Trembling With Fear – Christmas 2023 Edition!

Welcome to our special Christmas Edition of Trembling With Fear! Whether you celebrate the holidays or not, there is so much to enjoy about this time of year. Whether it’s the festive lights, the presents, the warm cups of cocoa, the snow or delicious food, the holidays are filled with so much to see and do. That also means that there is so much to inspire new tales and new takes on well-known stories. 

I am always amazed and delighted to see what our writers do with the themes of each holiday, and this edition did not disappoint. We’ve had excellent submissions this year, and we’ve selected the best to be a part of our holiday collection. It was a joy to put together, I hope you enjoy our little gift to you.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Editor, Trembling With Fear

It’s cold outside, so we’ve got some great tales to warm your soul with terror to celebrate the howl-i-days. I hope that you’re having a great time no matter what you celebrate (or don’t celebrate) this season, and I really am thrilled that we’ve got this present of fantastic fiction to deliver to you. For once, I’m feeling a bit more like St. Nick and not Krampus… I’m sure none of you have been naughty this year and deserve presents instead, right?

Have a great one, and I truly hope that you enjoy all of the stories that have been submitted for your enjoyment! (Remember, if you love a story, give the gift of thanks to the author in either comments or on social media.)
