Santa's Amazing Mind Control Machine by McCamy Taylor

Oh boy, there's a job opening in the porn-writing field!

Seriously, though, this story is different from what I usually expect from McCamy. It's every bit as good, but . . . I'm not used to seeing her dark side.

Happy ending? Got it. Not a hard choice, given the alternatives available. Still -- some creepy stuff there.

Expertly constructed and beautifully embellished, as always.
I was raised by humans. What's your excuse?

An enjoyable happy-ending Santa story that avoids cuteness or cheap thrills. Well done.

OK, now here is the back story---when my son was about five or six, he asked how Santa could deliver all that stuff to so many people. Thinking quickly--and knowing that my son liked fantasy, science fiction and the X-Men, I told him that Santa does not really do it himself. He is psychic (like Professor X) and he gets the parents to do it for him. This explanation satisfied my son for at least another 4 or 5 years. I can not guarantee that it will work with all children---there may have been a huge component of my son wanted to believe the story because it was cool.

This story has the equally disturbing component that it's about children ... and "paying the bills". With all of those older cousins, in the internet age the young teenager stood a good chance of finding out his mother's profession.

This tale is definitely dark!
