Skirmisher Releases 'The Christmas Inn'

Michael O. Varhola

Skirmisher Publishing is pleased to announce the release of “The Christmas Inn” at DriveThruFiction, DriveThruRPG, and RPGNow (10 pages, $0.50). 

This short story set in Medieval England during the turbulent War of the Roses tells how the events of one cold and stormy winter night caused an old and storied inn for travelers to have its name changed. It includes some pleasingly evocative imagery, particularly with regard to the proprietors of the inn and the men-at-arms that converge upon it. 

“The Christmas Inn” was written by author Ella F. Mosby and illustrated by acclaimed English-American artist R.B. Birch and was originally published in 1892. Modern readers may find the tensions described in this story strikingly familiar but take heart at the way they are set aside during the holiday season.
