Twelve Tales of Christmas

Christmas isn't always Jingle Bells and "Ho, ho, ho." In these Twelve Tales of Christmas, even Santa has to deal with unexpected German shepherds and reindeer who suddenly want to learn the tango.

And no one knows what to do with the fire-breathing dragon. He's not going on the Christmas card list anytime soon. Come enter worlds of beauty and dread. Join a house hob as he raises his cup of eggnog high, and enjoy yuletide yarns delicious enough to tempt even St. Nick.
