    1. I received this book in a Prime Books bundle purchased to help the Worldbuilders fundraiser started by author Patrick Rothfus.I was first drawn in by the cover art It is gorgeous Really, I am a sucker for good cover art Then I noticed the authors whose stories were inside Many of my favorite science fiction and fantasy authors were includedis was perfect reading for the weekend before the Christmas Holidays I seem to remember having read a couple of these stories before as all were first publish [...]


    2. All collections are a mixed bag, but this had stories I enjoyed than ones I didn t There s time travel, magic, something like androids, settings fantastical and real Of especial interest to me Nutcracker Coup by Janet Kagan This was the story I got the book for, and it s a fun story about Christmas on an alien planet, new traditions and old and the power of a few to stand up to a tyrant The Night Things Changes Dana Cameron A story about vampires and werewolves who fight evil.Christmas at Hosta [...]


    3. An excellent mix of holiday themed stories, with only a couple that left me unmoved I had read some of them before in the magazines or anthologies they first appeared in, but they were worthy of re reading and collecting in one place During the holidays I often read Connie Willis collection of Christmas stories now I have another place to turn


    4. So everything was well written and this collection is all previously published stories I had my favorites The Nutcracker Coup, If Dragon s Mass Eve be Cold and Clear, Wise Men, Home for Christmas, The Loop, Newsletter, The Winter Solstice and Christmas at Hostage Canyon So overall a good anthology The Best Christmas Ever James Patrick Kelly Its about the last humans on earth and the robots that care for them Not really my cup of tea2 starsGo Toward the Light Harlan Ellison A time travel finds hi [...]


    5. A collection of Christmas themed short stories with a genre bent As with most collections, this was hit or miss for me, but as with most collections I appreciated the chance to sample some authors I d never heard of, whose work I might not otherwise have picked up Particular standouts for me were Robert Charles Wilson s Julian A Christmas Story , which transcended its shopworn genre tropes through strong worldbuilding and its narrator s strength of character, and Connie Willis Newsletters , a hu [...]


    6. I found this at Chapters on the 5 table I was like, science fiction AND Christmas Score I had never read a book full of short stories, so I said why not It was December and I was in a Christmas mood.So the stories were decent This is the first time I read a book filled with short stories, and I find it trickier to get into a story or get to love characters if you know it will all end in a few pages That said, there were a couple that I liked and that stuck out The Nutcracker Coup was pretty cool [...]


    7. When I saw the wintery blue glow of Nick Deligaris cover image for Prime Books Season of Wonder anthology I knew it would have to be an early Christmas gift to myself And why not Seasonal genre reading to celebrate the holidays This one was a no brainer Given the fact that most of our Christmas season has felt like early Spring, immersing myself in winter themed short fiction seemed like the right prescription for an injection of Christmas spirit And in many ways it was.I read the first third of [...]


    8. If you are looking for scifi fantasy themed holiday stories, this is not a bad choice Although there were a number of stories I didn t enjoy, there were also many I did In particular, I liked If dragons eve be cold and clear, The nutcracker coup, Loop, Home for christmas, A woman s best friend, Christmas at hostage canyon, The winter solstice, and Newsletter If you want a much darker holiday themed fantasy story, I recommend the novel Krampus The Yule Lord by Brom.


    9. A collection of stories about the Christmas Winter Solstice written from the 1950 s to 2010 s One of them on a distant planet where Christmas Fourth of July coincide, what better than fireworks with presents.Some of them are thought provoking, letting you walk a mile in a stranger shoes Others are flights of fantasy but still entertaining You might not like all of them but you should be able to find a few you ll enjoy.


    10. A nice collection of Christmas themed fantasy and sci fiction stories Ken Scholes provided my favorite Some of these stories have been around for decades, such as Gene Wolfe s How the Bishop came Innisfree I know I got the title wrong , or Janet Kagan s The Nutcracker Coup, or The Night that Changed Everything, or Connie Willis Newsletters.


    11. Interesting collection of short stories loosely based on Christmas Winter Solstice type holidays Some of these tales I had encountered elsewhere, but still it is nice to see old fiends in new settings Plenty of dark and uplifting tales The retelling of It s A Wonderful Life was both The Newsletter was a nice comedy piece to end the book.


    12. An interesting collection of stories by science fiction and fantasy writers Many of these I had read before, but I enjoyed revisiting them Connie Willis story is a fun way to end the anthology, and stories by Nina Kiriki Hoffman and Charles deLint were among my favorites.Recommended to anyone who enjoys a good story isn t adverse to fantasy.


    13. This book was ok Like all anthologies some of the stories are good and some are just meh I was a little disappointed that a lot of the stories just seem to have the word Christmas in them and aren t really about Christmas or a winter holiday.


    14. I picked this one up for holiday reading thinking it would be nice and a little frothy and I couldn t have been wrong This is a solid and very diverse collection of stories, all at least tenuously attached to the holiday season but very rarely what you might expect.


    15. An anthology chock full of stories that mean something In other words, not fun And in some cases, the stories have very tenuous connections with seasonal celebrations the editor must have had a hard time finding holiday stories.


    16. An anthology of stories that involve Christmas, but are not necessarily ABOUT Christmas My favorite of the group was If Dragon Mass Eve Be Cold Clear by Ken Scholes It was a nice read during my Christmas holidays.


    17. Excellent collection of sci fi fantasy short stories with connections to various winter holidays.I ll be purchasing this book to read every year in December Fabulous



    18. Several of the stories are only slightly related to Christmas and the season, but there are some absolutely wonderful stories in this collection.


    19. Like most short story collections, this was hit and miss But it was kind of fun to read Christmas stories with a sci fi twist, even if some of them were unsatisfying.




    20. I enjoyed it There were a few stories I didn t care for, but that s to be expected in such a large collection of stories Most were enjoyable, and there were several I loved.




    21. Good collection of Christmas plus other Holiday stories Some of them I d read before, but enjoyed meeting them again.



    22. It disappoints me a little that none of the stories are original to this collection But the selection is interesting.
