A New Release For Christmas

Born in Turlock, California in 1964, Richard Paolinelli began his writing career as a freelance writer in 1984 in Odessa, TX and gained his first fiction credit serving as the lead writer for the first two issues of the Elite Comics sci-fi/fantasy series, Seadragon.

The Spirits of Christmas – Past, Present and Future – have taught important lessons when visiting mortal man, lessons that softened the heart of Ebeneezer Scrooge. But what if their lessons had fallen upon deaf ears and a heart so hard it could crush diamonds?

Throughout the night they travel through the shadows of Lyre’s life, hoping to redeem one more lost soul by teaching it the meaning of Christmas and good fellowship toward all.

Will Lyre learn the lessons they teach and take them to heart? Or will he deny their lessons and allow the darkness lying deep within his heart to trigger a dreadful worldwide Zombie Apocalypse?
