The Best Christmas Ever
by James Patrick Kelly
SciFiction: OriginalKindle-friendly ((The Kindle-friendly version is NOT hosted on my site; this is a CGI script that filters the more annoying framing HTML from the story text. You can still save the filtered HTML and convert it for your Kindle (with some help from Amazon). And remember: don’t distribute this thing.))

He’s the last human on Earth. Ever since the next-door neighbor died.

S∂’s full 2008 Advent Calendar.
