Whitstead, Harvest 1845
Darkness threatens Whitstead as autumn comes. Evil forces are on the move against the town as a whole, but also individual hearts and minds. As Halloween approaches, the veil between worlds thins and demons, vampires, dangerous fae, and madmen are not the only threat—spirits and ghosts loom as well.
Love is lost and won. An exiled heir seeks help from dragons. An ancient guardian faces invading peril. Aliens seek lost equipment. A lady helps a ghost find peace. A mother searches for her lost daughter. A fawn faces defeat and a terrible quest. A faerie queen visits an old friend. And a cowardly boy must learn the power of faith and hope.
Sacrifice and redemption. The value of children. Injustice confronted. Loss and despair. The light of hope. Peace despite adversity as bounty and wonder touch Whitstead.
Thirty stories of adventure, humor, loneliness and family, myth and legend. From authors David Wayne Landrum, Laura Nelson Selinsky, Beka Gremikova, Pam Halter, Dana Bell, Lauren Salisbury, Melinda K. Busch, and many more.
From Abigail Falanga and Sarah Falanga, editors of the best-selling Whitstead Christmastide – a Speculative Anthology.
There has always been something a little otherworldly about the village of Whitstead; there are thin places, where the ordinary world touches on the realms of fairies, ghosts, and darkness. And this year, during the holy season of Christmas, various forces—dragons, demons, fae, dreams, and snow—act on the denizens of the town.
A dryad is on a mission to free something trapped in a mirror. A little girl prays for a Christmas pudding. A blind peddler sings in the town square. A gnome prepares for the mission of a lifetime. An alien spaceship crash-lands in the snow… And angels are on the move.
Charity and family love, healing and new purpose, visions and song, all awaken in the season celebrating the Greatest Gift.
Twenty-five stories of love and loss, adventure and homecoming, myth and legend, the chill of snow and the warmth of the Christmas fire. From authors.
Across the street, Claudia Delacorte works day and night in her abusive stepfather’s store. She’ll do anything to assure her beloved half-sisters have a happy and safe future, even sacrifice her own happiness. So when the new pastor shows interest in her, she scoffs at his naïve overtures—she doesn’t have time for love. Or Christmas.
But when a series of crimes throw the neighborhood into turmoil, Claudia becomes an easy target. During a robbery gone horribly wrong, Nick and Claudia must work together to save her sisters, the store, and each other. Will this tragedy restore hope to their community? Or will they lose everything they’ve fought so hard to keep?
