"Santa Must Die" is up @Do Some Damage, and a cameo

Well, here is the last post for 2010, and...it's a different one.

For the Do Some Damage Christmas Fiction Challenge, I was going in one direction when I was writing the story, and I let the word count influence what direction it finally ended in. Either way, the working title was and is, "Santa Must Die." It's also the last Do Some Damage post of the year, so I might really have to move out of the country after this one (preferably to one without extradition).



In other news, over at Dark Valentine, Paul D. Brazill has the sixth day of Christmas covered, with Roman Dalton. I guarantee that he's a detective unlike any other that you've seen before. There's also a cameo by the biggest bastard that I've ever known, and he plays the bartender.

Happy New Year, Cormac. I thought your effort over at DSD was as cool as a cucumber and a great end to the year. Super stuff.

Best, Alan.

Happy New year, mate. U2 talk crap, by the way, because all isn't quiet on New Year's Day. Lemmy is playing in my head!

Very nice. I totally didn't see that coming. Well done, my friend.

Alan,

Happy New Year to you, too! I honestly hate the story, but I'm glad everyone else disagrees with me. I'm looking forward to reading your writing again in this coming year.

Paulie Decibels,

Happy New Year, and check my CWrites for a song dedicated to you.

Princess,

Thank you very much.

Welcome, and thanks much.

Great story, Cormac. Left the following comment over there..."They start young those Mafia kids! Excellent tale, Cormac. Some great lines and a superb ending, although I felt sorry for the piss-stained Victor."

Happy New Year!!!

David,

Happy New Year, thanks, and yeah, I wish I had enough room for Victor to get away with it (though they would've gotten him, eventually).

Sky Dad,

Happy New Year!
