Holly Hill was a place for Christmas! Holly Hill, the old rambling Stratford homestead in Virginia, on its high hill, looking down the long slope and across the wide fields to the far woods rimming the sky. From Bob, the veteran, within a month of his teens, down to brown-eyed Evelyn, with her golden hair floating all around her, when Christmas came everyone hung up a stocking, and the visit of Santa Claus was the event of the year. They went to sleep the night before Christmas-or rather they went to bed, for sleep was long far from their bright eyes-with delightful expectations and thrills along their backs, and with little squeakings and gurglings, like so many little white mice, and if Santa Claus had not always been so very prompt in disappearing up the chimney before daybreak he must certainly have been caught. For by the time the chickens were crowing in the morning there would be an answering twitter through the house, and with a patter of little feet and subdued laughter small, white-clad figures would steal through the dim light of dusky rooms and cold passages, opening doors with sudden bursts, and shouting "Christmas gift!" into darkened chambers, at still sleeping elders. Then they would scurry away in the gray light to rake open the hickory embers and revel in the exploration of their bulging, overcrowded stockings.
The Santa Claus Gang has struck again. Xmas Eve: the Prussian Death Squad Robot commandos (with Live Action Grappling Hooks!) disappear en masse. A panicked CEO places an early morning call for help. Ignoring Call Waiting, Marlowe and Nina answer, launching them yet again into the seedy, dumpster-filled underbelly of the City's criminal underworld. You'd think they'd have learned by now to pay attention to Call Waiting. 'Tis the season to stop the nefarious holiday-themed criminal organization from giving away the Most Wanted Toy of the Year. Otherwise, the poor conglomerate that manufactures the Prussian Death Squad Robot Commandos (with Live Action Grappling Hooks!) will be crushed. And if that isn't incentive enough, failure means Marlowe and Nina will be executed. The Santa Claus Gang is a short story set after the action of Marlowe and the Spacewoman, but before the nail-biting excitement of Balloons of the Apocalypse. And now, for a limited time, it's available in English!
Santa is kidnapped! Will he be freed in time for Christmas?
The Day Santa Met Jesus will carry you from the Santa Throne to the Throne of God. Santa meets a child who asks for a very unusal gift: a Bible for her Mama. What is a Bible, Santa wonders. As he takes a nap, Santa has an experience that will change his life forever. From the humble birth of Jesus, to the betrayal by Judas, to the angry mob, to the cross, then on to the empty tomb, Santa discovers many things that he had not known. He finds himself in the presence of several people whom Jesus had healed while he ministered on the earth. Among these people was one strange lady. With her came that odd feeling he had earlier with the child who wanted a Bible for her mama. Was there a connection? As you read, you will understand that the child and the woman were meant to be, for they bring about the meaning of a book called the Bible for Santa. As Santa understands more, he accepts Jesus' gift of salvation. He then knows he is not able to give the greatest of all gifts...yet he can share the greatest gift.
