Synopsis

In a distant future, war and ecological apocalypse have devastated the earth. Erid, one of few survivors, has lived in a cave for years by himself. But when a strange light suddenly appears in the distance and a she-wolf seeks his trust, he decides to venture out from the safety of his cave. He will discover that no future can deny the possibility of Christmas.

The short story "Radiant Hope" is organized as an advent calendar with a picture at the start of each day's reading.

 

What others have said:

"The story is about some distant future time, and yet it seems as if you were back in the Stone Age. The authors paint a hopeless scenario: Winter, cold and snow as far as the eye can see. Loneliness, lurking dangers in the form of sickness, hunger, death, and wolves. ... Advent, the arrival: The classic theme of the protagonist journeying toward his destiny. Light, hope, and trust: Traditional Christmas images in an unusual Christmas story."
