  • Overall rating 3 stars, individual ratings below I was excited for this to download to my Kindle app short stories with different versions of Mrs Claus Yes please With a few exceptions, these stories were mostly just okay only one I couldn t finish When the writing was good, the writers rocked it As for some of the others the writing wasn t terriblebut in these ones, I connect with the ideas they were going for and I was left feeling underwhelmed.A few were only loosely tied to Mrs Claus and had [...]


  • After a lifetime of images of a woman who didn t do much but fatten up her husband and herself must be the plate of cookies I always see her with , it was refreshing to read this Mrs Claus anthology Editor Rhonda Parrish performed well, giving readers many different types of females Clauses These women are not merely takeoffs on the one we have always heard about, but imaginative stories that transform Mrs Claus into someone else.As with any themed collection of stories, most are entertaining, s [...]


  • I m generally not a big holiday story fan, but these stories were original and fun enough that I loved them Each story develops a very different version of Mrs Claus, from a bad ass ice goddess protecting her dimension to a tough Latina just carrying on the family business Some of these Mrs Claus characters are supportive and in love with their Santa Claus, others are in direct conflict with him, or are quietly manipulating him This anthology is a great exploration of a little known side of Chri [...]

  • What a delightful anthology that blends myth, magic and folklore with a healthy dose of reality Each story is a good length for the busy holiday season 14 tales, each with a unique perspective of what Mrs Claus should be All fourteen authors are new to me but they all write enjoyable stories From aliens to witches there are many ideas to make any reader happy A beautiful cover should make this a standout on the bookstore shelf Featuring original short stories by Laura VanArendonk Baugh, C.B Cals [...]


  • I m to the point where I should just find a way to subscribe to Rhonda Parrish s anthologies and give World Weaver Press money every month This is not her first anthology that I ve read and reviewed, and it almost certainly won t be the last.Like the title says, Mrs Claus is not your typical Christmas anthology All of the stories have a female lead most a strong female lead , and a few make no mention at all of ol Saint Nick A couple of the stories felt like the connection to the theme was tenuo [...]


  • Mrs Claus Not the Fairy Tale They Say is an Anthology full of very different stories about the mostly overlooked Mrs Claus I must say I was impressed with this collection and now I rally what some full length stories about a bad ass Mrs Claus I devoured this book like a Christmas turkey What a perfect read for the holidays, and so when you are looking for something different then the cheesy hallmark movies that take over TV Now I will say that I wasn t a fan of all the stories, as with all anth [...]


  • Mrs Claus Not The Fairy Tale They Say Anthology5 star reviewThis Anthology was honestly such an exciting and entertaining read Each short story is unbelievably creative, some were dark and twisted and others were sweet and filled with love These stories are nothing like the tales we ve heard all of our lives Mrs Claus is often forgotten or is only pictured one way, well not any Now s her time to shine in an anthology all about her Most of these stories are wicked and dark, nothing like you would [...]


  • An excellent collection of holiday tales that put Mrs.Claus in the spotlight.lly She s been an afterthought, a woman in the shadows too long.These wide range of tales blend myth, magic, and folklore then twist them with a new take on the woman behind the man in red Most of them showcase that she s the one in charge or even that there is no man , that it was her the entire time.Paranormal, sci fi, fantasy, horror there s a bit of everything in this fantastic collection.The opening story, Wight Ch [...]


  • NOTE I was provided with an e ARC by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Short review Three and a half stars for the collection overall A few good stories, with several that might have benefited from one revision to tighten up, clarify, and sand off the rough edges.This is a collection of short stories all focused on the character of Mrs Claus, and specifically interested in subverting the traditional ideas of her as helpmeet, cookie baker, hot chocolate providing, second fiddle to t [...]


  • Most humans are not capable of love in its purest sense except at Christmas That is when all the goodwill toward men peeks through A quote from Moves Like Jagger by Randi PerrinI enjoyed this anthology so so so much Mrs Claus Not the Fairy Tale They Say is a fantastic collection of short stories about Mrs Claus It has something for everyone humor, fantasy, sci fi, magic, dark stories of insanity and oh so much .It was super easy and quick to read, the total book is only about 220 pages and some [...]


  • I received this book as a Library Thing Early Reviewer.I really liked the idea of stories about Mrs Claus because, as the anthologist pointed out, we rarely get to see anything of Mrs Claus other than the happy homemaker baking cookies taking care of Santa and the elves The stories certainly run the gamut Mrs Claus as alien to Valkyrie to villain Personally, I didn t enjoy Mrs Claus as villain, but that s just me Of the 14 stories there was only one that was so truly awful I couldn t find anythi [...]


  • I m a contributor to this, but I m trying not to be biased.This is a really fun book Mrs Claus is anything but the frumpy old motherly type in the background She s determined and scary and funny and sexy I could do without the sex in one story, but that s my problem, not the story s From a really inventive take on a Council of Holidays to a terrifying fae, from a rock music filled tale to a badass monster hunter, there s something for everyone.


  • A nice collection of stories where the heroine is Mrs Claus A fast read with different settings and and plots but with the constant of a strong woman.

  • Overall, I would say this was an interesting collection of stories, told from a unique perspective that we don t usually get to see in the commercialized world of Christmas It was nice to see a change from the usual alpha male or Santa Claus sweeping in to save the day and falling in love etc My only complaint would be that this was a bit out there on some of them, like way, way out there, that I had some trouble finishing the short story Otherwise it was a great concept and I appreciated that I [...]


  • This anthology caught my eye because there are just not that many stories about Mrs Claus out there I wanted to see how creative people are with her story I found several of the stories in this collection humorous, a few of them bizarre, and a few of them enticing.Wight Christmas by Laura VanArendonk BaughThere is a war on Christmas and Mrs Claus is on the trail of the suspects With some unconventional help of the Skeleton King, they intend to put balance back to the holidays.Christmas Magic by [...]

  • Mrs Claus Not the Fairy Tale They Say edited by Rhonda Parrish was a great anthology that really showcased how different our images of a certain lady in red can be when given the freedom to think beyond the fat guy in a red suit Each of these stories were a unique interpretation of Mrs Claus, making her into everything from a villain to an alien to even a member of the Valkyrie, and like most anthologies while the majority of the stories were good there were some that just needed a little someth [...]
