A Very Klingon Christmas

A VERY KLINGON KHRISTMAS, Paul Ruditis, illustrated by Patrick Faricy, Gallery Books, $16.99, ISBN: 9781476746807, reviewed by Barry Hunter.

If you are a Star Trek fan, add this Klingon telling of the birth of Kahless and how the very special Khristmas holiday is observed on Qo’noS and all over the Klingon held planets.

Grab a tankard of hot mulled blood wine and learn of Santa Qlas, who really has retractable claws and leaves tribbles in the stockings of the honorless. A good child may find a disruptor or a mek’leth as he travels by transporter beam to the next house on his star chart.

Ruditis and Faricy have a great job in putting this together and it will be a terrific surprise to find this under the tree. I think it would be a whole lot better than a tribble – don’t you.
