Sf favorite Scalzi gathered 12 previously published pieces and wrote three new short works specifically for this collection. Most entries tend to be shorter in length, which makes them perfect for a quick reading break during the holiday season. Thanksgiving and New Year’s are given brief moments to shine, but it’s Christmas that receives the most attention. The generally humorous stories range in tone from quirky to sweet, but all showcase the author’s inventive imagination in the best possible light.
VERDICT Longtime Scalzi readers will be justifiably thrilled and new fans will be created by the variety offered in this book.
