Utterly Farcical Nonsense by

A Midnight Clear

Six stories of not-so-merry Yuletide whimsy from the authors of Black Spot Books.

A woman so cold she hardens to ice on a winter’s eve. Risen from his grave before his time, a winter god alters the balance between seasons. A wolf’s holiday season is interrupted by a strange curse. From a murder at the Stanley Hotel to demons of Christmas past, present, and future, and a mad elf and Santa’s Candy Court, the authors of Black Spot Books share their love for winter holidays in this collection of dark winter tales, destined to chill your bones and warm your heart for the Yuletide season.

The Dauntless by Sam Hooker

“In the unforgiving depths of madness, no one can hear your tidings of comfort and joy.”

How far will the Holly Jolly Justice Council go in pursuit of the truth? Can the Candy Court grapple with good and evil when it’s only ever dealt with naughty and nice? When unspeakable terror appears on the Naughty list, the fates of six elves are plunged into darkness — and the least fortunate among them is the one who lived.
