Haven’t you noticed the starved glint in the eye of the person telling you that, baby, it’s cold outside? Haven’t you wondered what eldritch magic was in that old silk cap put on Frosty? Don't you need some scary ghost stories to tell during this most wonderful time of the year? In Thomm Quackenbush’s warped winter wonderland, Santa is more than a benevolent gift-giver and you may pay richly for an unconvincing present-face. Through tales fantastic and close to home--where family mythology hinges on tragedy, where a misspelled letter to Santa brings infernal bureaucrats, and where the forces of Christmas cheer have been playing a long con--Quackenbush creates a holiday tableau that will make you laugh aware your uneasiness. Be wary, because it won’t be visions of sugarplums dancing in your head when you are done.

Thomm Quackenbush is an author and teacher in the Hudson Valley. Double Dragon publishes four novels in his Night's Dream series (We Shadows, Danse Macabre, and Artificial Gods, and Flies to Wanton Boys). He has sold jewelry in Victorian England, confused children as a mad scientist, filed away more books than anyone has ever read, and tried to inspire the learning disabled and gifted. He is capable of crossing one eye, raising one eyebrow, and once accidentally groped a ghost. When not writing, he can be found biking, hiking the Adirondacks, grazing on snacks at art openings, and keeping a straight face when listening to people tell him they are in touch with 164 species of interstellar beings.
