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.
