Winter Tales Book

Our next show is Winter Tales, but I know you still might not be ready to talk about the upcoming holidays yet... I know I'm not. So instead I thought I'd take a minute to ask for your help with a little project we're working on.

We're thinking about putting together a Winter Tales anthology (if we can get permission from the authors, that is). How would you feel about us putting together a Best of Winter Tales book in honor of our 10th anniversary? And if so, what stories do you think we should include?

Here's a list of all of the stories we've ever read below.  Let me know which one(s) are your favorites and I'll see what I can do to make this idea a reality.
