Each story falls in one of three genres:

  • Winter Holidays stories focus around holidays celebrated in winter that are not Christmas.
  • Bloody Christmas stories feature wonderfully dark and disturbing tales of crime.
  • Joyous Christmas stories have every kind of happy ending you could want, and a few you’ve never imagined before.

Here’s how it works:

Every day, starting on November 28, 2019, and running through January 1, 2020, 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 Joyous Christmas story or a darker Bloody Christmas mystery or a Winter Holiday tale.

You will get each story in ebook format (epub, mobi, pdf), 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 28, 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 6.

As an added bonus, all subscribers will receive the WMG Holiday Spectacular 2019 ebook compilation, which includes all 35 stories and introductions. The compilation volume will be released in July 2020.
