The Winter Weirderland Bundle - Curated by Sandra Kasturi

Happy holidays! For those of you who long to just hunker down with a good read, a nice fire, and perhaps a heavy cat—all the better to avoid the malls and milling—we have a lovely selection of winter and holiday stories for you!

Join bon vivant Derby Cavendish as he saves the world time and again from holiday horrors like zombifying fruitcakes and evil cheerleaders, in Cocktails at Seven, Apocalypse at Eight.

What could be more delightfully cozy than snuggling up with some Dickensian ghosts in the Valancourt Book of Victorian Christmas Ghost Stories? And you can do it twice with volumes 1 and 2!

It's Mrs. Claus's turn to shine and she is stepping out of Santa's shadow in Mrs. Claus: Not the Fairy Tale They Say. She's a hero, a villain, a spacefarer, a monster, and more!

Welcome to Deathlehem, where Krampus, not Santa, brings the holiday cheer, and family gatherings often turn deadly.

So enter . . . if you dare! A collection of 23 holiday horrors benefiting the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

Fox spirits, snake monsters, and ancient powers abound in the winterscape of Scion of the Fox. It's American Gods meets Princess Mononoke!

In Waking Anastasia, a bloodstained book of poetry contains the soul of one of the royal Romanovs killed during the Bolshevik Revolution. Oh, those Russians!

Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," The Grimoire of Kensington Market is the story of Maggie, guardian of The Grimoire bookstore, which expands and contracts as stories are born... or die.

The Cold War meets Kris Kringle in The Claus Effect as our beleaguered heroes fight Claus and his machine-gun-toting elves!

Eliezer ben-Avraham, wizard, Kabbalist, and kvetch, can help—during Hanukkah, or any other time of year! Making the Rounds is humorous, philosophical, and very weird, as Eliezer demonstrate how important it is to be generous with your gifts, even to the craziest goyim.

Happy weird, wonderful, wintery reading! – Sandra Kasturi
