Summary

CHRISTMAS WISHES - A Comedy Holiday Short 
 
All Alex wanted was a quiet night in. 
Hot cocoa, marshmallow, was that such a sin? 
When out in the garden, there arose such a noise. 
Santa?  Reindeer?  A sleigh full of toys? 
Her help is required, to steal all the presents. 
The adventure before her, really unpleasant. 
Though there's one silver lining, at the end of this feat. 
The gift of a lifetime, a treat that's quite sweet!

    From Harlan Ellison, whom the Washington Post regards as a “lyric poet, satirist, explorer of odd psychological corners, and purveyor of pure horror and black comedy,” comes Strange Wine. Discover among these tales the spirits of executed Nazi war criminals who walk Manhattan streets; the damned soul of a murderess escaped from hell; gremlins writing the fantasies of a gone‑dry writer; and the exquisite Dr. D’arque Angel, who deals her patients doses of death. But even more so, discover the clarity of voice and courage of conviction of an author who feels passionately, who thinks deeply, and who writes like a locomotive barreling through a tornado.

    Every Picture Inspires A Story is a collection of twenty-one short stories, all of which have been inspired by (but are not based on) a particular painting. From David Hockney’s Pool And Steps to Van Gogh’s Two Peasant Women Digging Potatoes, the stories are as diverse as the artists’ brush strokes. Most of the tales have been set within the time frame of when the individual painting was created.  
    Whilst the featured paintings are fundamental as they have triggered the author’s imagination, they are by no means necessary for the reader’s understanding or enjoyment of these varied and colourful tales depicting contemporaneous adventures ranging from the 16th to the 21st century. 
    This is H A Howe’s third collection of short stories and lacks none of her unique style that always manages to captivate, and often surprises the reader with unexpected twists
