Adam Tanner, former drug addict, rock 'n' roller, and general all-around hellraiser, is now a dedicated family man, reflecting back on the good samaritan who saved his life and persuaded him to change his ways. A devoted husband and father, Adam and his perfect family are decorating the house for Christmas when a neighbor stops by with some...unsettling news.
Brian James Freeman's short story THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT makes for good holiday reading if, like me, you love the holiday, but want a little darkness mixed in with your Christmas cheer. Freeman does a great job of fleshing out his characters before giving them a kick in the nether regions.
A fun way to spend a little pre-holiday reading time.
Six out of ten devil heads!

Crabs, Assemble!, Part Seventeen: Marvel Premiere Classic, Vol. 80: Avengers: West Coast Avengers- Sins of the Past
I often enjoy reading/watching a good "Making of" more than I enjoy the film itself.

There are more, but those two, in particular, directly influenced my buying this book.

I'm always down for demonic possession in my entertainment, and having thought Grady Hendrix's MY BEST FRIEND'S EXORCISM was one of the best novels of the year, I was very excited to read Jason Arnopp's THE LAST DAYS OF JACK SPARKS. All of the blurbs by well-known authors, and the raves I've heard from people that I know (And whose opinions I trust...) only served to ramp up that excitement.
