It's Santa Claus vs. Krampus - TO THE DEATH
The Long Yuletide War is a series of short stories I'm working on about the hidden history of that mysterious figure known as Santa Claus and his dark alpine shadow Krampus.

This is an ongoing project, story 5 was just uploaded. Not sure how many stories it will take to finish, but I do know where and how it ends.

The stories are free and under a creative commons license. This is most definitely a "Not For kids" cycle of stories. I write an "author's note" at the end of each story, some more profound than others. I also from time to time blog about the writing process, mostly about the research I'm doing for the stories. Trust me, the history of Christmas is a deeper well than you probably suspect.

It's Dec. 5th, krampusnacht. Liven up your holiday season with a shaggy horned ogre who many consider the most interesting Christmas tradition they're never heard about. Come get to know Krampus.

"Oh sweet Jesus, Elvis, and Buddha, please do not let this be the Christmas I find out I'm the heir to some weird, underground transcontinental S&M porn empire. Please let him not be that rich Austrian grandfather..."

This would be a Christmas dream come true!

Thanks for the great read.
