Editorial Reviews

CK2S Kwips and Kritiques
CHRISTMAS WISHES shows just how phenomenal a themed anthology can be. Each of these highly skilled authors brings a slightly different perspective to the Christmas theme to create a book that is sure to leave readers satisfied. What a joy to read such splendid stories! This reviewer looks forward to more anthologies by Highland Press as the quality is simply astonishing.
Reviewers International Organization
If you were to buy one anthology this year of short Christmas stories to settle in on a cold winters night than you won’t go wrong by picking up this entertaining compilation of an even dozen featuring some bright and fresh new talent. The stories run the gamut of contemporary to historical and even a bit of time travel – but more importantly they’re all magical enough to warm the cockles of your heart!
Huntress Reviews
Stories that will keep you smiling and happily humming carols even while you are being crushed in the shopping crowds by grumps. Once you finish this anthology, be sure to place it on your bookshelf or boxed among your decorations so you may reread this gem each December.

    Dribble

    These stories are dribble. Seems like they were written by a 5th grader.

    It's Christmas all year long

    The stories in Highland Press's anthologies are just getting better and better. The ones in Christmas Wishes resonate throughout the year, not just Christmas (I read them in February). They all tell the story of family, people finding love after loss, love for children, finding hope. Stories like these are timeless.

    The PERFECT Christmas gift

    This is a gorgeous tradesize book, with 11 stories and a novella, making a wonderful gift for anyone you know on your shopping list. A little something for everything taste, a hallmark of other Highland Press Anthologies, with talent writers just waiting to be discovered, all the way up to Leanne Burroughs and Deborah MacGillivray.
