Here is more on David Morrell’s
=== “The Hundred-Year Christmas” ===

“Told in Morrell’s characteristically lean prose, The Hundred-Year Christmas is an endearing fable spiced with wry humor and a presence of darkness, but also warmth and love” – Douglas E. Winter, Critic & Author,

In 1983, bestselling author David Morrell, who created the iconic character Rambo in his 1972 novel, First Blood, decided to write a novella that was a complete change of pace from his traditional action thrillers. The result was The Hundred-Year Christmas (nominated for the 1984 World Fantasy Award), which Stephen King hailed as “enchanting”.

Originally written as a Christmas present for Morrell’s two children, the novella has different meanings depending if you are a child or an adult. It is about the poignant friendship between Father Christmas, who lives to be a hundred, and Father Time, who lives for only a single year before being replaced. Each year, Santa sees a new version of his friend grow through infancy, boyhood, adulthood, and into an old man, eventually dying. Now it is Santa’s turn, but he is having trouble finding a replacement. If he doesn’t succeed, there will be no one to take care of the infant Father Time. Time itself will stop.

Due to overwhelming requests for this rare and much-loved Christmas fable, published over twenty-five years ago, Morrell partnered with publisher Dave Hinchberger of Overlook Connection Press to create a new version of Morrell’s novella, featuring spectacular all new color drawings by artist Cortney Skinner, commissioned exclusively for this special reissue of the book.

“The Hundred-Year Christmas is my rarest book,” Morrell says, “and over the years I have had so many requests for it to be rereleased that I finally decided to do so, but with new artwork, slight structural changes, as well as an introduction entitled ‘A Snow Globe of Memories’.”

Enjoy your weekend and remember to shout YO HO HO! Whenever you see a Santa in your neck of the woods. He'll get a kick out of it ;-)

Keep On Shining out there!
