Holiday Free Fiction: R3

Damn right we're Christmas—a holiday all about the foolish belief in the impossible. Flying reindeer are perfect for impossible. Doubters said you couldn't make flying reindeer, and they were right: We're not really reindeer; we're more like a whole new animal on a reindeer chassis.
R3 isn't really a reindeer, and he's had a rough life, but he brings Christmas all the same.

Read Read "R3", by Dennis Danvers.

And for a slightly different take on Reindeer physiology, see Robert Billing's Nature Futures short "Harnessing the brane-deer" (pdf).
