#3 - How I Learned The Truth About Krampus

by Tom Johnstone

Eibonvale Press - How I Learned The Truth About Krampus by Tom Johnstone

38 pages

Published December 2017

Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure of legend with a classic half-goat half-demonic appearance.  The night of the 5th December is Krampusnacht, when this hairy devil appears on the streets – on his own or accompanying St. Nicholas, but always carrying a bundle of birch twigs ready to punish those who have misbehaved.  At least, that’s how the folk-festivals that take place across Europe go.  The truth may be stranger still.  This is a sharp and intelligently written horror story that delves deep into seasonal mythology and folk legend.  An atmospheric and chilling tale of the dark side of the winter season.
