“Christmas on a Distant Planet” is here!

It is Mud Flat Press’ great pleasure to announce the publication of Christmas on a Distant Planet, a young adult sci-fi Christmas story by Jack Butler, illustrated by Gabi Clayton.

Two years ago when Jack submitted this new novel to us he said, “I’ve written a Christmas story. As far as I know, it’s the first Christmas story to tackle the theme of Christmas in a science-fictional way.”

Christmas on a Distant Planet is an edge-of-your-seat story with beautiful descriptive writing and hilariously brilliant word play by the author of Practicing Zen Without a License and Nightshade (a tale of a vampire on Mars), and 1993 Pulitzer Prize nominated Living in Little Rock with Miss Little Rock, and much more.

Rammy-Remmy de Remy is an enterprising young boy living with his scientist parents and genius little sister on a snow-covered planet in outer space. He is worried that Santa won’t be able to get to Outpost in time for Christmas, so he sets off on a wild adventurous life-threatening journey to open the Gate to let Santa in.

Available in hardcover and paperback.

  1. Some time ago, I heard from the Claytons that this book was in the process of getting published by Mud Flat Press. Based on the related enthusiasm of Alec and Gabi, believe me I have been waiting patiently to get ahold of a copy. I will be purchasing this book online right after I finish this message. The story’s premise sounds rather unique, and very charming. Honestly, just to see Gabi’s artwork alone will make this a wonderful publication, I am sure!
