THE CHRISTMAS STAR - 1 / 100 SIGNED / LIMITED EDITIONS.
by Christopher Fahy.
"Christopher Fahy is a Wonderful Writer" - Stephen King.
REVIEW IN! From The Library Journal
"VERDICT: Lines from the Tao Te Ching and black-and-white drawings by artist Courtney Skinner begin each chapter in this pleasant novella by Fahy (The Fly Must Die) that not so subtly encourages a more Zen way of life." - Library Journal, October, 2012.
I read Christopher Fahy’s beautiful and moving tale, “The Christmas Star,” two years ago and I was transformed by this wonderful and heart-warming story. I became so immersed in the character’s within and emotionally invested that I was surprised by what this story eventually brought out in me. By the end of the tale I knew I had to publish this story for everyone to read and become as entranced as I was. It was a gift for me, and I wanted to share it with my readers, here at the Overlook Connection.
I commissioned artist Cortney Skinner, the amazing artist on David Morrell’s “The Hundred Year Christmas,” to produce original illustrations for The Christmas Star. Mr. Skinner has spent over a year studying and working on these twelve original illustrations that encompass the mood and style of The Christmas Star story. The wood-cut designs that he has delivered perfectly evoke the feeling within this story by Christopher Fahy.
If you want to give a special gift this Christmas to family or a close friend, this is a beautiful story that I highly recommend, and a joy for anyone who reads it.
