Stories for the Cold of Winter
Kristine Kathryn Rusch
Light-hearted holiday stories abound, but when the days turn cold and bracing, darker tales tempt the senses. This collection of five stories from award-winning and bestselling master of short fiction Kristine Kathryn Rusch fits that bill.
All centered on the winter holidays, Stories for the Cold of Winter features four crime stories: “The Thanksgiving After,” a suspense story set on Black Friday (more or less); “Frank’s Corner Bar,” a Christmas day story set in a neighborhood bar during an ice storm; “Resolution,” which follows an assassin trying to change her life with the new year; and “Other People’s Stupidity,” which focuses on the legal profession at year’s end.
The fifth offering, “Vigil,” offers a tale of quiet dedication to lives lost.
So, stoke the fire and let these tales entertain on a cold winter’s night.
“[Rusch’s] short fiction is golden.”
