I’ve got a story in there, along with several other excellent writers. My particular tale is about Christmas in Australia, in the suburbs, in the heat. About kids who’ve been failed by adults and adults who don’t know how to handle kids who are hurting. It’s about the not-so-nice side of Christmas experienced by those who don’t have much to look forward to.
Hey, it’s a horror story. It wouldn’t be worthy of its genre if it were all jingling sleigh bells and giggling kiddies.
So get ready for Christmas in Australia, with its Holly berries painted red with nail polish, fat bearded blokes in thick red suits struggling to ward off dehydration in the sun, and hot roast dinners in the middle of a heatwave.
