Publisher's Summary

The audiobook edition of a rare story David Morrell wrote to give to his friends at Christmas is finally available. Featuring a foreword by the author, this is a novella that has different meanings, depending if you're a child or an adult. It's about the poignant friendship between Father Christmas, who lives a hundred years before being replaced, and Father Time, who lives only a single year before being replaced. Each year, Santa sees a version of his friend grow old and die. Now it's Santa's turn, but he's having trouble finding a replacement, and if he doesn't succeed, there'll be no one to take care of the infant Father Time, and time itself will stop.

MAKE IT A TRADITION

THE HUNDRED-YEAR CHRISTMAS is a stand-alone short holiday fantasy story.

The forward is about 1/3 of the 55 minutes of the recording. Don’t skip it (at least the first time you listen to it); it’s worth knowing the background of this story.

This is a story that reminds us (once again) that Christmas is more about giving than receiving, that the love should be embodied all year round, and that Christmas and New Year are more than days on the calendar.

I intend to make this an annual listen.

Narration: The narrator, Owen Moogan, does a superb job of presenting the story. He brings the magic of Christmas and Santa’s dilemma to life.

Note: While I received this book as a gifted audiobook copy via freeaudiobookpromocodes, my opinions are my own and are given freely.
