    Fairy tales told around the fire on Christmas Eve—including “The Light Princess,” “The Shadows,” “The Golden Key,” and “The Giant’s Heart.”   Reminiscent of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, MacDonald’s attempt to package a collection of short stories in the guise of a novel is built around a group of snowbound travelers attempting to pass the time in a country house by sharing stories in hopes of distracting young Adela Cathcart from her illness. Early in his career, MacDonald was trying different genres and storytelling methods, and this is a prime example of his creative experimentation. First published in 1865, the included stories changed with a new edition in 1882. Some of MacDonald’s well-known short stories made their first appearance in one of the two editions. This new publication from Michael Phillips includes the best from both original editions.

    Outskirts never die... 
    After narrowly escaping death, Holly is back on the streets in a quest to find the elusive pico. Discovering what's on the quantum drive - the same one the outskirts had been willing to kill for - is priority number one. Daze is recovering, and forgiving the kid was easier than she thought it would be. The cranky outskirt is another story. 
    It doesn't take Holly long to discover that Tandor's crew hasn't been obliterated, and are actively seeking retribution. They're recruiting Northerners, but she's found one who's willing to spill. It's a good thing, too, since things are starting to get strange. On the hunt, she stumbles on an old man dressed in a burial cloth, and witnesses a seeker wandering the streets where it shouldn't be. 
    But after a friend gets caught up in the fray, Holly's hand is forced. She has to act fast to procure the information she needs. But what she learns is harrowing. The outskirts aren't just taking over the city - they're infecting people with Plush, and the quantum drive may hold the only key. In order to save lives, she's must find that pico. The only problem is, it might be too late.
