Received from my good friend KateKintail for Christmas. Thanks so much!

Ooh, there's a story by Christopher Stasheff in here. He's the father of one of my childhood (and ever since) friends. Looking forward to it!

I don't read anthologies very often but a friend gave this to me because it has a Christopher Stasheff story in it I hadn't read. Like most anthologies, it is a mixed bag, but the majority are quite pleasant reads, all related to Christmas in some form. The only sour note was Gael Baudino's "Tidings of Comfort and Joy", which had a lame story and one-dimensional characters. But the rest were charming. I think my favorite might have been "I Sing of a Maiden" by Judith Tarr, but then I always was a sucker for time travel, however subtle. If you can overlook (or skip) Baudino's story, it's a good book for reading by the fireplace.

Thank you so much for sharing this book with me at the Springfield, Virginia, Starbucks* meetup of BCinDC. I'll be saving it to release in my Little Free Library of Twinbrook (#7720).

* I tried the "blonde" coffee today at Starbucks. It tastes as bad as all other Starbucks coffee. :(

I'm releasing this book for the following challenge:

***The 2018 What's in a Name Release Challenge. The title of the book includes the names MAGIC and CHRIS.


Enjoy the book!
