All Naughty, No Nice. By Michael A Arnzen
A zombie tale like no other, with Santa’s Magic keeping him trapped in a cold dead world.
The Christmas Spirit. By Lisa Morton
A Ghost story within a Ghost story – amazing execution of writing here – a true haunting old-fashioned Ghost story reminiscent of Joe Hills “Heart Shaped Box.”
Psychopath Remix. By J.C. Michael
A new twist on an old Song – all I can say is horrifyingly fun!
The Present. By Israel Finn.
He captures the horror of everyday life for a beaten woman with true emotion. But of course, it’s Christmas so she finds her husband the perfect gift – a truly terrifying gift.
Christmas Carole. By Lisa Vasquez.
This story had a folklore ring too it, terrifying and bloody that becomes a yearly horror for one little girl. A new Carole is born.
The Last Christmas Dinner. By Christina Bergling.
A feast to end all feasts….all I have to say is I don’t want to be invited to this dinner.
Along came this book recommended by Iain R. Wright so I gave it a chance and enjoyed the heck out of it.
The stories are cute and all the way up to terrific and none are stinkers! I am so glad the range is broad on the types of Christmas horror short stories.
Please spent a few hours reading this book; you'll thank me when you're done. I actually went back and purchased it after I had read it for free cause I am certain to want to read it again before next Christmas.
"Psychopath Remix" takes a beloved Christmas song and perverts it into a violent, even to some degree you could say Satanic, poem.
I love this collection!

Published by Kevin J Kennedy on 30th November 2016
It’s still only November and TV is awash with Christmas ads so to get me in the mood than reading an anthology of Christmas Horror shorts. With a mixture of 24 stories and poems, this book will certainly bring some Christmas cheer to Horror lovers. With so many stories I will still be writing this review on Christmas Eve so for time purposes, I am going to pick the ones that stood out for me. This was a difficult choice as they were all good reads.
Naughty or Nice by Veronica Smith: The story of Robert whilst he was working one night at Kmart. You notice as soon as Halloween has passed the shops start to sell Christmas merch and the Kmart was no difference. The story has killers that are unexpected and whilst they start out quite comical, it isn’t long until you know they need business.
All Naughty, No Nice by Michael A Arnzen: What happens if Santa still spread his magic in a zombie world. This story had a sense of sorrow to it as you knew how despondent Santa was
Merry F Christmas by Kevin J Kennedy: What starts out with a regular guy preparing for Christmas soon changes into a tale of revenge. This story was heartbreaking and what one tragic accident can result in. The killings were described in detail and will have you thinking what would you do.
Hung With Care by Ty Schwamberger: A family gets a surprise from Santa. I enjoyed the Bad Santa and the real reason why Santa visits on Christmas Eve. The unique decoration above the fireplace completed the story
Killing Christmas by Andrew Lennon: We all know people like Jeff, in fact, I am like him. I get fed up how Christmas comes earlier every year and as soon as Halloween is over Christmas is rammed down our throats, but what happens to Jeff, does have you worried.
The Last Christmas Dinner by Christine Bergling: For Susan, preparing Christmas dinner is one of the busiest times of the year. This story builds up to a surprise ending and you are drawn into what you think is a happy Christmas celebration.
Whilst I have not mentioned the others, that doesn’t mean that I did not enjoy them. There are plenty of stories that will keep you busy over the festive season, and whether you like Christmas or not this book will please horror readers whatever your taste in horror is as this book cover most of the sub-genres. I have the all the collected short stories and I find it is a good way to read authors work that I have not come across.
