In the mood for some good online reading? The book pages of the British newspapers have some great yuletide short stories, so put your feet up and enjoy:
The Blue Carbuncle, a Sherlock Holmes mystery by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle on the Sunday Times site (and in a companion piece, Alexander McCall Smith examines the appeal of Conan Doyles' work).
The Times also has Jeanette Winterson's Christmas Carol.
An exclusive new short story by Helen Simpson, The Festival of the Immortals, appears on The Guardian site.
And Salley Vickers has written a short story called Mrs Radinsky especially for The Observer.
