A Yuletide Blog

Enjoy the epic remix of the Carol of the Bells, by Samuel Kim, as you read today’s post.

Well, it’s Christmas again. Hope your end-of-year is a good one.

Since Creepy and Hatboy saved (and destroyed) Christmas, specials have become a bit of a challenge. But let’s see if I can add just a little bit of excitement to the season this time around.

So! 2023 is coming. Will it be the year we launch into Phase 3?

Still some errors here. The Shortcut is now called The Long Way Home, and that extraneous Tales #4 should be Tales #5. But anyway.

Well, maybe not. But will it be the year we finish Phase 2? Maybe! Colouring With Contro notwithstanding.

I’m already casting my gaze forward to the Books of Pinian. Those stories aren’t necessarily Christmas stories, but there is a subtle theme of Christmas in them. I’m wondering if there’s potential for Christmas releases there, at least for one or two of them.

Christmas 2024? 2025? Who knows! It’ll be fun to find out.

Stick around, and find out with me.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/

  1. To repurpose what a taxi driver said to me just before Xmas one year as he took me home from being on the submarine for a while, you got a little drool on the ole Yule blog there, from me.
