On The Feast of Stephen-Shownotes

Submitted by DJ Burnham on Sunday 1st December 2013

(On The Feast of Stephen was written in September 2007 on the Greek island of Milos. This is its first appearance.)

There are many aspects to Christmas. One of them is the potential to generally overdo things - that was the starting point for this story.

The original artwork shows Stephen Wren's neon 'House Bling', an alien knife and fork, and the date set for Boxing Day..
