Heather Shaw and Tim Pratt have spent the past decade spinning tales of holiday magic (and occasional terror) for delighted readers, and those winter wonderlands are collected here for the first time.

In these stories, a Christmas wish becomes a Krampus curse, the holiday spirit turns dangerously contagious, the queen of winter visits the icy moon Europa, a jinni looks for love in a steamy cafe, a trickster god celebrates New Year's Eve, a pair of cryptozoologists hunt flying reindeer, and Ebenezer Scrooge hires a ghost-hunter to rid him of meddlesome spirits -- among other celebrations.

Also includes their cult classic "The Christmas Mummy", the story that started it all, and a brand new sequel, "The Christmas Abomination from Beyond the Back of the Stars."
