Look what came in the mail today! Yes, 'tis the season once again for short stories. Last year I indulged in the Short Story Advent Calendar and enjoyed it so much I had to repeat the experience. I was a little tardy in ordering, so I missed the first official day of Advent on Sunday (though it looks like technically the stories were to be opened beginning December 1), but I am hoping to catch up on the stories I missed quickly so get back on the daily short story schedule. I am hoping this will help me get into the spirit of the season, at least in a bookish way.
I am going to try and not cheat by opening a new story until each previous day's story has been opened and read. I guess this means I had best get reading. Story #1 is . . . (spoiler alert, just in case you are going to read, too) by Laird Hunt called "The Face".
