Hodder and Stoughton Press Release: The Christmas Spirits by Whitley Strieber

The Christmas Spirits

Well, don’t you just love retellings of classic Christmas stories, particularly those with sci-fi/horror twists? I mean, I loved the Doctor Who episode A Christmas Carol, and now, we get to see Whitley Strieber’s take on the Dickens classic, an author whose works I’ve never read before, but nonetheless, I will look forward to reading this one. Check below for a trailer, blurb and a press release which I got in my inbox recently.
