CHRISTMAS MYSTERY SHORT STORY ANTHOLOGIES & NOVELLAS

This year I've separated Christmas Mystery Short Stories and Novellas from the Christmas Mystery Novel lists. Since this is the first time I've done this, there may be some overlaps and omissions. Let me know, and I can easily update. Thanks to Kate Derie for this idea.

For the Christmas novel lists by author, go here: Authors A-EAuthors F-L, Authors M-Z,
