Santa Claus Conquers the Homophobes has received its first review, in
The Harrow
, and it's a good 'un.


"The premise concerns Santa's immortal stepdaughter Wendy using her
talents to see into the futures of the children of the world and seeing
the promise of one life snuffed out due to homophobia and intolerance.
At her behest, Santa sends up an entry to God himself to intervene and
save young Jamie Stratton's life. Working through Archangel Michael,
God allows Santa and Wendy–with the help of the happily castrated
Easter Bunny–to visit those whose intolerance will lead to Jamie's
ultimate suicide in an attempt to persuade them to change their ways
and embrace diversity. The Tooth Fairy gets wind of his plans and does
everything within her power to stop him."

"The Tooth Fairy [is] one of the most delightfully wicked villains in
any book I've read in the past five years, a creation that can cause
other writers to feel a mixture of admiration and jealousy that they
didn't come up with a character that much fun and evil."

"a wonderful mix of ancient mythology and childhood icons . . a hell of
an accomplishment . . . startlingly original and daring"
