Every year, editor Amy Eye goes through her contact list and assembles a group of authors and artists spanning a wide range of genres to contribute Christmas themed content to the anthology series Christmas Lites. ALL of the proceeds from the book go to benefit the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
Christmas Lites V is out now, and I’m very excited about my contribution. “The Krampus Tree” is a horror Christmas poem illustrated by Jeff Miller. It’s a wicked little thing done up in children’s book style. As I said when I read it on Halloween at the Lovecraft Arts and Sciences Council: imagine Dr. Seuss meets Arthur Machen.
The book also contains a new story by J.G. Faherty for the horror fans out there, and a great range of holiday stories to get you into the spirit of the season, whatever mood you’re in. The ebook version features Jeff’s illustrations of the poem in full color (if your e-reader device has a color screen). The paperback is black and white. Both are available now.
Please pick up a copy today. It’s for a great cause, and it’s the only place you’ll find “The Krampus Tree” this holiday season.
