Overtime

Hermetic Library Fellow T Polyphilus reviews Overtime by Charles Stross.

I would say this free short story on the Tor.com site is the least of all the Laundry Files stories I’ve read, truly a mere “stocking stuffer” compared with the gifts Stross usually delivers in the novels of this series. Still, it’s a nice little holiday card, and converting Santa into Cthrampus is a neat trick. If my daughter were a little younger, I’d be tempted to menace her with warnings about the Filler of Stockings. No, it’s best that she’s older–old enough to get the joke, even.
