This is one of my favorite Christmas stories. "The Gift of the Magi" by O. Henry. I hope you enjoy.
If you’re looking for a delightful little Halloween treat, check out my urban fantasy story, Magick Mirror. Originally written for a Halloween anthology and inspired by Super Nintendo RPGs, it takes place in high school, where our hero’s unusual attire on the the school bus on Halloween morning is mistaken for a costume.
And he can’t tell anyone, because the game his life has become now has consequences.
Maybe reading that will help keep your hand out of the candy jar—at least for a little while.
Here’s a little more about the story…
When was the last time a character in a video game stepped out of your TV?
Anders is just an ordinary high school teenager suffering from a painful breakup and trying to drown his sorrows in video games. But when a rare Super Nintendo RPG he bought at the flea market comes to life, he is sent on an extraordinary quest.
A wizard grants him the power of the Magick Mirror. But is that enough? Does Anders have the heart of a true hero?
Thought I would share the cover of my February release ahead of time for a change.
