The stories in this collection are inspired by the 1972 British folk-rock album Bright Phoebus by Lal & Mike Waterson. Each story is named for a track on the album, and the stories, which take place in the fictional town of Kinsit, are greatly inspired by the whimsical and haunting, campfire-story tones of the Watersons’ songs. Bright Phoebus was, for me, a love letter to the soul the first time I heard it. Tied to a Pole: the Kinsit Collection is, in a way, my aching response to that letter.
