Come with me into the shot room in this new collection of short stories. Yes, the nurse is waiting with a rusty needle ["This Won't Hurt" and "The Flu Shot"]. Next, step outside and witness the great snowblower race ["Snow in Your Eye"]. From there it's cops and robbers on ice. Well, one cop and one robber, a story that takes you to a place you never expected ["Essence"].

These are tales to be read by the fire, so I include two gifts, a ghost story ["The Bridge"] and a Christmas story ["Lights and Sirens for Santa"].

For the finish, a novella ["For Want of a Hand"], a powerful story of one man's journey back from an accident that almost took his life.
