Author Adam Pfeffer describes his new short story collection “30 Great Stories for Our Century” (published by iUniverse) as “…a collection of stories that take a rather satiric look at the world and human nature.”

Each of the stories in his collection share, or at least touch upon, the common theme of man being a flawed beast, but capable of redemption. His characters, while often readily-relatable men and women, are not always such, as is the case in “The Devil’s Christmas,” excerpted here:

“It was Christmas and the Devil had a head cold. This was nothing unusual, since he suffered from the affliction every time that hated holiday appeared once again on the calendar. To make matters worse, it was the one time during the year he was utterly powerless to influence the human race.

This Christmas, however, he had vowed to himself would be different.”

Available in both softcover and e-book, “30 Great Stories For Our Century” is available now from major online booksellers.
