Summary (From the publisher):

Christmas has always been a time of wonder, but in the hands of talented sf and fantasy writers such as Charles de Lint, Roger Zelazny, and Patricia A. McKillip, it becomes even more magical. Yet whether in a traditional celebration among the ruins of a lost civilization on a distant planet (Jack McDevitt's "Midnight Clear") or a frantic holiday battle against monsters taking over futuristic London (Joan Aiken's "Cockatrice Boys"), the spirit remains. Especially effective are de Lint's "Pal o' Mine," a haunting tale of friendship; Catherine Asaro's "Dance in Blue," the story of a ballerina and her future stepson's trials in a virtual reality mansion; and Dave Wolverton's "My Favorite Christmas," a time-travel fantasy. In all, a well-balanced collection with contents ranging from hard science stories to fantastic fables--one that is sure to herald the season for thoughtful sf readers.
