Zombie Elves
by Sue Penkivech

“Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.”

As my response, I shot Douglas the dirtiest look I could muster. I recognized the reference to the classic 2D film of course. It had recently been redone in our own time/space by an Alpha Centauri tri-D company and had been critically acclaimed, though personally I thought it would have been improved by leaving out the Centaurian equivalent of a Greek chorus. Still, far be it from me to quibble over the cultural preferences of alien races. I had troubles enough of my own, here and now.

“I realize that,” I retorted with a roll of my eyes, choosing not to dignify Douglas’ reference with further commentary. “It’s the rest that I’m finding difficult to believe.” Granted, we’d encountered some odd attempts to alter the history of Earth time/space 227, but this had to be the most ridiculous yet.
