WESTPORT, Mass., November 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Author Paull L. Goodchild has released a collection of short stories titled Christmas stories (and others). As a fervent atheist, he approaches the subject with an enthusiastic ambivalence, cheerfully pushing the limits of narration.
Five of the tales take place in an enchanted Christmas village at the North Pole and tell the adventures of an affable elf named Tinkle. These are sequential yet stand-alone comedic games that are not intended for children but are not particularly secular either. As the stories unfold, Tinkle becomes involved in a working action against Santa Claus, the community theater, and thwarting the evil machinations of a malicious elf named Gurgle. Cute, but with a little edge.
The other four stories are more or less tied to a quaint New England fictional town called Cold Brook. These stories are even more divergent, ranging from a modern Wodehouse-inspired comedy of manners to a sci-fi tale about the spirituality of AI, the duty of captain and interdependence.
The book is published via Kindle Direct Publishing, available on Amazon worldwide in paperback or Kindle edition.
