We are pleased to bring you the cover and table of contents for our last book of 2017: MRS. CLAUS: NOT THE FAIRY TALE THEY SAY, an anthology of Christmas tales that explore who Mrs. Claus is and what her role is on Christmas Eve. These stories range from fantasy to steampunk to sci-fi, and from funny to bittersweet. MRS. CLAUS: NOT THE FAIRY TALE THEY SAY, edited by Rhonda Parrish, will be available in both ebook and paperback on November 28, 2017. Want to see the cover and the table of contents? Look below!
When you think of Mrs. Claus, do you imagine a quiet North Pole homebody who finds complete fulfillment in baking cookies, petting reindeer and crafting toys alongside elves? How about a magic-wielding ice goddess, or a tough-as-nails Valkyrie? Or maybe an ancient fae of dubious intentions, or a well-meaning witch? Could Mrs. Claus be a cigar-smoking Latina, or a crash-landed alien? Within these pages Mrs. Claus is a hero, a villain, a mother, a spacefarer, a monster hunter, and more. The only thing she decidedly is not, is a sidekick.
