Steve Hockensmith is the author of the “Holmes on the Range” mysteries starring Sherlock Holmes-worshiping cowboys “Big Red” and “Old Red” Amlingmeyer. The first book in the series was a finalist for the Edgar, Shamus, Anthony and Dilys Awards, and the fourth, The Crack in the Lens, was a finalist for the Nero. Last year, Hockensmith’s novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls managed to slip onto the New York Times extended best-seller list (and irritate a lot of Jane Austen fans in the process). This year, Hockensmith concluded the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trilogy with Dreadfully Ever After. Before turning his attention to novels, Hockensmith was a prolific writer of short fiction. His mystery stories were nominated for nearly every major award in the field (including the Anthony, Shamus, Barry, Macavity and Derringer) and appeared in several year's best anthologies. He is not an egomaniac, not matter what this bio might make you think.

Steve Hockensmith is a master of dark comedy. This book really is hilarious. It's the perfect antidote to holiday overload. It has fun with all the holiday hoopla, without ever being bitter or mean-spirited. It's a great holiday read.
