'Tis the Season

A Novella by

Call me childish, but I love all the nonsense - the snow, the trees, the tinsel, the turkey. I love presents. I love carols and cheesy songs. I just love Christmas .'It would be a dream come true to be able to celebrate Christmas properly: to wake up to a Stocking , visit Santa and open Presents around the Christmas Tree .

But this is a luxury reserved for those with shares in YuleCo - controllers of this joyful season - who don't agree that it's a holiday for one and all.

In this short story, 'Tis the Season, which also features in the collection Looking for Jake and Other Stories, China Mieville's astonishing imagination allows us a glimpse of how a dystopian Christmas might be.
