A Gift of Murder is an exciting collection of short stories based on Christmas but these stories are not your usual holiday tales. Nineteen authors have contributed their work to this anthology. Each author has taken a different approach and all the stories make for interesting reading. John M. Floyd has done a great job of editing. Tony Burton created the stunning cover.
The book even contains a story entitled “The Werewolf’s Christmas” by Bill Crider. Peg Herring takes a different approach to Christmas with “The Gift of the Margi”. Stefanie Lazer tells of a mother’s ordeal trying to locate “the hottest toy of the season”.
This is the fourth year that Wolfmont has published an
anthology to benefit Toys for Tots and this is the best year yet. The
book will make a wonderful gift for any friend that enjoys reading.
