About Firefly Anthology

The chills are creeping up your neck, the unknown watch you from a breath away, and the long dead seem closer than ever…
In the modern age, our five senses are constantly bombarded by the world around us: flashing screens, loud noises, barking, yelling, horn honking, billboards, bustling crowds, arrogant bosses, and the constant hustle of a busy schedule. It's hard to even think of having a moment alone.
But it is when we are alone, that our sixth sense has a chance to surface. I invite you to take a moment, or two, for yourself to sit down, dim the lights and spend some time with the strange and the weird. Sift through some stories that will have you looking into dark corners, listening to the creeks of the floor, and wondering if the movement of your curtain is the work of something other than a breeze.

Curl up by the fire with a cup of hot cocoa to read this heart warming collection of Christmas tales! From a story set in Australia at Christmas, to one about a woman who finds her true love with santa, and a few stories that remind you that you can over come anything in life with love, this book of 12 Christmas stories is a great addition for anyone who loves the holidays, and the paperback version (available at Amazon/B&N etc) would be a great stocking stuffer!

I won this copy in one of the fun online events set up through FireFlyand Wisp, and I will absolutely be buying the print version ina few weeks. I must have this on my bookshelf within easy reach, as it will be read again next holiday season.It will become a tradition!
The cover art was lovely and Christmasy, with a great feel that set the tone for the collection. There were twelve stories, most were a little longer than a standard anthology, but all were great, fast reads, very smooth writing, flawless editing. Now for the stories!
I cried three or four times, this is the level of talent involved, able to create a story with characters that you are invested in almost instantly. There was a character with cervical cancer, one in a wheelchair, a sick child, a woman that had breast cancer, several had suffered terrible loss of love and family. These things are so devastating, it's hard to read about them. But they were never presented in a negative fashion, the stories were about overcoming lonliness, bitterness, anger and finding love in the strangest places. The holiday theme was present throughout, and several had wonderful twist ending I didn't see coming.
It's a colleection I'd be proud to give as gifts to family and close friends, anyone who appreciates heart-warming, inspiring stories of loss, pain, joy and love.
I cannot choose a favorite, but Nothing's Terminal really left me a range of emotions. I'm thinking of reading it again tonight! I have a bit of a crush on Captain Jack (not THAT one, ha!)
A very beautiful anthology collection, perfect for this time of year. Highly recommended!
