“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.
The fourth annual Short Story Advent Calendar might have been 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). The 2018 edition featured a special diecut lid and textured case. We also set a new personal best for material that has never before appeared in print.
Contributors to the 2018 Short Story Advent Calendar included:
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]!
We were also excited to announce a limited run of 25 copies that featured a black slipcase with hand-drawn illustrations by Calgary-based artists Cam Hoff and Chris Pecora at Slugger Studio. These sets were each hand-numbered, signed by the artists, and one of a kind.
