Ho - Ho - Bang!

TO GET YOU in the Christmas mood, here are a few holiday-themed stories that have proven popular with ONTOS readers:

(1) "Santa Thumbs a Ride" by Johnston McCulley (HERE). This one drifts into "impossible crime" territory.
(2) "Death Plays Santa Claus" also by Johnston McCulley (HERE). Interesting how Nero Wolfe's creator had the same idea.
(3) "The Scorpion's Thumb" by Ellery Queen (HERE). A story that started life as a radio play.

Unless otherwise noted, all bibliographical data are derived from The FictionMags Index created by William G. Contento & edited by Phil Stephensen-Payne.
