So, the daemons kidnap Claus, and then one of them promptly lets him go. A bit anti-climactic, but Baum sort of has a history of underwhelming endings. Still a nice little story, though.
In any event, that's it for this year. I'm skipping tomorrow and next week for the holidays, so I'll see you guys in 2011. January 3rd, to be exact. Merry Christmas, or whatever the hell else you happen to celebrate. It's all good to me.
