Warming up the Rocket Sledge

I’ve been a little quiet lately.

Partly that’s because I’ve been grading papers (ah, teaching!) or sick (ah, viruses!), but it’s also because I’ve been finishing compiling the stories for this year’s Spec The Halls charity anthology.

It’s on schedule to come out All Saint’s Day, and will only be available for a limited time.  Inspiring stories, dark stories, funny stories, and sad stories – all aspects of the winter holidays1 are going to be in here. It’ll be a heck of a volume, folks, and all proceeds will go to support Heifer International.

Want to be in next year’s volume?  Want to win cash prizes?  Want to share your speculative holiday fiction with the internet?

Stop by the Spec The Halls site to follow our submission guidelines!

1 Yes, winter holidays, regardless of religion, planet, or plane of existence.
