Silent Night, Lonely Night is a Phantom of the Opera fiction Christmas anthology.

Reactions and Reviews

This little Christmas booklet features some stories of the season featuring our guy, Erik. I did not feel myself particularly moved at any point in the stories, unfortunately; for more devout Christians, it may be a touching work, though. The writing is clearly fan fic, the artistry a bit too cartoonish at times for my taste, and the ideas sometimes unrealistic or borrowed. (One story features an orphan girl Erik raises, a girl child named Cosette. Remind you of anybody? Is Erik to begin singing, "24601, I'm Jean Valjean"?) [1]

Also included here are the front and back cover for Silent Night, Lonely Night, which was a 1990 single-issue Christmas-themed ‘zine containing holiday-themed fanfiction, and also a neat set of traditional French Christmas carols in the back for those who want to get into the spirit of things.

<...> These [this zine and Phantom’s Masquerade] were among the ‘zines that relied on fanart for their cover and interior images, as opposed to some others that took the approach of photocopying official artwork or photographs from performances instead. [2]
