After reading countless holiday romances, I was definitely in the mood for something…different. So I delved into the world of Christmas horror. As it turns out, a lot of Christmas horror is erotica – who knew?! But hidden amongst it all was this – twelve short stories about Krampus, Santa’s devilish counterpart.

I honestly hadn’t heard of Krampus until the 2015 Universal Pictures movie came out. But after watching it I have to admit I was interested in the lore. Krampusnacht was a good read because of its variety – stories of varying length set in a multitude of time periods and lots of different takes on the beast of lore.

There are some really great little tales in here – and some not so great. I think for me Ring Little Bell Ring was a story I wish had been longer, it was such an engaging idea, and Santa Claus and the Little Girl who Loved to Sing and Dance was so outrageous it was brilliant. I was also particularly drawn to Raw Recruits – one of the darkest stories in the anthology and definitely my kind of Yuletide horror. However I felt the weaker stories were so weak as to pull down the whole anthology.

If you’re a bit tired of the syrupy sweet, Cliff Richard themed Christmas cheer then Krampusnacht is certainly something you might want to indulge in. It’s a dark hot chocolate (with a healthy splash of something stronger!) kind of book – ideal for those dark (but not too dark!) winter nights!

I love the stories that reinvent our ancestors tales. Well worth a read but only (I think) if you have a twisted sense of humour.

The cover made it seem like it would be a collection of old stories. These are new authors/stories. Patchy collection. Nothing wrong with any of them but a bit like watching made-for-tv movies at Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just When You Thought Getting Coal Was a Bad Thing... 9 Nov. 2016
By A. Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I had never heard of Krampus and was intrigued by a being who would have an interest in those children on Santa's "bad" list. For some reason, I thought I was purchasing a book of legends, old stories about a half-forgotten Christmas legend, dusted off and presented just in time for the holidays. What I received was reminiscent of Robert Lynn Asprin's "Thieves World," where authors would share their individual visions of a world and its characters.

This is not a book of Christmas horrors; rather, I found it to be a lighthearted look at a character many of us did not know as children. If I had to rate the scariness, it is on par with Grimm's Fairy Tales. However, this is a book aimed not at children, but at adults who enjoy that feeling of Christmas and want to suspend their level of disbelief in supernatural characters, if only for a little while.

Kate Wolford has assembled a cast of wonderful writers, and each has provided readers with their view of Krampus. From the rough beast who eats those who fail him to the tavern "bookie" who invites his victims to gamble to the best buddy of good old St. Nick, these separate portrayals are sure to make you smile...and maybe cast a wary eye over your shoulder. Fun read and a definite five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good collection of Krampus stories 31 Dec. 2016
By LN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed all but two of the 12 stories, they were all well written, below is a brief synopsis of each.
First Night of Krampus: Prodigious (by having an unusual tongue and putting on a costume a man is able to become what Santa needs)
Second Night of Krampus: The Wicked Child (brothers shouldn't make their little sisters cry)
Third Night of Krampus: Marching Krampus (a young girl is befriended by Krampus)
Forth Night of Krampus: Peppermint Sticks (Mr K has a new assistant, one who doesn't particularly like his boss or his job)
Fifth Night of Krampus, Ring, Little Bell, Ring (a slow building horror story of a woman who falls in love with a man and then finds out who and what he really is, I didn't particularly like this story)
Sixth Night of Krampus: A Visit (a man gets a well deserved Christmas visit)
Seventh Night of Krampus: Santa Claus and the Little Girl Who Loved to Sing and Dance (There are some kids so horrible so nasty so selfish and mean spirited *fyi I HATED this story)
Eighth Night of Krampus (be careful choosing how you die)
Ninth Night of Krampus: Nothing to Dread (a little boy catches Krampus and changes his town forever)
Tenth Night of Krampus: Raw Recruits (Krampus needs people to make switches and one recruit makes certain he will have many new raw recruits)
Eleventh Night of Krampus: God Killer (a man goes on trial for killing Krampus)
Twelfth Night of Krampus: A Krampus Carol (a retired highway patrolmen gets the Krampus treatment tjat he and others often gave out)

5.0 out of 5 stars As twisted as a goat's horn 7 Dec. 2015
By Robin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Great Krampus stories to darken the darkest month of the year. A fine book to serve as companion reading to the current "The Krampus" movie playing now in local theaters, these stories have as many twists, and as sharp a point, as a goat's horn.

4.0 out of 5 stars Christmas Eve stories for the rest of us. 28 Dec. 2016
By Joy Ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Krampusnacht has some very high points. Unfortunately, not all the stories hit the high marks. The anthology idea is good though and definitely a different twist on holiday stories. In general, its a good read on a Christmas Eve.
