Publisher's Summary

An Apocalyptic Christmas Short Story
Giant trapdoor spiders have launched an assault against the human race and appear to be winning the war. Civilization crumbles, and all hope begins to fade.
Nonetheless, even during these terrible times, Christmas still manages to arrive. John, trapped on a farm with his only surviving daughter, desperately tries to find a way to give his little girl some type of holiday joy. To his surprise, John soon discovers Christmas miracles might, in fact, be real as the perfect present arrives on their front doorstep.
The only problem is, he may have to race against time to salvage this miracle before the spiders snag it in their deadly traps...

They don't come down the chimneys

How do you celebrate Christmas when the world has been overrun by eight legged freaks? Very carefully. This story revolves around a man wanting to give his daughter a nice christmas, in spite of the arachnid spawned end of the world. Gray does a great jog setting up the apocolytic yuletide treat in just minutes, and sets about showing you that sometimes, the greatest gift you can give is yourself.

I really enjoyed this brief romp, and could stand to see it more fully realized in a bigger setting a novella maybe? Gray has a smart punchy style that pulls you in immediately, she hits the ground running, and hits you hard at the end. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

A great short story that will give you the creepy crawlies.
