They say good things come to those who wait. Or almost die in the process, as the case may be. Truly, hunger is the most savory of spices, and anticipation the greatest complement to pleasure. Drawn from the pages of Danse Macabre ~ An Online Literary Magazine™ WEIHNACHTSMARKT is your supreme buffet of feiertagsgeschichten (holiday stories) et poésie saisonnière (seasonal poetry). Lovers of noir coloratura will groan under the weight of bookish delights from around the globe and beyond the grave, the finest fare on the literary web: prose plum puddings spiced with nutmeg and rum, hearty portions of DM’s Prix de Noël winners topped with poetic sprigs of holly, hidden holiday crackers filled with mystery and caprice, flurries of powdered sugar, perhaps the faintest whiff of classical sulphur and that tang of bitter almond…ach du liebe, what a carve-up! Let no anthology reader in your macabrely circles go without WEIHNACHTSMARKT this holiday season!

A Danse Macabre Holiday Anthology
is one of those collections you rarely seem to stumble upon. It is a marvelous journey deep into the heart of literary winter. Contemporary writers of poetry and prose huddle beside hidden gems of the past, blending into the stark surroundings seamlessly. Weihnachtsmarkt reaches to the far corners of the globe and spans over two centuries of holiday writing. Each poem woven and tale spun resonates profoundly – with humour, poignancy, and the macabre – in concert with Ezra Pound:
Winter is icummen in, Lhude sing Goddamm.
