Talking 99 cents today! Gifts of the Magi: A Speculative Holiday Collection - benefits litera

Gifts of the Magi: a Speculative Holiday Collection gathers original fiction assembled by editors and SFG members John F. Allen, E. Chris Garrison and R.J. Sullivan.



Amazon Kindle Ebook and paperback: http://www.amazon.com/Gifts-Magi-Spe.../dp/B00P042IQ0


The editors made a list of up-and-coming new voices that they loved to read, checked it twice, and started inviting. While some authors couldn’t do it, most of them offered an immediate and enthusiastic “yes”, and contributed some amazing stories.

In most cases, the editors requested stories set within an author’s series universe. Readers of fan favorite series can return to familiar settings and characters, such as the Coyote Series by Chantal Noordeloos and the Clockwork Republics tales by Katina French. NYT and USA Today Bestseller Debra Holland also revisited the fantasy world of her Gods’ Dream Trilogy, and the anthology editors have each contributed a new story from their ongoing series.

Stories for Christmas– authors for the New Year!

Find within this magical tome 14 NEW original holiday-themed stories of fantasy, horror and science fiction by a talented group of authors–plus one holiday essay. The tales from our Magi vary from the light and satirical to the dark and serious, and we’ve shuffled the deck to keep you guessing.
  • In “Unraveled” by A.D. Roland, a time guardian may have to choose between preserving reality or destroying the man she loves.
  • In “Freezy the Snow Demon” by Scott M. Sandridge, a snowman comes to life, but he’s not a happy soul.
  • In “How Krampus Saved Christmas” by S.H. Roddey, Santa makes a terrible bargain in order to save Christmas.
  • On Christmas Eve, a furious fairy princess attacks a double-decker bus in E. Chris Garrison‘s “Christmas Special”.

  • In “The Dead of Night” by David Jobe, soldiers in the midst of the zombie apocalypse try to find the Christmas spirit.
  • A boy and his father confront an alien creature on…”The Longest Night” by Matthew Barron.
  • In “An Ivory Christmas” by John F. Allen, a mercenary packing magical pistols battles a monster while Christmas shopping for her werewolf boyfriend.
  • Steampunk detectives find themselves fending off Christmas “elves” in “The Curious Case of the Cobbler’s Christmas” by Katina French.
  • Humans exiled to an alternate world blend alien and human holiday traditions in “A Season of Renewal” by Debra Holland.
