Give the gift of a short story advent calendar this Christmas
I love the idea of a short story advent calendar so much I had to write about it for The Province.
So it was with great delight that I learned of the 2015 Short Story Advent Calendar, a boxed set of 24 individually bound stories by Canadian writers. The set includes works from such bold voices as Zsuzsi Gartner, Pasha Malla and “others.” Creators Michael Hingston and Natalie Olsen don’t want to reveal all the writers involved just yet — it’s an advent calendar, after all.
“The rest of the lineup is a surprise,” says Hingston in an interview with The Province. “The stories are all individually sealed, with no identifying information on the covers aside from what day of the month you’re going to open it on. So each day’s story is a surprise right up until the moment you open it.”
