A New Yuletide Classic Featuring the World's Deadliest Mexican
The world owes a huge debt of gratitude to Johnny Shaw for “discovering” a new story by the brilliant Brace Godfrey, featuring Chignón, the World’s Deadliest Mexican. “Feliz Navidead” appears in CRUEL YULE: HOLIDAY TALES OF CRIME FOR PEOPLE ON THE NAUGHTY LIST, recently released from the gentle folks at THUGLIT. It’s a simple, heartwarming, sentimental, timely and inspirational tale that reduced me to tears within the first few paragraphs. A cynical person, like that Jay Stringer guy, for example, might insist that the tears were flowing so freely down my cheeks only because I was laughing so hard as the story unfolded. But that would be wrong. This is a story that drills deep down into the holiday spirit and captures the true meaning of Christmas as few others do. Chignón now takes his rightful place in the pantheon of Holiday Superstars like St. Nick, Charlie Brown and Tiny Tim. This is a story that generations of readers will return to over and over again as a part of their most sacred holiday traditions. Thanks again, Mr. Shaw, for this most precious gift.
