Merry Christmas, everyone!
If you are like me, and you are a fan of the classic, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens then I would recommend that you read, The Christmas Spirits, written by Whitley Strieber. I would characterize it as a gritty, urban take on the original tale, with hints of sci-fi.
Whitley Strieber adds in just enough originality to warrant a revisit, but leaves enough of the original story to feel like you are seeing an old friend in a new and intriguing light.
Happy Christmas reading, everybody
