THE HUNDRED-YEAR CHRISTMAS | “Enchanting” - Stephen King
The Overlook Connection Press is proud to present

David Morrell’s “The Hundred-Year Christmas”

In 1983, bestselling author David Morrell, who created the iconic character Rambo in his 1972 novel, First Blood, decided to write a novella that was a complete change of pace from his traditional action thrillers. The result was The Hundred-Year Christmas (nominated for the 1984 World Fantasy Award), which Stephen King hailed as “enchanting”.

Originally written as a Christmas present for Morrell’s two children, the novella has different meanings depending if you are a child or an adult. It is about the poignant friendship between Father Christmas, who lives to be a hundred, and Father Time, who lives for only a single year before being replaced. Each year, Santa sees a new version of his friend grow through infancy, boyhood, adulthood, and into an old man, eventually dying. Now it is Santa’s turn, but he is having trouble finding a replacement. If he doesn’t succeed, there will be no one to take care of the infant Father Time. Time itself will stop.

Due to overwhelming requests for this rare and much-loved Christmas fable, published over twenty-five years ago, Morrell partnered with publisher Dave Hinchberger of Overlook Connection Press to create a new version of Morrell’s novella, featuring spectacular all new color drawings by artist Cortney Skinner, commissioned exclusively for this special reissue of the book.

“The Hundred-Year Christmas is my rarest book,” Morrell says, “and over the years I have had so many requests for it to be rereleased that I finally decided to do so, but with new artwork, slight structural changes, as well as an introduction entitled ‘A Snow Globe of Memories’.”

This edition of The Hundred-Year Christmas is a completely new production of this rare and classic tale. This book is at the printer and expected to ship in mid-December. Mr. Morrell's website newsletter has already pre-ordered a good number of these editions. I've kept aside copies exclusivly for the Overlook customers. In one week I will open up these copies to the people waiting on his list and at our distributors, so please order soon if you'd like a copy.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US and good tidings to everyone world-wide :-)
