• Twas The Night Before Christmas, Shan-style!

    24 December 2019

    "Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the flat
    Not a creature was stirring, not even a cat.
    The black bags were hung outside by the lifts,
    In the hope that old Santa would drop off some gifts."


    Yes, folks, it IS the Night Before Christmas, just not as we know it! A few years ago, I wrote my own take on the famous poem, for a bit of a laugh. That's the start of it above.

    That's not the only Yuletide goodie on my website. There's also my annual Christmas short story, SHANTA CLAUS, in which the big guy in red crosses path with most of the main characters from my various series and and books -- Lord Loss, Mr Crepsley, B Smith, Jebel Rum, etc. etc. https://www.darrenshan.com/extras/feature/short-stories-shanta-claus-only-available-at-christmas-yuletide-favourite2


    And finally, if you're in the mood for some Shanified Christmas songs, I have the perfect tunes for you to belt out on Christmas Day: https://www.darrenshan.com/extras/feature/christmas-songs


    Rock on, little yuletide dudes and dudettes!!! :-)
