A Holiday Offering, part the third

An Armory of SwordsIn honor of the holidays, and of Fred Saberhagen who first bought the story, my fantasy novella “Glad Yule” is appearing on Book View Cafe in three parts. Parts 1 and 2 are on my bookshelf, and part 3 is available today at Book View Cafe.

I have two small gifts for readers today: a recipe, and a free calendar.

For those who would like to get in the medieval mood, here’s my recipe for mulled wine:

Combine in a stout pot over a cheerful (medium) flame:

1 bottle red wine

1.5 cups orange juice or apple cider

4 whole cloves

10 whole allspice

1 cinnamon stick

Float a couple of orange slices in it for a festive look. To be really festive, punch the cloves into the orange skins. Heat until simmering, serve in nice mugs you can wrap your hands around to warm them.

And a final treat: a free year-at-a-glance calendar for 2009. Just send me your mailing address on my ælven calendar page.

Happy Holidays to all!
