Tom Chaney. December 31, 2006. Christmas violence

Of Writers and Their Books" Christmas Violence. Let fiction be our catharsis.

By Tom Chaney

I woke up this Christmas morning with plenty of time to make a couple of pots of coffee to take to our traditional family Christmas breakfast of country ham, biscuits, scrambled eggs, and the memory of Christmas past.

Whilst the coffee was brewing, I decided to finish a novel a customer had suggested that I might like. I did like. It was The Eye of the Tiger by Wilbur Smith.
