Terror Tuesday: ALTERNATIVE HOLIDAYS edited by Alicia Hilton

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.
