This Twenty-Fifth Anniversary edition of a rare story David Morrell wrote to give out at Christmas, is now available again in a brand new signed-limited edition. Featuring all new color and b&w illustrations by artist Cortney Skinner commissioned exclusively for this volume.
This is a novella that has different meanings, depending if you’re a child or an adult. It’s about the poignant friendship between Father Christmas, who lives a hundred years before being replaced, and Father Time, who lives only a single year before being replaced.
Each year, Santa sees a version of his friend grow old and die. Now it’s Santa’s turn, but he’s having trouble finding a replacement, and if he doesn’t succeed, there’ll be no one to take care of the infant Father Time. Time itself will stop.
Father Christmas (Santa Claus) must find a successor to take his responsibilities for a hundred years. At the end of the hundred years, he climbs a hill to disappear into a mystic mist .
