A ghost story for Christmas

As mentioned yesterday, today is National Short Story day, and genre fans are in for something of an aural treat. Over at Dark Fiction Magazine, their Twelve Days of Christmas audio anthology is now available and features a dozen excellent shorts by a dozen excellent writers. Each story takes a line from the traditional Christmas carol The Twelve Days of Christmas, and the end result is rather splendid. Get your ears over there, pronto!

Meanwhile, here’s my own Christmas ghost story, Nine Ladies Dancing, read by Emma Newman. Emma is a writer and voice artist, and her first novel, the post-apocalyptic Twenty Years Later, is due from Dystopia Press in 2011. Emma’s website is Post-Apocalyptic Publishing, and she can be found on Twitter as @emapocalyptic.

I hope you enjoy the story, and Emma’s narration, and we’d love to hear your feedback. Please feel free to share the link or the file.

Merry Christmas!
