Anthologies are like holiday smorgasbords, where you can nibble all day long and try a little of everything. When life is stressful and you don't have a lot of time, short stories and novellas are perfect mini-vacations to escape with. Therefore, anthologies make great gifts for friends, family, and you. Here are four recommendations.

Anthology Gift #2: The Good Cheer Holiday Bundle

Covers of 10 stories in the Good Holiday Cheer anthology that makes a great giftStory Bundles are a different kind of anthology. They're curated, limited-edition, themed collections with a base price, plus add-on extras if you want more stories. You can ask some of your purchase price to support their charity. And bonus — they have a great “this is a gift” option, too. Check this one out soon before it turns to fairy dust.

Curator Dean Wesley Smith says, “When putting this Good Holiday Cheer Bundle together, I did my best to find not only great novels set around the holiday season, but a lot of short stories as well. After all, we are all busy in one way or another during this time of year, and sometimes we have time for a longer escape, sometimes we need just a short respite. Or something in between.” Read more about the 10 books in the bundle, and make sure to click on each cover for a synopsis, reviews, and preview of each book. You'll find paranormal romance, light mystery, silly humor, and more. Their worthy charity is AbleGamers, an organization that provides assistive equipment to enable people with disabilities so they can enjoy video games.

The anthology has 7 full-length novels that explore the future without forgetting that the most dangerous battles will always be within the human heart. Aliens, AI, cyborgs, galactic empires, space battles, and romance…you’ll find them all here, along with heroines and heroes you’ll cheer for.
