A Christmas feeling fantasy novel pick

Any suggestions on that?

I can only think of a Christmas carol
I'm Saloninus, by the way. And I tell lies, from time to time. Which goes to prove the old rule; never entirely trust a man who talks about himself in the third person.

Not Christmas, but take a look at The Just City by Jo Walton. Arry gave it 5 stars on her blog. It looks interesting to me.

Sad there isn't a book about someone with magical powers trying to spread seasonal good will across the land called Jingle Spells.

I want Stephen King to do something about this!

Well, his son did write books (a novel and a graphic novel) that feature a magical Rolls Royce Wraith that can take kids to Christmasland. Does that count?

Ahhhh I forgot about NOS4R2 (NOS4A2 in US)! That should be the December Book Club pick!

Horror really doesn't do that well around here unfortunately. We did read Horns for book club a couple years ago, and participation was pretty low. As much as I love NOS4A2, you'd probably get more participation/discussion with a Fantasy book.
