Summary (From the publisher):

Gene Wolfe's world is nothing like our own... It is bizarre and fantastical, grotesque and wonder-filled. It is a world of prowling houses, pregnant cars, space-age slaves and toys that are more than life-like. It is a world of shadows and unexceptional violence where man's technological fantasies have surpassed his dreams.

From this world comes a story for every holiday from New Year's Eve to Christmas Day - each marked by Gene Wolfe's unique imagination. And each, of course, about a world nothing like our own.
