A Guide for Connie’s Holiday Stories

miraclehbHi, everybody! Christmas is bearing down on us, and because you all have so much time to read during the holidays, Lee thought you might like a list of my Christmas short stories. For a long time, I’ve written Christmas stories for Asimov’s, although I wasn’t terribly regular about it during the years I was writing Blackout/All Clear. Here it is. (I added “Fire Watch” because it takes place in December of 1940, “A Little Moonshine” because it’s set on New Year’s Eve, and “Winter’s Tale” because it takes place in the winter. Doh. And chunks of Blackout and All Clear take place at Christmas.)

Some of these stories are up on line, and a lot of them are in the collection of my Christmas stories, Miracle and Other Christmas Stories. Several others are available as very skinny books from Subterranean Press, and some are in The Winds of Marble Arch, my big collection from Subterranean Press. My story “Just Like the Ones We Used to Know…” was made into a CBS TV Christmas movie called Snow Wonder, which starred Mary Tyler Moore.

snowwonderSnow Wonder – The CBS TV Movie aired once on CBS in 2005 and has not turned up anywhere else that has been noted.  For whatever reason, it is not being including in any cable channel’s annual deluge of Christmas movies.  I have found some You Tube clips of the movie posted by a fan of the actress Poppy Montgomery.  Clip 1 includes the opening credits while Clip 2 and Clip 3 have more scenes from the movie.
