Diana Comet and the Christmas Quilt – A short story by Sandra McDonald

Have you heard of the award winning anthology Diana Comet and Other Improbable Stories by Sandra McDonald? If not, it’s definitely a worthwhile read. In honor of the winter holidays, Sandra has posted one of the stories from her anthology online for people to read.

Diana Comet and the Christmas Quilt” is the story of a teenage girl who wants Diana Comet’s help in “fixing” her baby brother, who likes to dress in women’s clothing. It’s a great story, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

Diana Comet and Other Improbable Stories won a Lambda Literary Award, was a Booklist Editor’s Choice, and is an American Library Association “Over the Rainbow” book.  Hal Duncan called it “a book to fall in love with” and Strange Horizons said it was “lighthearted, never preachy, wryly detached and restrained.”

 Here’s the link to the story. Enjoy!
