Dave Hartley – The Jesus Placenta

For our second First Draft Friday, we’re sharing a short story from the talented and often macabre Dave Hartley, who was one of the earliest contributors to First Draft and has performed at many of our events. Follow the conversation on Twitter, using #FirstDraftFridays.

Watch part of Dave’s set from our Christmas event, No More Comfort Zone, in which he reads one of his wonderfully grim festive stories, The Jesus Placenta, here:

You can also read the full story here on Dave’s Christmas blog, which celebrated the release of his second collection of Christmas stories, Merry Gentlemen, by giving us a special treat for every day of advent.

If you like Dave’s work (or if you hate it, and you just want to tell him so), you can find much more of it on his excellent blog, Rabbiting On, or follow him on Twitter: @DHartleyWriter.

If so inclined, you can buy his stuff (for Kindle or the good old-fashioned paper versions) here.
