    Overall a good, very different, little collection of short horror stories. There were some great ideas here however some really could have done with being expanded upon. Not always a lot of actual horror in detail but a very lighthearted take on some gruesome ideas and a really easy read. Just a bit of fun - don’t expect too much from this. 4*/5 (some stories were 3).

    Ho. Ho. Ho? A nice collection of Christmas horror here. The only thing that annoyed me was one of the characters changed names for just one sentence. It changed back on the next one. Overall though it was good fun.

    Some good stories, great Christmas ideas and lots of creativity, so definitely worth a read, but many are far too short and not enough horror, blood, evilness etc, etc described in them. It was as if he outlined each story but then didn't take the 'horror' content to the next level which would have seriously improved the standard and enjoyment of each one. Maybe reducing the stories from 12 to 6 but increasing their size as well as the horror aspect would be good ideas for next year or possibly Some good stories, great Christmas ideas and lots of creativity, so definitely worth a read, but many are far too short and not enough horror, blood, evilness etc, etc described in them.

Maybe reducing the stories from 12 to 6 but increasing their size as well as the horror aspect would be good ideas for next year or possibly when possibly producing an "Easter book of Horror'. A good new writer with lots of potential - will definitely be reading more of his work. Rating: 3.8 stars.

    This collection of 12 short stories was frightfully festive. While not all were my cup of eggnog I did particularly enjoy Track Santa and the clever way it was spread over 3 installments through out the book. The Christmas Card Trap was also chilling fun, as was learning what poor scrooge went through in A Christmas Carol: The Aftermath. I have just learned there is a second volume of Christmas horror stories from this author and I'm very likely to buy it as well. This collection of 12 short stories was frightfully festive.

    Well I decided to sit down and finish this fine book of tales by Rick Wood. Now I am a fan of this author, and have called him the Dan Brown of horror, because he can keep the pace of the book or story at lightening speed. It never slows down. This book is no exception. The stories in this book are so good. There was actually a few that had me laughing so hard I couldn't believe it.

Also, the stories range from a Christmas tree angel who gets revenge, a letter to Santa from a cannibal also a story where Santa has just had enough. It was just a fun gruesome fantastic read. I loved every bit of it. Get this and read it, you will not regret it.

    Festive fun! If you're looking for thought-provoking, well-written, intelligent fiction then , quite frankly, you're looking in the wrong place. If you're looking for a bunch of stories set at Christmas that are full of blood-thirsty demons and general nastiness, this book is here to fulfil your Christmas wishes. It's a collection of 12 fun, festive fables, none more than a few pages long. They're not going to change the world but they're decent enough to keep you entertained during advent.

I'm going to read volume two straight away.

    A Nice Little Book of Holiday Horrors. Mr. wood here has done a pretty good job of creating horror stories of a highly specific genre - Christmas. I've seen it done before; but these are much less over-the-top than previous collections I've perused. The tales are straightforward, pretty basic in plot and not entirely bathed in gruesomeness, as many collections of this type are. In short, they get the job done, without making you want to go looking for some really strong eggnog afterwards. A Nice Little Book of Holiday Horrors.

    Absolutely loved these twisted horror short stories about Christmas and the festive season. Great for a quick read. Shockingly gruesome Santa and a really naughty fairy.....a truly different insight to Christmas because we all know Santa is good and fairies are supposed to be nice. You'll love the book. Looking forward to more from this author. Once you read one book you'll have to read them all. Absolutely loved these twisted horror short stories about Christmas and the festive season.

    Pretty good scary Christmas stories. I really loved the Secret Santa one. Who hasn't been in an office Secret Santa and got stuck with someone they didn't care for? Who thinks Christmas stories all have to be full of love and cheer? Pretty good scary Christmas stories. I really loved the Secret Santa one.
