Eighteen stories of Christmas horror from bestselling, acclaimed authors including Scott Smith, Seanan McGuire, Josh Malerman, Michael Koryta, Sarah Pinborough, and many more.

That there is darkness at the heart of the Yuletide season should not surprise. Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol is filled with scenes that are unsettling. Marley untying the bandage that holds his jaws together. The hideous children--Want and Ignorance--beneath the robe of the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. The heavy ledgers Marley drags by his chains. In the finest versions of this story, the best parts are the terrifying parts.
Bestselling author and editor Christopher Golden shares his love for Christmas horror stories with this anthology of all-new short fiction from some of the most talented and original writers of horror today.

This was a great holiday read! Pour yourself a beverage, turn on a Youtube playlist of Creepy Christmas Music (yes this is a thing... you're welcome!) and enjoy these chilling holiday tales. Any one of these stories would be a perfect ghost story to tell by the fireside on a cozy Christmas eve or mid winter day. I hope to see more holiday horror like this.
