What is the Calendar of Short Stories?

Each story falls in one of three genres:

  • Mistletoe Moments features romance stories set during the winter holiday season.
  • A Weird Holiday Season features stories about winter holidays that are unusual or just plain weird.
  • Cold-Blooded Christmas features crime stories set during the winter holiday season.

Here’s how it works:

Every day, after Thanksgiving and running until the New Year, you will get an original short story sent to you (or the recipient of your choice) via email.

Each story is accompanied by an introduction in which award-winning editor Kristine Kathryn Rusch will tell you which kind of story you have, be it a A Weird Holiday Season story or a darker Cold-Blooded Christmas crime story or a Mistletoe Moments romance.

You will get each story in ebook format (epub and mobi), so you can read them daily on your own device, anywhere, anytime you choose. Or you can store them up and binge on a weekend.

Your choice.

For those who subscribe on or after November 25, your subscription will begin on the Monday following your purchase. We will also send an email containing all of the stories that you missed so far in one bulk email on that same Monday.

For those who subscribe on or after December 27, all of the stories will be delivered to you in a single email on January 3.

As an added bonus, all subscribers will receive The Holiday Spectacular #3 ebook compilation, which includes all 38 stories and introductions. The compilation volume will be released in July 2022.

Missed last year’s Holiday Spectacular?

We’ve got you covered.
The Holiday Spectacular #2 offers readers a chance to recreate that experience and read all of those stories in one volume—exactly as they were originally presented during the holiday season.
