A Christmas Anthology

Edited by Simon Danes


Price: £9.95
Publisher:St Mark's Press
Published:Summer 2011
The description on the cover shows that this title contains short stories, poetry and seasonal customs and facts, and together they make for an entertaining read, highly suitable for a gift that can be dipped into at random.
I had never thought ‘Whatever Became of Tiny Tim?’ and the John Mortimer story was somewhat of a shock! Neither that nor the Dickens and Trollope stories were familiar to me although the authors are favourites of mine.
Many of the poems gave a warm feeling of familiarity, but not all, and the ‘customs and facts’ contained some real eye-openers. I enjoyed it and the fact that £1 from each copy sold goes to Traidcraft should be an extra incentive to buy it for yourself and for gifts.
