I think that this was pretty creative, a little wierd, but certainly entertaining. A "quick read", and the timing was good b/c I read it at Christmas. I think you need to be open minded and a little into fantasy novels to appreciate this short story. The author has a quirky sense of humor, which is evident in the writing style and dialog. Makes it fun to read --- even if you do not like the subject matter!
