"...brain-bending, strange, and wonderful...perfect for taking your mind off holiday stresses...Grab a copy for yourself, and think about yourbook-obsessed friends as well." -Fan Girl Nation

"The holidays plus spec-fic... yes please! ... Joy to the Worlds did not disappoint! The bad news is, I want more! Way more. This book wasunlike any other holiday collection out there, and that's why I lovedit. Is it Christmas yet?" -Library Nerdette

"...clever and evocative of the mystery and thrill of Christmas by turnscreepy and sometimes amusing. Ranging from dark dystopian worlds tocomedic retro-futures, four diverse writers find new ways to combinethese disparate worlds into something anyone will enjoy." -Geek Syndicate

"Joy to the Worlds is a wide-ranging mixture of SF, Fantasy and Horror that made me wish for snowy weather and a good hot drink. [It] reminded me of Connie Willis's collection Miracle and Other Christmas Stories.

"...a spunky alternative to traditional holiday fare...If you're a dystopian at heart, Joy to the Worlds may be the remedy for you." -Barbara McMichael, The Bellingham Herald

About the Author

National bestselling authorMaia Chance writes historical mysteries that are rife with absurd predicaments and romantic adventure. She is the author ofSnow White Red-Handed,Cinderella Six Feet Under, andCome Hell or Highball. 2016 titles includeBeauty, Beast, and Belladonna andTeetotaled. Maia lives in Bellingham, WA, where she shakes a killer martini, grows a mean radish, and bakes mocha bundts to die for.

Janine A. Southard is the IPPY award-winning author ofQueen & Commander (and other books inThe Hive Queen Saga). She lives in Seattle, WA, where she writes speculative fiction novels, novellas, and short stories...and reads them aloud to her cat.

Raven Oak is the award-winning and bestselling author of the fantasy novelAmaskan's Blood, the sci-fi novellaClass-M Exile, and the upcoming space operaThe Eldest Silence. She spent most of her K-12 education doodling stories and 500 page monstrosities that are forever locked away in a filing cabinet. When she's not writing, she's getting her game on with tabletop games, indulging in cartography, or staring at the ocean. She lives in the Seattle area with her husband, and their three kitties who enjoy lounging across the keyboard when writing deadlines approach.

Depending on the hour,G. Clemans might be writing about a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by lightning storms, teaching semiotics to twenty-year-olds, or squinting at art in a gallery. A founding instructor of Critical & Contextual Studies at Cornish College of the Arts, Clemans regularly contributes art criticism toThe Seattle Times.
