William Shakespeare's Christmas Carol

A Novella by

Humbug, forsooth! In William Shakespeare's Christmas Carol, you'll experience Dickens' classic tale with a new (Oliver) twist. Ebenezer Scrooge is a wealthy theater owner with a stingy heart, until he's visited by his old partner Marlowe. The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future become Puck (A Midsummer Night's Dream), Falstaff (the Henry V plays), and the Ghost of King Hamlet. Benedick and Beatrice Cratchit worry about their child Tiny Tim, and other familiar characters fill out the cast in this Shakespearean adaptation of your holiday favorite, all in iambic pentameter. Bard bless us, every one!
