It's Christmas again at St Mary's, and instead of joining in with the festivities Max, Markham and Peterson jump to Ancient Egypt on a retrieval mission in order to prevent a major temporal crime. Things don't go to plan, however (no surprise there) ...

I really enjoy these short stories that are set between the novels. While they don't always move on the plot – though there is an exchange that strongly hints at a future development – they are always worth reading for the interactions between the characters and their sheer inventiveness, especially concerning disasters befalling the historians, or Markham, or both.

Okay, Egypt lovers! Wanna get eaten alive by bugs? Hmmmm Markham?

This is another christmas story, so, surprise, surprise.. not *that* much goes wrong, unless, of course, you're Max and you just have to pawn off your Wedding Ring to some jerk in ancient Egypt.

Long story.

Or no, it really isn't, actually. Short story. Why aren't you time-travel fans reading this? Silly people. ( )

For the past few Christmases, Jodi Taylor has published a sort of "St.Mary's Christmas Special" short story, just to add to the festive spirit.

"Ships And Stings And Wedding Rings" is a short story in this tradition. The audiobook version is ninety minutes long, a perfect length for a relaxing listen after a good Christmas lunch.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the series, I should explain that "The Chronicles Of St. Mary's" is a series of books about a bunch on very British historians who research past events by getting in a time machine, turning up at the right moment, watching what happens and trying not to get killed. The last part is often much more difficult than you might imagine.

The humour of the books comes from the insistence on the application of British pluck to muddle through, regardless of what is thrown at them. The darker tones of the books come from the dire nature of the things that behalf them: wars. plagues, sieges, fire storms and the interference of people with ill intent.

This short story doesn't dwell on the darker aspects of the St. Mary's experience. It's a feel-good adventure where the team have to pop back to Ancient Egypt to try and correct a mistakes before anyone knows it's been made, and before the entire time-line collapses into chaos if everything falls butter-side-down.

The text is brisk and witty and appropriately happy ever afterish, or as happy ever after as something as chaotic and crisis prone can be. Certainly at least happy until after the New Year's Eve hangover has dissipated.

If you already enjoy St Mary's then this a happy little Christmas break. If you're new to St. Mary'a this could be a way of seeing if you like it. If you do like it, then start with "Just One Damned Thing After Another" and enjoy the ride.

Max’s team from St. Mary’s is getting a reputation for breaking the rules on Christmas Eve and here they go again with all good and righteous motives to retrieve an item lost in ancient Egypt. This was, for the most part, a fun tale of misadventure (poor Markham!). ( )

Another Christmas short from St Mary's. Another delightful tale. What should have been an easy, although off the book, jump, will turn, as usual, into a more complicated situation really quick. And, of course, there will be danger involved.

I like these short stories on their own, but they are really good at portraying the St Mary's atmosphere. Also, it is just hilarious. This one in particular. ( )
