One Foot in the Grave is a wonderful little (5 pages) tale about loss.
Stories that have the sense of the macabre about them hold a special place in my heart. Death and coming to terms with unresolved issues adds to the flavour of the story. Steven J. York spins all of this into a delightful tale about a man, his foot and once-upon-a-time beloved Betty.
Ever since his loss Christmas has become a special experience for our narrator and we get to follow that experience 50 years down the road. I believe I have become a fan of Mr. York.

I think it’s interesting how often Christmas is paired with Halloweenish stories. Like this, or the Nightmare Before Halloween (Movie). They seem so at odds that an interesting dissonance is created bringing them together.
That is a really good point.
