Some things should stay buried. Repressed scholar Percival Endicott Whyborne has two skills: reading dead languages and hiding in his office at the Ladysmith Museum. After the tragic death of the friend he secretly loved, he's ruthlessly suppressed any desire for another man. So when handsome ex-Pinkerton Griffin Flaherty approaches him to translate a mysterious book, Whyborne wants to finish the job and get rid of the detective as quickly as possible. Griffin left the Pinkertons following the death of his partner, hoping to start a new life. But the powerful cult which murdered Glenn has taken root in Widdershins, and only the spells in the book can stop them. Spells the intellectual Whyborne doesn't believe are real. As the investigation draws the two men closer, Griffin's rakish charm threatens to shatter Whyborne's iron control. When the cult resurrects an evil sorcerer who commands terrifying monsters, can Whyborne overcome his fear and learn to trust? Will Griffin let go of his past and risk falling in love? Or will Griffin's secrets cost Whyborne both his heart and his life?

Jilly Coppercorn and Geordie Riddell. Since they were introduced in the first Newford story, "Timeskip," back in 1989, their friends and readers alike have been waiting for them to realize what everybody else already knows: that they belong together. But they've been more clueless about how they feel for each other than the characters in When Harry Met Sally. Now in Widdershins, a stand-alone novel of fairy courts set in shopping malls and the Bohemian street scene of Newford's Crowsea area, Jilly and Geordie's story is finally being told. Before it's over, we'll find ourselves plunged into the rancorous and sometimes violent conflict between the magical North American "animal people" and the more newly-arrived fairy folk. We'll watch as Jilly is held captive in a sinister world based on her own worst memories—and Geordie, attempting to help, is sent someplace even worse. And we'll be captivated by the power of love and determination to redeem ancient hatreds and heal old magics gone sour. To walk "widdershins" is to walk counterclockwise or backwards around something. It's a classic pathway into the fairy realm. It's also the way people often back slowly into the relationships that matter, the real ones that make for a life. In Widdershins Charles de Lint has delivered one of his most accessible and moving works of his career. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

A collection of nine marvellous stories of the supernatural. The Edwardian era was the last great period of the English ghost story, and Oliver Onion's ""Widdershins"" is one of the classic collections of the age. Although each of the nine stories here is worth reading, the collection is famous because of ""The Beckoning Fair One,"" a novella of ghostly obsession and mental disintegration just as powerful as Henry James' ""The Turn of the Screw."" ""The Beckoning Fair One"" is one of the most oft-anthologized horror tales. This ghost story has been called one of the best in the English language by such luminaries as Algernon Blackwood and H. P. Lovecraft. The tale concerns an author who moves into a deserted house and starts to become influenced by its ghostly female occupant? Or...is it just in his mind?

The Widdershins Adventures come to a thrilling conclusion in an action-packed fantasy in which the young outlaw with a heart of gold (and the pesky voice of a god in her ear) returns home to face her destiny... After almost a year away from the grand city of Davillon, wandering thief Widdershins has finally come to terms with the pain and grief that drove her to leave. When she returns, all she can hope is that her old friends can forgive her hasty actions. But even that may be too much to ask...because home is not what it used to be. The entire city is on edge, with unrest and rumors of upheaval spreading through the darkened streets, and Shins is shocked to discover that she already knows the person behind the strife all too well—her dreaded nemesis, Lisette Suvagne. Thanks to an unholy bargain with otherworldly powers, the vindictive Lisette is far more dangerous than before—and far too formidable even for Shins and her personal god, Olgun, to confront alone. Now, for the sake of her friends, her city, and her own soul, Shins must gather allies from every corner of Davillon—lawful, unlawful, and seriously unlawful—if she hopes to face the greatest challenge of her life. Because the greatest challenge of Widdershins’ life might also be the end of it...

The continuing fantastical adventures of the young-but-wise thief Widdershins, who carries a deity in her head—and carries the weight of the past on her shoulders... After the tragic events that befell her and her friends, Widdershins--along with her aggravating personal god Olgun—fled her home city of Davillon searching for respite. But there is little peace to be found in the increasingly troubled land. And no place is more troubled than the town of Lourveaux, where intrigues and conspiracies against both the church and the government buzz like flies. But Shins is more concerned with the local Delacroix family than whoever wants to take down the powers-that-be. Because her beloved, late adoptive father was a Delacroix. Now, the last remnants of House Delacroix are under siege. Their crops are being blighted. A rival noble house is striving against them. And a ruthless criminal gang with their very own alchemist is working from the shadows to take them down. But Widdershins isn’t the kind of girl who forgets her family... ...and the enemies of the Delacroix have no idea what they’re about to come up against.

It’s been over half a year, now, since the brutal murder of Archbishop William de Laurent during his pilgrimage to the Galicien city of Davillon. During that time, the Church of the Hallowed Pact has assigned a new bishop to the city—but it has also made its displeasure at the death of its clergyman quite clear. Davillon’s economy has suffered beneath the weight of the Church’s displeasure. Much of the populace—angry at the clergy— has turned away from the Church hierarchy, choosing private worship or small, independent shrines. And the bishop, concerned for his new position and angry at the people of Davillon, plans to do something about it. But a supernatural threat is stalking the nighttime streets—a creature of the other world has come to infiltrate the seedier streets of Davillon, to intertwine its tendrils through the lower echelons of society. Faced with both political upheaval and a supernatural threat to its citizenry, the local representatives of the Church are paralyzed and the Guardsmen are in over their heads. And then there’s Widdershins--who’s tried, and failed, to stay out of trouble since taking over Genevieve’s tavern; who’s known to the Church and the Guard both, and trusted by neither; who may, with some of her Thieves’ Guild contacts, have unwittingly played a part in the bishop’s plans; and who, along with her personal god Olgun, may be the only real threat to the supernatural evil infesting Davillon.

Once she was Adrienne Satti. An orphan of Davillon, she had somehow escaped destitution and climbed to the ranks of the city's aristocracy in a rags-to-riches story straight from an ancient fairy tale. Until one horrid night, when a conspiracy of forces--human and other--stole it all away in a flurry of blood and murder. Today she is Widdershins, a thief making her way through Davillon's underbelly with a sharp blade, a sharper wit, and the mystical aid of Olgun, a foreign god with no other worshippers but Widdershins herself. It's not a great life, certainly nothing compared to the one she once had, but it's hers. But now, in the midst of Davillon's political turmoil, an array of hands are once again rising up against her, prepared to tear down all that she's built. The City Guard wants her in prison. Members of her own Guild want her dead. And something horrid, something dark, something ancient is reaching out for her, a past that refuses to let her go. Widdershins and Olgun are going to find answers, and justice, for what happened to her--but only if those who almost destroyed her in those years gone by don't finish the job first.
