Reindeer – Disgruntled Employees on Strike

Synopsis:

The behind the scenes story of what really happened “The Night Before Christmas.”

It’s Christmas Eve. The reindeer go on strike with a list of demands for Santa, the elves and Mrs. Claus. Santa gets “loaded” and threatens to cancel Christmas, fire the deer and divorce Mrs. Claus. But, just when all seems lost, Christmas is saved by a timely fart.

Review

A poem along the lines of Clement Moore’s Twas’ The Night Before Christmas. I found the narrative to be very comical and entertaining, and the images from Nadja Andrasev that accompanied it to be fun to look at and tied to the narrative.

If there was one drawback, it would be with the electronic edition. The Epub version that I received for the nook had graphic files that were extremely large and made it impossible for the nook to load. Hopefully with the production version of the product, they’ve resolved that issue.

[12/12/2012: Mr Morningside contacted me in regards to the problem I had downloading and had the following information to provide

"I believe that the reason you had trouble with the DL of the graphics is because my book is exclusive to the iBookstore.com distribution site and is not meant for download to anything but the iPad; iPod or iPhone. Apple was the only system that could accommodate the graphics for e-distribution."

So I am happy to add this to explain the one issue and to let you know in case you decide to go out and purchase it. If it becomes available for other formats later on, we'll be sure to let you know.]

Mr. Morningside does list this as a Christmas Story for adults, so it’s not something you might want to give your children. For you adults who just want a fun little Christmas story of your own, I’d recommend it.

About the Author

Born into a body inhabited by multiple muse personalities, I create stories by stretching the “normal” beyond the boundaries of the absurd. The result is a worm-hole ride to the Far Side. I love a good story — so, I wrote one. Enjoy it with my wishes for a happy holiday season.

  4. Jacob Morningside Says:

    Rick, First of all, thank you so very much for your review and the time you provided for same. I believe that the reason you had trouble with the DL of the graphics is because my book is exclusive to the iBookstore.com distribution site and is not meant for download to anything but the iPad; iPod or iPhone. Apple was the only system that could accommodate the graphics for e-distribution.
    If you can make this change to your posting it may prevent others from experiencing the same trouble.
    Thanks for everything, Jacob
