Publisher's Summary

When life gave Fenrir Goldson a second chance, he asked for a gift receipt. 

Mr. Goldson is filthy rich. He’s also callous and cruel and hasn’t got a festive bone in his ancient body. Naturally, he’s due for a holiday haunting. 

When his business partner, Bolbi Baggs, announces that they’re to be visited by three spirits, Mr. Goldson braces himself for a whirlwind tour of his past, present, and future. 

Typically, a trio of time-traveling ghosts heralds a heartwarming tale of hope and redemption for the human race. Mr. Goldson, however, isn’t a member of the human race. He’s a Dwarf, and Mr. Baggs is a Halfling, and the adventure that’s about to take them across the enchanted world of Arth is anything but typical. 

Holiday magic and economic realities collide in A Song of Three Spirits. It’s A Christmas Carol for the 21st century, with a dash of high fantasy. Listen to this hilarious satire of Charles Dickens’s classic today!

Fun Aarth "Christmas" Side Story

If you've read any of The Dark Profits Saga (and if you haven't, go buy them now. You'll thank me later), then you know how funny they are and how spot on Doug Tisdale's narration is. Those factors alone make this worth getting. If you're not familiar with Aarth and that whole society, suffice it to say that this is good fantasy story (this is a fantasy variation on Dickens' "A Christmas Carol") with a good dose of humor thrown in. Don't eat or drink while listening. You may find yourself choking from laughing. Definitely a good listen.

Very good take on an old tale

I drove right in after reading the first two in the dark profits saga. Excellent rendition and satire. I love the ability of the author to take something I know and turn it about 15° different. It was interesting to see into the origin story just a tiny bit for the two bankers that are so central in the saga. The narrator was excellent as well.

10/10

Apesar de ser fantasia, essa releitura de "Um Conto de Natal" do Charles Dickens é a história mais real, cínica e deliciosa sobre essa comemoração anual que eu já li.

Os personagens, Mr. Goldson e Bolbi Baggis, são os seres mais desprezíveis e focados em lucros e resultados que eu já vi, mas ao mesmo tempo eles são caricaturas realistas de diversas figuras atuais "de negócios" famosas e é impossível não rir de como eles tentam subverter até mesmo a história de Natal mais tradicional e fofa de todos os tempos.

A estrutura é basicamente a mesma, mas as batidas apresentadas são novas, diferentes e refrescantes - como todo bom remix deve ser.

Resumindo: recomendo para todo mundo que goste de fantasia, comédia e que queira entender um pouco mais sobre o mundo.

10/10 e com certeza reler será uma nova tradição natalina.

(Obs: A crítica sobre custo de oportunidade e como é mais barato fazer caridade e contar com boas relações públicas do que ter que lidar com boas regulamentações e tributos é tão maravilhosa e bem escrita que chega a ser absurdo que ela esteja em um livro de "comédia".

Bem, é aquilo né, "Se quiser contar uma verdade para as pessoas você precisa fazê-las rir... Do contrário elas te matam").

A fun satire of an old classic

This is a fun satire of the Charles Dickens classic 'A Christmas Carol' ... just with the economical twist that the Dark Profit saga is famed for.

This short features two of the characters from the Dark Profit saga who, despite being quite central to the series take somewhat of a backseat overall. Fenrir Goldson and Bolbi Baggs, a dwarf and halfing business duo who run the most successful banking house (Goldson and Baggs) in all of Arth

It's a fun little romp through an old classic with bags of humour thrown in. So far I have enjoyed everything I've read/listened to from the universe of the Dark Profit saga and look forward to more going forward.

I also like the fact that, just by knowing what happens in a Christmas Carol you can't be overly certain that the same will play out in this due to the nature of the two main characters ... they actually make Scrooge seem like a decent chap.

All good things aside, I did kind of feel a tad flat at the ending but it was only a minor downside for me. Still a very enjoyable read/listen.

This can be enjoyed as a stand alone but, in my opinion, you'd be mad not to try to the novels (Orconomics and Son of a Liche). As ever, Doug Tisdale Junior's narration was perfect. This man was born to narrate the goings on in Arth.
