The winner of multiple Hugo and Nebula Awards, Connie Willis capture the timeless essence of generosity and goodwill in this magical collection if Christmas stories.These eight tales-two of which have never before been published-boldly reimagine the stories of Christmas while celebrating the power of love and compassion.This enchanting treasury includes:

"Miracle," in which a young woman's carefully devised plans to find romance go awry when her guardian angel shows her the true meaning of love

"In Coppelius's Toyshop," where a jaded narcissist finds himself trapped in a crowded toy store at Christmastime

"Epiphany," in which three modern-day wisemen embark on a quest unlike any they've ever experienced

"Inn," where a choir singer gives shelter to a homeless man and his pregnant wife-only to learn later that there's much more to the couple than meets the eye

And more

I'm a huge fan of Connie Willis' novels, and I loved this book of short stories, too. It was the story Newsletter that prompted me to buy it. I read it in Asimov's and the combination of sly wit, suspense, and kindness just slayed me. I suspect that it's the only Christmas-themed science fiction/fantasy anthology ever, and I'm so amused that she pulled that off.
