And, grumpy as shit, and preloaded will the latest Christmas profanities.

After a poor start to his only real day working all year, Santa against his analytic department’s best-laid plans, overrides the sleigh’s autopilot and makes a pit stop at the only house whose cookies he’s ever loved. A poor landing and ironman-like entrance into the house later, Santa stumbles into something he had no desire to be part of – at least that he knows of. See, Santa isn’t who you think he is…not that he really knows either. Did I mention the thing he stumbles drunkenly into was zombies? Because it is.

Review: The Bearer of Bad News

“Don’t shoot the messenger” is a phrase taken very lightly throughout the World of Tor as the Bureau of Bad News continues to fuel its power by delivering terrible fates from its golden throne in the City of Trig. Anyone who receives such a letter, and is read out loud, will face a terrible demise, and so will the deliverer. These “Messengers” are considered bile as they travel to deliver such misfortunes, so why would James Roger Clemit volunteer for such a job? Be ready to be engaged in a swash-buckling adventure as James finds himself embarking on a journey of self-discovery, including swashbuckling combat, a Hunter with a death wish, trees that fight bears (and win), talking swords, and moose with Pegasus wings. While James cannot fully contemplate why he had been placed in such a world-altering position, a mysterious god notes that everything is going according to plan.
