I picked up a copy of this at Otherworlds Books Store in Providence Rhode Island when I was going for a job interview. I was lucky to get the leather bound edition. I had read the story in Spiritwalk and I had no Idea that de Lint put these stories out as chap books. This and other items started a frenzy of collecting.
