The Ghosts of Christmas
Christmas is a fantastic holiday.
From ghosts appearing in "A
Christmas Carol" to the idea that a fat guy in a red suit could drive a
flying sleigh and somehow hop down everyone's chimney on earth in one
night, most stories about Christmas include things that are inherently
fantastic. Hey, Santa even has elves, though they aren't the Tolkien
type with longbows in their hands and stars in their eyes.
mainstream and classic holiday stories are fantastical, from Dickens to
the latest movie, sci-fi and fantasy authors have long taken Christmas
to even stranger places. Look around, and you'll find speculative
fiction Christmas collections all over the place. Santa could turn up
as a vampire or a robot, a time traveler or a wizard.
is a time for sci-fi and fantasy. It is a time when the ghosts of the
past, present, and future gather in authors' minds and inspire odd and
Merry Christmas. Live Long and Prosper!
Thanks, S4. I just wanted to make a brief announcement. Quantum News is now up again-- the input form was broken, which is why the news was so old before. If anyone has sci-fi or fantasy news, go ahead and post it. We'll probably mention it in the next Museletter as well.
We shamelessly accept handouts!
Give generously to the United Wa - uh, we mean Quantum Muse. It keeps Mike off the streets from scaring small children and the Web Goddess from spray painting Town Hall - again.
