* ''[[TheLaundrySeries Overtime]]'' by Creator/CharlesStross. [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve Summoned by a belief in Santa]] an EldtrichAbomination turns up in a ventilation shaft in the Laundry on Christmas Eve. Fortunately Bob is able to temporarily satiate the monster with a plate of pies left over from the office Christmas party, giving him time to set up a banishment spell. It's mentioned that if the pies hadn't been available, the monster would have been free to run amok, as the 'summoner' wouldn't have kept the 'deal' implicit in its summoning.
