"Holidays are Hell" Book

For books, you still can't beat mass market paperbacks for convenience in size and price. This book, Holidays are Hell, is a compilation of four long-ish "short stories" (probably novella length) in the supernatural chick lit genre, themed around the holidays, of course. Here is Amazon's product description:

"The (black) magical season is here -- and whether it's a solstice séance gone demonically wrong with the incomparable Kim Harrison, a grossly misshapen Christmas with the remarkable Lynsay Sands, a blood-chilling-and-spilling New Year's with the wonderful Marjorie M. Liu, or a super-powered Thanksgiving with the phenomenal Vicki Pettersson, one thing is for certain: in the able hands of these exceptional dark side explorers, the holidays are going to be deliciously hellish!"

Doesn't that sound like fun? If your wife or partner is a reader and is into the likes of Laurell K. Hamilton, Carrie Vaughn, Kim Harrison, or other authors in this genre, this is perfect for her stocking. Trust me, there's nothing more romantic than paying attention to her tastes in reading and other pursuits.

Best of all, a book is a stocking stuffer you can get at the very last minute. And if your local bookstore doesn't have this particular book, ask a salesperson to help you find a holiday-themed romance or urban fantasy paperback. These genres are hot these days -- you'll find something!
