3.0 out of 5 stars A good short story collection January 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Krampusnacht is a short story collection featuring three stories, here's a line summary on each of them:

(1)Krampusnacht - Gears and Jake get involved in saving the famous jolly red-attired man who finds himself on the wrong side of a horned demon.

(2)Pause - This time around its Commander Courageous who has to step in between two chroniclers who are hastening to find about an anomaly on Christmas!

(3)Fulfillment - Lastly its Mrs. Rita who knows so much more and possibly holds the cards when it comes to orchestrating events?

The short story collection has a curious pattern to it, the three stories are sequential however they go the reverse direction timeline wise, that is the second tale is a prequel to the first and the third the prequel to the second. This curious arrangement makes a lot of sense while reading the stories and it would be unfair for me to reveal more about it.

The short focus on the side character cast and this is a welcome move as we get to know more about them as well understand the world lucidly. The stories focus upon Gears, Jake and Mrs. Rita and a few other entities, these stories serve a dual purpose of giving these characters more face time as well as introducing the cooler aspects of the story universe to the reader with an intent to explore them further in the future books. Just a reminder, one should read this book preferably after reading Imperium as it will make more sense. The world of the Caulborn is an exciting one and the author is doing his best to entice the readers completely.

More About the Author

My childhood consisted of way too many video games, comic books and 80's cartoons. Add in a healthy appetite for Tolkien and Stephen King, and the end result was a geek who had visions of someday writing his own novels.

It was Terry Brooks' Wishsong of Shannara that really clinched it and got me excited about writing. But it wasn't until years later, after reading Jim Butcher's Storm Front, that I decided to take a crack at urban fantasy. After a month of Pepsi-and-Snickers-assisted brainstorming, Vincent Corinthos and the Caulborn were conceived. A year later I published the first Caulborn novel, Imperium.

I've lived my entire life in various New England states, and I'm fascinated by New England's paranormal history. One thing I really enjoy is incorporating local paranormal events and urban legends into the books. Each Caulborn novel will include references to real-world supernatural occurrences, and explains how they fit into the Caulborn's world.

I live with my wife and three children, and a shape-shifting cat who may or may not be be in human form at any given moment. If you'd like to drop me a line, swing by my site - www.nicholasolivo.com
