Mystical, atmospheric, perfect for Christmas...

...but ..... I've removed one star for the author's notes delivered after each story, which more than slightly spoiled the atmosphere created by each of these very well written and well delivered stories. If there was any way these could be optional, e.g. together as a chapter at the beginning or right at the end?
