The 2016 Short Story Advent Calendar is available now!


The Box: 2016 Short Story Advent Calendar

This year’s stories once again come from some of your favourite writers across the continent—plus a couple of new crushes you haven’t met yet. Most of the stories have never appeared in a book before. Some have never been published, period.

The 2016 Short Story Advent Calendar includes stories from:

  • Anakana Schofield (Martin John)
  • Daniel Handler (Adverbs, Lemony Snicket)
  • Sheila Heti (How Should a Person Be?)
  • Charles Demers (Vancouver Special, CBC’s The Debaters)
  • Katie Coyle (Vivian Apple at the End of the World)
  • plus [redacted x 19]!

Like last year, the calendar is available in a one-time print run, which means that once it’s gone, it’s gone forever. Each chapbook is sealed, so you won’t know what story you’re getting until the morning you open it. The collection also includes a gorgeous full-colour slipcase—the better to be displayed on your shelves, or those of someone you love, for years to come.

The Cost: $55 CAD = $41.65 USD

Shipping: Within Canada and the U.S. – $15 CAD for one calendar, $25 CAD for two, $30 CAD  for three, $35 CAD for four, and $40 CAD for five.

The Products: Twenty-four individually sealed stories in a full-color slipcase.

Are you grabbing one of these?

And check out all of the 2016 Advent Calendars available!

  1. I ordered this. Remember it is listed under Canadian prices. Mine came to 53. and some change including the shipping to Austin, Texas. What a cool idea for an advent calendar- besides the candy. This might be good to get yearly. It looks like it is a yearly advent calendar with different stories. Thanks for sharing about this advent calendar. I am looking forward to receiving my calendar. It will be hard not to peak or cheat.

  2. I’m intrigued by this so even though I love my e-reader, I placed an order. I’m looking forward to receiving it. I’d also like to vouch for this company’s excellent customer service. I made a goofy mistake and forgot to include my apartment number in my shipping address. I emailed the company and heard back from them literally two minutes later offering to rectify the mistake, which they did immediately. Doesn’t get better than that!

  3. Liz, Ulta’s 12 Days of Christmas Calendar is on their site now.

    • Oooh – thank you so much for the head’s up!

  4. Oh wow! I love this idea. Will definitely get one!

  5. I love this idea!! Hopefully will be able to get on this one come payday!
