ALTERNATIVE HOLIDAYS (edited by Alicia Hilton and Bob Brown) is an anthology that takes a dark—and sometimes humorous—look at many of our favorite holidays.
You will be transported from the bottom of the sea to Mount Olympus, from shopping malls in hell to a bathtub in a cheap motel. Cthulhu awakens. Cupid becomes a vigilante. Santa grants deadly wishes. And that is just the beginning of your journey into alternative visions of the holidays we know, love, and sometimes fear.
Be prepared to be shocked, titillated, and petrified. Alternative Holidays presents 43 works by award-winning and critically acclaimed authors of horror, science fiction, fantasy, and mystery.
