“This collection of short stories is perfect for cozying up by the fire.”
“One of Edmonton’s cleverest literary traditions has grown into an international affair.”
“Will improve your brain without rotting your teeth.”
Fourth time’s the charm.
After a restful spring, rowdy summer, and pretty reasonable fall, we are officially back at it again with another deluxe box set of 24 individually bound short stories to get you into the yuletide spirit.
The fourth annual Short Story Advent Calendar might be our most ambitious yet, with a range of stories hailing from eight different countries and three different originating languages (don’t worry, we got the English versions). This year’s edition features a special diecut lid and textured case. We also set a new personal best for material that has never before appeared in print.
(This is a non-religious box set of literary short stories for adults. Read our Frequently Asked Questions page here.)
Contributors to the 2018 Short Story Advent Calendar include:
Kevin Barry (Beatlebone, City of Bohane)
Ben Greenman (What He’s Poised to Do, Don Quixotic)
Etgar Keret (Suddenly, a Knock on the Door)
R. O. Kwon (The Incendiaries)
Sara Levine (Treasure Island!!!)
and [REDACTED x 19]!
This year we're also excited to announce a limited run of 25 copies that feature a black slipcase with hand-drawn illustrations by Calgary-based artists Cam Hoff and Chris Pecora at Slugger Studio. These sets are hand-numbered, signed by the artists, and one of a kind.
Find all this, plus a special bundle rate if you order the 2018 and 2017 calendars together, in the H&O store.
