And, when I say "holiday", I mean any holiday in the month of December. We celebrate a few of them in my house :) I would love to see Hannukah and Yule stories, etc. as well as Christmas tales!

If you think you can always believe your eyes, and you're sure that what you believe is true, it's time to check your certainties at the door ... and start Edging Past Reality. In this collection of short stories, as you're warned in the introduction, ''the most common and familiar elements of life ... explode into a circus of horror.'' Imagine an inviting, lush meadow that turns shockingly deadly. A mirror that holds more than mere reflections. A trial where your life hangs by a call-in vote.
David Fingerman, a master of the unforeseen and unpredictable, will take you on a number of seemingly ordinary journeys and then smoothly veer off course, surprising you with twists and turns that propel you toward destinations that are not only unexpected, but often terrifying.

Favorite Author in that Genre, and Favorite Book by that Author: I love Vladimir Nabokov, though I haven’t read enough of his prolific writings. For a man whose native tongue is Russian, he puts most of us to shame with his impressive capacity of the English vocabulary. He often concocts plots that revolve around very unique (and fascinating) romantic relationships – the most famous of which is, of course, Lolita. I’d say that’s my favorite of his books.
Give Us One More Favorite Thing Beyond Books: Good food, sleeping and lazy contented days with good company – these are the things that make me happy.
