Here’s a look at the next two stories:
“Troll, the Ancient Yuletide Carol” by Michael D. Young
On the first of November at the stroke of midnight, Ms. Christie Carole flung open to the doors to the Carol Conservatory. “O, come all ye faithful!” she called in a cherry voice. “Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat!”
From within, a chorus of carols sprang to life with the tinkling of jingle bells and refrains of “Fa, la, la, la, la…”
“Isn’t it supposed to be ‘I heard the bells on Christmas day’” asked the carol bearing the same name. “They haven’t even stuffed the turkeys yet.”
“You better not pout,” Ms. Carole said with a stern look. “The radio will need you all before long, and you must be warmed up and ready to go.”
When Ms. Carole had awoken the last of the sleepy carols, Silent Night and Away in a Manger, she glanced in the cupboard and noticed a carol she had never seen before in the far back corner. “Bring a torch, Jennette Isabella.”
The carol she had named stepped into the room, lighting every corner of it. There in the cupboard sat an old, wrinkled carol, blinking and rubbing his eyes.
Ms. Carole turned to the carol next to her and asked, “Yonder carol, who is he? Where and what his dwelling?”
When the carol she had asked shrugged, the old carol answered for himself. “My name is Troll—Troll, the Ancient Yuletide Carol.”
And here a look of one of the prizes:
