Mean Christmas Night - Wayne D. Dundee

If you want a Christmas story that's a little offbeat, look no further than Wayne D. Dundee's "Mean Christmas Night". Is it heartwarming? Well, yeah, kind of. It's got a priest and a homeless guy, and it takes place on Christmas Eve. Goodwill toward men and all that jazz, to quote Lucy van Pelt.

But Dundee introduces a much darker element, and the plot turns downright gritty and, well, mean, as the story's title indicates. It makes for a compact, fast-moving tale that you'll probably read in one sitting, as I did. This is good stuff, and it might even help get you in the Christmas spirit.
