"Christmas crept into Pine Cove like a creeping Christ thing: dragging garland, ribbon, and sleigh bells oozing eggnog, reeking of pine, and threatening festive doom like a cold sore under the mistletoe."
So begins Christopher Moore's madcap tale of the possible death of a beloved holiday icon by shovel, and a Christmas "miracle" gone dreadfully awry - as the town's dead come back to life and feast on the living. As Publisher's Weekly put it, Moore's "little slice of perverse Christmas cheer is enough to make a cynical Scrooge guffaw."
The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror is available at Amazon.com.
