Or order directly from me.
Kindle (The text of both stories, flip-book not replicated.)

In the DarkWhimsy Books Paperback Doublefront edition, the two stories are presented offset to each other with two “front covers,” with the interior text offset 180 degrees. Put simply, Read the first story. Flip the book. Read the second story. Still don’t get it? This video should clear it all up.

Two Short Christmas Tales, Two Covers, One Great Gift

Presenting the  first-ever DarkWhimsy DoubleFront Book, which pairs a lighthearted religious play with a paranormal adventure to offer a gift to every avid reader of Christmas stories.

The Beacon is an original SF comedy two-act Christmas play, presented as performed in 2017. The spaceship USG Starprobe and its three-person crew travel to Earth of 2000 years ago to investigate a star-like phenomenon shining over a little town. As they arrive, the ship is attacked by the space pirate Ted the Merciless. Can they call a truce long enough to solve the mystery of… The Beacon? (Spoiler: it’s baby Jesus.) The Beacon is presented in its play form.

Blue Christmas reunites the mysterious Rebecca Burton and Blue Shaefer from RJ’s ongoing paranormal series. Blue and Chip are enjoying a quiet Christmas Evening together when the mysterious Rebecca knocks on their door… with a peace offering. Blue and Rebecca had last parted ways furious with each other. Blue decides to hear her out–and hopes she won’t regret it. Blue Christmas is a reprint of a story originally published in the anthology Gifts of the Magi.

Special thanks to Section 28 Publishing for their invaluable help in navigating this confusing process.
