“One of America’s best satiric novelists” (Kirkus Reviews), S. G. Browne seamlessly gift wraps this horrific and hilarious sequel to his “extremely strong” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) zombie novel Breathers. He sees you when you’re sleeping . . . he knows when you’re undead. How does the leader of a failed zombie civil rights movement from California rescue a group of his undead brethren and help a lonely Breather girl as he hides from a band of medical researchers while disguised as Santa Claus? If you’ve never believed in Christmas miracles, then you wouldn’t understand. Andy Warner has just escaped from a zombie research facility in Portland, Oregon, where he’s been subjected to experimental testing for the past year. With Christmas just days away, Andy figures that donning a jolly old St. Nick costume to throw off his would-be captors is just the ticket. But he never expects to encounter a sweet, lonesome nine-year-old girl who not only reminds Andy of the family he’s lost but who thinks he’s the real Santa. He also doesn’t count on being recognized as last year’s national quasi-celebrity by a clandestine group of decaying supporters who look to him for leadership. For the living and the undead, this unforgettable holiday tale will truly put on display just who is gnawing and who is nice. . . .

Many American adults grew up being taught that Santa Claus was the personification of Christmas. We have associated the lights, the sounds and individuals dressed in red winter coats, pants and black boots, and of course the hat with Santa Claus and the Christmas traditions. Now that we have grown up and no longer believe in the myth of Santa Claus, his person is still thrust in front of us, in all types of manner and media. Local and national chain stores carry on the myth. Many cities hold parades that emphasis the myth. And the myth transforms us and became a liability for us. Not only has this type of Christmas disillusioned adults, but our children are now asking if this is all there is.But, there is the other Christmas!There is the other Christmas that is an expression of love from the heart. That creates relationships and deep meaning. It is through the other Christmas that the lights and sounds we enjoy are justified, and where our presence is more significant than a present. Follow along as the authors explain the Other Christmas, who does the giving and who is the receiver. Follow along as we rediscover the other Christmas, as they answer the question: IS SANTA CLAUS REAL?

Brimming with laugh-out-loud Santa stories, How Santa Lost His Jollies is a humorous take on Santa "events" from around the globe, from Santa gropers, to flying Santas (Elvis impersonators), to patented Santa traps, and of course, the usual kids (naughty) with their Santa-defying tricks. Drawn from genuine, and documented, news articles, How Santa Lost His Jollies reveals the trial and tribulations- even dangerous situations -endured by today's Santa. Well, not the real Santa, but those jolly old elves who work the trade for dollars. Admittedly, it was one dark and dismal Christmas Eve when in a desperate attempt to ignite my own holiday spirit, I resorted to dredging up Santa-in-the-news events off the internet. It wasn't long before I found myself laughing out loud. Therein lies the beginning of How Santa Lost His Jollies -- as well as the crummy feeling one gets upon discovering that the guy who delivered your first bicycle is right now busy getting his nose bloodied and a couple of eyes seriously discolored in a back alley, one quite possibly located near you. Santa stories, like all holiday stories, are meant to be shared. Accordingly, each Santa news event has been reconfigured to include a short multiple-choice quiz designed to keep both grinches and guests engaged and amused. You already know the scene: Christmas day; cooks in the kitchen; kids squabbling over noisy, blinking toys; teenagers tying up the TV with noisier, electronic games; guys swapping fish stories; and the self-appointed in-law joke-teller laughing at his own dirty jokes. Time to open How Santa Lost His Jollies, assign the family grinch to read the stories out loud and let the cooks, kids, and by now slightly inebriated men-folk guess the punch lines. Only right answers count.
