Finn remembers. The dark woods. The chair of bone and horn. He sat on Santa’s cold lap. The blue-black skin. Moon-glow eyes. The clotted beard. That distended belly that shook like things writhing in jelly.
May your holidays be weird. Want to make them weirder? Check out my story, “How to Kill Santa”, in Weird Winter Stories, an anthology featuring the characters of Sparrow and Crowe (from the audio drama Wormwood: A Serialized Mystery).
Norse draugr mythology meets Santa lore, preternatural parasites, and more! I’ve even made you a playlist to listen to while you read.
The night before Christmas is a long stretch of dark.
You can hide anything there.
