A Christmas story reprinted

It’s Christmas again! If you’re looking for a bit of an antidote to saccharin seasonal fare, my science fiction-fantasy-police procedural-CanLit-CliFi-Christmas-flash story, “To the Havens,” has been reprinted in Little Blue Marble this week. Sadly, it only seems to get more topical every year.

I note that, since it was first published, one part of the story is no longer science fiction. A permanent road between Tuktoyaktuk and Inuvik opened just last month. Before that, the two communities were connected only by a winter ice road. ETA, December 28: However, the latest news reports say that the Mackenzie Valley pipeline will remain fantasy for the foreseeable future.
