Wonders abound at Christmas, and never more so than in this delightful collection of holiday stories by some of today’s most gifted writers of fantasy and science-fiction. In this volume, Harlan Ellison, Alan Dean Foster, Kit Reed, Howard Waldrop, Donald Westlake, and many other science fiction and fantasy stars present their unique visions of Christmas.

Toys come to life for one miraculous hour. A little girl sets forth on a quest to join Santa’s elves. Talking animals, away in a manger, bring two lovers together, and a small boy discovers the secret of Santa’s tenth reindeer. These and other stories raise Christmas spirits to fantastic new heights, and find unexpected twists and surprises in even the oldest of holiday traditions.

Sorcery comes gift wrapped this year, and just in time for Christmas Magic.
