The Night Before The Christmas Before I Was Married and other festive tales

Charles Dickens has dominated the Christmas short story market for too long and he’s so bloody depressing… wouldn’t you rather read something that was funny, had comedy misunderstandings, people accidentally getting engaged and generally was a lot more entertaining and less depressing? Then you’re in luck…

Let’s be honest, Christmas can be a pain in the arse (or a pain in the ‘ass’ if you’re from the other side of the pond) and this collection features some stories that I think we can all relate to…

Whether it’s becoming accidentally engaged to your ex when your fiancee is coming home for Christmas…

Or perhaps you’re spending Christmas with the in-laws, your wife is stupifyingly drunk and you destroy the presents…

No?

In that case you’ll want to see what happens when two master hypnotists clash over an argument concerning a Christmas tree…

All these things and literally two others are dealt with in this collection of Adam Maxwell’s Christmas stories.

He has asked me to tell you that he hopes these things don’t happen to you this Christmas. And he also hopes they don’t happen to him.
