In honor of Christmas and Santa Claus (in case you aren’t aware of who he is, he is a fat, bearded fellow who dresses in red and then climbs down people’s chimneys on December 24 in order to leave stuff in their homes – yes, rather odd), I’m publishing a Christmas short story called “The Christmas Caper.” It’s in my Mike Murphy collection, but this new version is revised and much more delicious. I figured I might as well throw it out there solo for Christmas. If you haven’t read the story before, it pretty much answers all those burning questions you have about how Santa manages to do all his work in one night. I did a lot of research to figure that one out.
That’s the cover, yes, minus the text.
