Many thanks to agentxpndble, magicwondershow, maidoforange, gbsteve, thepirateship, arymetore and witchcat07, dement1a, griffith_gwyn, and faramirgirl for the lovely cards and/or packages. Each of you brightened my Christmas season.

Happy birthday to primsong; may you have a fantastic day and wonderful year to come!

Happy (belated) Winter Solstice wishes to those of you who celebrate! To my friends celebrating Hanukkah, I wish a very happy Hanukkah to you! And on this Christmas Eve, I wish a Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate the holiday.


* The all-holiday-themed episode of the StarShipSofa Science Fiction Audio Magazine podcast, "Aural Delights No. 56," is now available. It includes my reading of "A Christmas Tale" by David C. Kopaska-Merkel. You can download it here, listen to it streaming here, or get it via iTunes under "StarShipSofa." I hope you enjoy this special holiday show!

For my quotes of the day, I thought I would share a few fun verses that H.P. Lovecraft sent in his holiday cards to his friends:

To Lillian D. Clark and C.W. Smith
As Saturnalian days draw near
To mark the climax of the year,
And green-drap'd temples glimmer bright
With waxen tapers' sacred light;
As Phoebus draws his heav'nly rein
And turns his coursers north again,
I trust that you may richly share
In ev'ry boon the gods prepare!


To Sonia H. Greene
Once more the ancient feast returns,
And the bright hearth domestic burns
With Yuletide's added blaze;
So, too, may all your joys increase
Midst floods of mem'ry, love, and peace,
And dreams of Halcyon days.


To Unknown
In wishing Christmas joys for you,
I don't know where to stop, that's true;
But sure, to stop were useless pains,
Since not a bound my wish restrains!
