Here are three heartwarming Christmas stories that capture the spirit and true meaning of the holidays.

Gabriel and Mr. Death

She saved Gabriel's life. Now he must take on Mr. Death to save hers.

Gabriel is a coon hound with an unusual gift: he can see Mr. Death. He doesn't think too hard on it until one Christmas Eve when Mr. Death comes for the person Gabriel loves most. He can't let that happen. No sir, no way. No matter what a poor hound has to do. A touching story by an award-winning author about a dog's love and loyalty and the healing power of family.

Walter's Christmas Night Musik

A little magic, a little Mozart, a big miracle on Christmas Eve. . .

Nothing has gone right for Walter Gunther since his wife died. He had to sell his music store to pay her medical bills and take a job as a clerk in Disks Galore, a big box music store. His manager bullies him and knows nothing about the classical music Walter has cherished all his life. The man can’t even pronounce Mozart’s name correctly. But when Walter is forced to work late on Christmas Eve, he receives a musical gift beyond his wildest imagining.

Originally published in Realms of Fantasy (December 1997), “Walter’s Christmas-Night Musik” was hailed for its "affectionate musical expertise and good-natured charm,” by Locus reviewer Mark Kelly, who also chose it as the best story of that issue. A warm and wonderful story sure to delight music lovers everywhere.

Courtesy Call

A once in a lifetime offer. . .
Peter doesn't mind his job as a telemarketer for LockTite Security Systems, not since Ann left. And he's good at it. Find the need and fill it--that's his secret to success. He works hard to keep his work and his heart as safe as a LockTite system. But when he starts getting calls from a mysterious woman offering him a "one-time gift of the Christmas spirit," nothing is safe anymore. Especially his heart.
