This issue we have largely put aside our regular articles to bring you a Christmas special, filled with stories and pictures from some of your favourite Primgraph writers - and some who are new to the magazine too!
You will be able to read Frau Annechen Lowey's account of the planning it takes to send presents in the Steamlands.
Miss Qwis Greenwood has the story of the ingenious solution that the Tinies came up with to ensure that the Guvnah received the best ever Christmas pudding.
Miss Beq Janus has the story of The Little Match Girl of New Babbage, while Mr Linus Lacombe tells us of the time that Steelhead Nearly Lost Christmas - and all its scamps as well!
Miss Ceejay Writer tells a story of holiday good will set in the dieselpunk region of Seraph City, while Miss Jedburgh30 Dagger has another tale of New Babbage - where a lonely librarian receives An Unexpected Visit.
In addition to this, we have - courtesy of Mr PJ Trenton - a super long episode of The Quest for the Golden Prim. The academics have escaped ... but Nan and Minnie are being held by the pirates. Will they manage to get away? And if they do ... will they find that worse dangers await them?
This is the final installment of Volume I of the Quest; Volume II will be starting in our first issue of the New Year!
Other familiar features you will find in this issue include Frau Lowey's always excellent advice on Etiquette. This issue, as we celebrate Christmas and contemplating our Thank You notes, she has some timely advice to give on the writing of letters. And Her Grace the Duchess of Caledon Carnteigh allows us to peek once more into her closet to share some of her incomparable fashion secrets ...
So, with no shortage of fascinating articles and beautiful illustrations supplied by our brilliantly talented team of photographers, we welcome you to this fourteenth - and very seasonal - issue of The Primgraph.
And to illustrate all this, our magnificent team of photographers: PJ Trenton, GM Nickolaidis, Twisted Lemon, Alex Aeon and Beq Janus have captured some stunning images to supply your with some incredible holiday eyecandy!
