Christmas is a time of busyness, stress, overspending, and overeating. It's easy to become overwhelmed by the holiday, and some adults even learn to dread its approach. But what if this wasn't so? Christmas is a magical time for children; what if it regained that magic for adults as well? Winter Stories is a collection of cheerful holiday stories intended to inspire happiness. In the story of Harry Fairbanks, for instance, his divorce is imminent. He's on his way home to tell his wife it's over when "Santa Facilitator" Charles E. Puck appears and gives him a magic Santa hat that changes his viewpoint on everything, including the love of his wife. and then there's Franklin Doyle, who in a life crisis spies a magical website originating from London, England--and decides to make a visit. A mystical winter fog comes up, and Doyle is transported back in time to hang out with Ebenezer Scrooge and old Mr. Fezziwig. Each of the 10 stories in this collection is written with the joyous winter season in mind--a time of hope and peace. Smile, forget the stresses of life, and find your joy.

In Winter Stories, Norwegian author Ingrid H. Rishøi gives us three contemporary tales about personal resilience in the face of adversity. We meet a teenager on the run from social services with her younger half-sister and half-brother in tow; a young single mother struggling to provide adequately for her daughter; and an ex-convict striving to overcome personal shortcomings and build a relationship with his son. Driven by a fundamental need to secure and protect relationships with loved ones, Rishøi's characters stumble, fall, and climb to their feet again--even though the deck inevitably seems to be stacked against them. Seemingly minor snags in their best-laid plans carry the risk of undermining everything with potentially life-altering consequences. What these stories illustrate, however, is how small victories and the unexpected compassion of virtual strangers can have a far-reaching and profound impact. With empathy and sensitivity, the poetic sensibility of Rishøi's literary voice beautifully illuminates the fragile vulnerability of the human condition. In a time when the level of skepticism and distrust between people is rising, these stories remind us of the humanity that unites us all.

Ten classic stories from the master of Hindi literature Nearly a century after they were written, Premchand’s numerous short stories, novels and plays, written both in Hindi and Urdu, continue to be a mirror to Indian society and its traditions. A Winter’s Night and Other Stories brings together, for young readers, some of his most powerful short stories. This is a world inhabited by people like Halku, forced to spend the bitterly cold winter night in the open, without a blanket; Kaki, the old invalid aunt, ill-treated by her own relatives; and Shankar, reduced to being a bonded labour for the sake of a handful of wheat. Premchand describes their plights with unflinching honesty. Yet all is not hopeless in this world. There is also little Hamid, who buys tongs for his old grandmother rather than toys for himself; Ladli, who saves her share of puris for her blind aunt; and Big Brother, trying in vain to remember the strange names of English kings and queens. Greed, dishonesty, cruelty abound in this world, as do kindness, bravery and humour. These ten stories are an ideal introduction to Premchand and his concerns and ideas that remain relevant to this day.
