The Last Christmas Present

 


I was going through some of my old papers the other day, and I ran across a yellowed newspaper article that contained my first published story. Since it was a Christmas tale, I thought I’d share it with you here on my blog as the holiday season ramps up. The story was published in 1982, only a few days after my eighteenth birthday. The picture above is my senior class photo, and it accompanie

“No lawyers in Nekropolis. They're too scary even for this city.”
Tim Waggoner, The Nekropolis Archives

“It was a weird feeling knowing that people were looking to me for help – and frustrating too. You save the damn city a couple times, and suddenly everyone expects miracles from you.”
Tim Waggoner, The Nekropolis Archives

“By the way," Devona asked, "how did Lazlo know to come get us?"   "I have no idea. Sometimes he just shows up when I need him."   "That's odd," she said.   I laughed. "You're a half-human vampire who's asked a zombie ex-cop to help you track down a stolen magic crystal – and you think Lazlo's odd?”
Tim Waggoner, The Nekropolis Archives
