Overview

A young man�s past comes back to haunt him. A man walks the desolate streets of a slum and remembers the life he once had. A young boy gets the present he wished for from an unexpected source. Death cannot take a holiday. These are a few of the things which await in this collection of four dark tales, each set on Christmas Eve. From the humorous to the horrifying, this collection has them all.

A Little Distraction: Christmas Eve is a busy day, but not just for Santa. A humorous tale about an unexpected gift, from an unexpected source.

Walking In A Winter Wasteland: Paul Felix used to have money, but now he is a vagrant in a world where Christmas is outlawed. Walking to a soup kitchen on the night that was once Christmas Eve he contemplates his downfall, and the loss of more precious things in his life than money.

Frog Nog: A young man hoping to score with a girl from his class gets more than he bargained for when he joins her church group for Christmas caroling on Christmas Eve. When they attempt to sing for a pair of sisters rumored to be witches the terror begins!

It Came From Beyond The Midnight Clear: On Christmas Eve 1983 a boy named Charlie sneaks out of his house to see the town Christmas tree, anchored in a nearby lake. His Uncle Jason has told him that there is something in the night on Christmas other than Santa, and that if he is lucky he just might see �It�.

This little collection also includes three palate cleansing poems between each story: Bloody Snow, Little Things In Boxes and Puppet With A Handgun.

Warning: Some stories in this collection contain graphic violence.

Editorial Reviews

GoodReads.Com - Aussie Scribbler
This collection really is a Christmas treat for those of us who like something darker than A Muppet Christmas Carol with which to salute the season of good cheer and overdrawn credit cards. The four short stories and three amusingly sinister little poems make for a balanced meal of the funny, the tragic, the gross and the nostalgic.

Five Stars!
