You better watch out for airstrikes. You better not cry, when your buddy dies. You better not pout, when your house gets levelled. I’m telling you, they’re here and they don’t like you.
They’re making a list of captives, and they’re crosschecking them with our handy little check-ins and DNA databases.
They’re gonna find out who’s been naughty in their lives and who’s nice and stupid to a fault.
They’re coming to town.
They see you when you’re sleeping at night. They know when you’re awake in terror. They know if you’ve been bad or good, so no matter what you do it makes no difference at all.
You better watch out for airstrikes. Cause they like them a lot. You better not cry, when your family dies, cause you’re next on the red dot.
No, wait. Start the presses. Start them. Bad analogy.
The retelling of “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens is now on paperback.
Scrooge is looking for a taxi to get home on Christmas Eve. But he will get the ride of his life, as he is walked through his past, his present and his future to end up a changed man.
Set in modern day Athens, this science-fiction version of the classic ghost story is guaranteed to bring shivers down your spine and a smile to your face.
“It isn’t too late for all us Scrooges, and this story did make me see more than the classic.”
“An entertaining, uplifting novella perfect to read during Christmastime.”
“This is a rollicking, hiccup producing, laugh out loud morality play that would make Dickens sit up and take notice. A lot of fun!”
Look at these gorgeous Victorian illustrations by Arthur Rackham, the book illustrator of Ebenezer Scrooge’s story. A fine Mythographer indeed. His gritty, realistic drawings inspired the director Guillermo del Toro, who cites Rackham as an influence on the design of “The Faun” of Pan’s Labyrinth.
Sounds fun. Can I get it in time for cozy reading with twinkly ambiance?
