With Christmas just around the corner, it's nice to receive a new 5 star review for my Christmas short story book, A Millionaire's Christmas, which was specially commissioned for a magazine's special Christmas edition some years ago. Available in Kindle version only and only 99p in the UK and less than a dollar in the USA.5.0 out of 5 stars A special Christmas miracle.

Aristedes Miklos is dying. No doubt about it. He knows he has an inoperable brain tumour, and nobody can help him. That is, until he is visited by a strange doctor, a newcomer to the hospital, where he lies on Christmas Eve seeing the days his youth in his mind’s eye. The doctor brings with him a young boy, Christos, also apparently terminally ill, who somehow reminds the old man of himself in his own younger days. And there we have a recipe for a very special Christmas miracle, one that will bring a smile to your face, as good Christmas stories should do.
Told in a really intriguing short story, A Millionaire’s Christmas is a brilliant and unusual Christmas tale, thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish.
A dying man and a sick young boy are about to experience the miracle of Christmas.
On a snowy Christmas Eve, Aristedes Miklos lies in his hospital bed, dying from an inoperable brain tumor. His mind takes him back to his youth and his life plays out before him in a string of mental cameos. Suddenly, the door to his hospital room opens and a strange doctor enters. When the doctor speaks to him, Aristedes is at first confused, then comforted by his words. Soon they are joined by a young boy who is dying, like him. Before he can find out more, the doctor and the boy are gone, and Aristedes is left with nothing but their memory.
When everyone at the hospital later denies the existence of the strange doctor, Aristedes begins to realize that he has been cast to play a very special role in the life of young Christos. For one dying man and a very sick young boy, the miracle of Christmas is about to unfold.
