Weird Santa & other Xmas Tales is magic realism with a dash of erotic spiciness. The ten independent stories in this collection range from “A Doggie’s Tale,” a boy-and-his-dog story appropriate for children, to “Never Too Old, Never Too Late” in which an old babushka recounts her Christmases in the Old Country. After receiving her magic gingerbread cookies, Ana’s young American friends, two couples, discover the depth of their passion for each other on a snowy Christmas Eve.
