The holidays have never before been more spine-tingling or more fun for tweens, teens, and adults alike than in this anthology of 13 supernatural tales. All of the stories were originally written and then read on the radio by author Fred Wiehe, primarily at Halloween and Christmas, for KKUP—a nonprofit, public radio station in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Christmas-themed stories in this anthology include: “A Gremlin for Christmas”, “Holiday Madness”, “The Three Wolf Men”, “Run, Run Rudy: A Zombie’s Not Too Far Behind”, “Santa’s War”, and “Christmas-Time Gremlins: A Sequel”. The Halloween-themed stories include: “Trick or Treat: It’s the Puppet People” (published Halloween 2007 in Sinister Tales), “Trick or Troll” (published Halloween 2008 at ShadeWorks), “The Uglies”, “The Halloween Box”, and “Ghosts, Inc.” “Raven Mocker” and “Bad Moon” – two stories for all occasions – round out the collection.

Whispers about Holiday Madness

“Wiehe’s 13 tales of holiday terror will shock and thrill you to the bone. Teens and adults alike will love the twists and turns in this collection. Not a word wasted. Great stuff!” – Nate Kenyon, author of The Bone Factory, The Reach, and Bloodstone

“Ghouls and Santa, Ghosts and Aliens—a stocking full of bloody holiday stories hung with care. Scrooges of all ages will shriek with delight!” — Del Howison, editor of the award-winning Dark Delicacies anthology series

“With Holiday Madness Fred Wiehe proves that Halloween is no longer the scariest time of the year. Holiday Madness is weird, twisted, spooky, wild and outrageous. Very highly recommended!” — Jonathan Maberry, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Ghost Road Blues, Zombie CSU, and Patient Zero
