by night as a self-proclaimed Minuteman protecting the U.S. borders from the influx of illegal Mexicans. Ernie and his friend Salvador also search the desert at night, but they carry food, water and blankets to help the same travellers in the unforgiving desert.
One day a mysterious stranger shows up at the scrap yard, unable to speak, but willing to help in more ways than one.
Yellow Dog first appeared in 2007 as one of Charles de Lint’s personal chapbooks that he gave to family and friends. It was reprinted the following year as a limited edition chapbook from Subterranean Press. This is its first worldwide release in an inexpensive format.
Congrats to Charles Vess, who just won the Spectrum Silver Award for his art in our book, The Cats of Tanglewood Forest! I am privileged to work with an artist of his calibre and even more so, to have him as a friend.
