Joy to the Worlds

What do you get when you take the magic of the holidays and put it in the hands of four talented mystery and speculative fiction authors? A mobster Santa, time-travelling detectives, eerie bell spirits, and more! In Joy to the Worlds, a new collection of short, holiday-themed mystery and speculative fiction, Maia Chance, Janine A. Southard, Raven Oak, and G. Clemans will take the holidays to places you've never followed them before. For a glimpse into its enchanting mix of mystery, humor, fantasy, folklore, and unexpected journeys across time and space, join us for this special holiday reading and signing with all four authors.


No Image Available National bestselling author Maia Chance writes historical mysteries that are rife with absurd predicaments and romantic adventure. She is the author of Snow White Red-Handed, Cinderella Six Feet Under, and Come Hell or Highball. 2016 titles include Beauty, Beast, and Belladonna and Teetotaled.

Janine A. Southard is the IPPY award-winning author of Queen & Commander (and other books in The Hive Queen Saga). She lives in Seattle, WA, where she writes speculative fiction novels, novellas, and short stories...and reads them aloud to her cat.

Raven Oak is the author of the bestselling fantasy novel Amaskans Blood, the bestselling sci-fi novella Class-M Exile, and the upcoming space opera The Eldest Silence. She spent most of her K-12 education doodling stories and 500 page monstrosities that are forever locked away in a filing cabinet. When shes not writing, shes getting her game on with tabletop games, indulging in cartography, or staring at the ocean. She lives in Seattle, WA with her husband, and their three kitties who enjoy lounging across the keyboard when writing deadlines approach.

Depending on the hour, G. Clemans might be writing about a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by lightning storms, teaching semiotics to twenty-year-olds, or squinting at art in a gallery. A founding instructor of Critical & Contextual Studies at Cornish College of the Arts, Clemans regularly contributes art criticism to The Seattle Times. Clemans has only recently embarked on the wild ride of writing fiction. Inspired by her two daughters, she crafts real-world fantasies for young adults—stories that intermingle historical research with made-up mythologies.
