Author Kyle Sullivan recommends books that "deliver holiday magic with a dark twist"
Shepherd is a website dedicated to helping readers discover new books through author recommendations. They recently asked author Kyle Sullivan to recommend a genre of books he's very familiar with: books that deliver holiday magic with a dark twist. Head over to Shepherd to read Kyle's recommendations and rationales for the books that were important to his development of the shadowy, folklore-based holiday world of the middle-grade chapter book, Krampus Confidential.
From nonfiction works like The Krampus and the Old, Dark Christmas: Roots and Rebirth of the Folkloric Devil by Al Ridenour to the 1932 Icelandic classic Christmas Is Coming by Jóhannes úr Kötlum, these recommendations run the gamut of deliciously dark holiday fun.
