The Santa Claus Machine by G. B. Pool



In order to modernize his image, Santa builds a series of Santa robots that are sent to stores around the world. They are programmed to tell Santa’s stories and record children’s wishes. An unscrupulous sales manager at the largest department store chain in America along with their computer engineer, kidnap the real Santa and hide him in an ice cave. They reprogram the Santa Claus Machines to encourage children to ask for more and more toys. When Santa learns about the change, he becomes disheartened and thinks he might have to cancel Christmas.

Thanks so much for inviting me today, Marilyn. I have found some new authors because of your blog, some in genres I wouldn't have looked for but am I glad I discovered them. Have a Merry Christmas.
