  • These tales are the result of one hell of a collaboration, Neil Gaiman, through his and his fans tweets managed to write twelve amazing short stories, here are the questions and their answers, I'll leave it to you to discover the stories my favorite was the "October Tale"


  • I enjoyed this story that he used prompts for each month to tell. This is also in Trigger Warning. Good stuff.


  • Neil Gaiman collaborated with millions of his fans as a part of Blackberry's Keep Moving Project and the result is phenomenal, humbling, and beautiful in every which way.Gaiman began the project by asking his twitter followers a simple series of questions related to the months of the year. The stories were inspired by the following responses:1.“Why is January so dangerous?” @zyblonius replied: “Because an aging veteran just retired, to be replaced by a dangerously unqualified youth, no mor [...]


  • This was wonderful flash fiction stories based on ideas sent to Neil Gamin. Some of the stories are dark and some are hilarious.


  • Quick review(view spoiler)[More soonon(view spoiler)[My soon get it? XD (hide spoiler)] q: (hide spoiler)]So I was up all night till 5 a.m. today and the last thing I read was the story of November. Kept the December tale for today(day-time) :)Aaaannd, loved this little book. :D Especially that story of the igloo of books :D And not to mention the genie and the wishes. And the art, coolio! :DPlus points for cat illustrations ^.^Weirdly enough, my nightmare was inspired from this book. :/ No worr [...]


  • What a fantastic idea this is! In a collaboration with Blackberry Neil tweeted various questions relating to each month of the year and then chose one response for each month and turned it into a story. And what a fantastic bunch of stories they are too! There's an igloo made of bricks, a genie who doesn't get to make any wishes and some ducks who get their revenge. Every story is something different- they are funny, heart-warming, mysterious and generally brilliant. This short collection really [...]


  • Listened to it from Neil Gaiman's voice and he made each and every tale much more magical. My favorite tales are October and January, though I loved them all ^^


  • Five stars! Because it's Neil. Fucking. Gaiman, because it's so good, and because it's FREE!!Yes, folks, it's Neil Gaiman and it's free. I'm bouncing happily on my seat when I got this, so I'll let you bounce happily on your seat, too. Go to this link to download. keepmovingberry/deskAs expected from Neil Gaiman, my top fantasy writer, this anthology starts with simple ideas but turned it into beautiful stories. He tweets questions about months in a year and then the favorite answers would be tu [...]


  • I love the fighting spouse story because i find it very rare and funny. And the igloo made from books. Can i have that? With the condition that it has bare roof so i can watch stars at night. But my most favourite story will be October. About the djinn. But it reminds me of him. 'orang paling kaya adalah orang yang merasa cukup dengan apa yang dia ada'. So, i have mixed feelings after that to like it or not. Then, comes November. My favourite month. The story was ok. But, the idea was very urgh [...]


  • Isn't Neil Gaiman wonderful? A collection of tales, grown from a Twitter experiment - Neil asked a question for each month and then write a story based on the responses from other users - a fabulous collaboration that I'd like to see more of.As with all of Mr Gaiman's short stories some are funny, some are sweet, some are melancholy, and all of them stay with you after you've finished with them, little images or moments from each popping up like thought bubbles every now and then.The only proble [...]


  • سمعت نسختهم الصوتية بصوت نيل جايمان نفسه.عرفت عن الكتيب ده بالصدفة البحتة. أول قصة اتكعبلت فيها كانتJuly Taleوهي اللي خلتني أجيب الكتيب صوتي ومقروء علشان أستمتع بيه.نييل جايمان من أروع الناس اللي ممكن تخوض عوالم مافيش غيره يعرف يخوضها ويطرقها زيه.



  • Never, not for one moment, can you point out while reading these twelve, brilliant, short stories, that each of them are written by the same author. Hat tip, Mr. Gaiman, and all my respect.


  • Neil Gaiman has embarked on an interesting project with A Calendar of Tales (ebook). The monthly stories are useful for teachers who would like to utilise ebook environments for students because it demonstrates how creativity with digital literature can be collaborative. A collaborative approach to writing with ebooks can maintain an engagement with literacy on a deeper level for students. Gaiman (2013) argues that fiction is an important aspect of education systems that seek to promote cultural [...]


  • I always amazed with author's inspiration for their stories. They said it can be from anywhere but sometimes I wonder how they create words in to become a story from the inspiration they get. Neil Gaiman is one of authors who keep amazed me, including in his collaboration with BlackBerry. How can he created short stories from limited Twitter characters sent by his followers is beyond my imagination. My favorites are October and December stories. I love October story because it’s so sweet and c [...]


  • <3Egy hónap – egy történet, a történet végén egy rajongó által készített illusztráció meg Neil kérdése és a válasz, ami megihlette. Zseniális! Imádom! Nagyon jópofák lettek ezek a röpke novellák és úgy vannak megírva, hogy szinte átragad az olvasóra a hangulatuk. ~– Januárban démonokra vadásztunk a kölyökkel és Tizenkettővel. – Februárban kislányok voltunk egy monokróm tengerparton, akik nyakláncokkal „játszottak”. – Márciusban kalózhajóz [...]


  • I had not heard about this unique book/project till i picked it up. It was in February, 2013 when Neil Gaiman collaborated with Blackberry for his Keep Moving project in a way which no one had ever done. He took 12 hours and released questions via Twitter, pertaining to the 12 months of the year, intending to write a collection of short stories based on his favorite responses.He wrote all 12 stories in the span of three days and two days after recording the audio versions, the stories were compl [...]


  • I'm generally a Gaiman fan, and his skill definitely comes shining through in these twelve short tales. Having watched the whole thing transpire via Twitter, I know that these were conceived of and written extremely quickly. Nonetheless, the stories do read pretty well overall, and I have nothing but respect for the author who can do that on such short notice. Plus, I just plain think the whole concept is pretty damned cool.ButYes, there's a but. The thing is Some of these "prompts" are almost w [...]


  • Only one of the stories really resonated with me. October--the story about the djiin.The others were either forgettable or had neat elements or ideas but didn't have the cohesive impact that I normally attribute to Neil's short stories. Perhaps flash fiction isn't his forte. Perhaps he should have taken more time to write them. Perhaps writing from prompts was never a good idea to begin with. Whatever the case these stories live up to my expectations of one my favorite authors only in so much as [...]


  • This was one of those Gaiman type of ideas. He asked people to respond on twitter to a series of questions about each month. He chose to write a short story to accompany each answer, picking the ones that fired his imagination. He gave himself three days to write them all. And gets corporate sponsorship from Blackberry to do it.Other people contributed their own responses in various art forms.This was the post on his blog:I chose the twelve tweets (actually -- with one exception, March, which I [...]


  • I got this as part of the 2016 Humble Bundle. It is a revised edition published in 2016 with illustrations by Paul Roman Martinez, and it is a real treat.The booklet includes twelve (very) short month themed stories, which Gaiman wrote by asking twelve month themed question on his Twitter, selecting his favorite answer for each question, and writing a story inspired by that answer. Paul Roman Martinez illustrated each story for the revised edition.Like the original release, the question, answer [...]


  • This is the project that arose out of Neil Gaiman's collaboration with Blackberry. Gaiman released twelve questions on Twitter, one each for the months of the year. For example, "Why is January so dangerous?" He wrote short stories based on his favourite responses. While the link between the stories and the initial prompts is unclear, this a nice collection that contains one or two really good stories.


  • I read this collection previously, in one of Gaiman's short story anthologies, but today I read the illustrated version. I enjoyed the stories even upon a second reading, and the illustrations are excellent.


  • Una premessa straordinaria che ha dato luogo a dei racconti quantomeno piacevoli da leggersi - anche a piccoli sorsi -.


  • 1) January Tale: 3*2) February Tale: 4-*3) March Tale: 5*4) April Tale5) May Tale6) June Tale7) July Tale8) August Tale9) September Tale10) October Tale11) November Tale12) December Tale


  • January Tale: Out of context from the inspiring tweet, this story wasn't one I fully grasped; it just seemed like the beginning of a story, caught up in the end of a story not fully told. But I guess that's the entire point of the January tale, since that's what the beginning of the New Year is all about. January is the tipping point as the past is remembered and carried forward into the beginning of the future. Gaiman toys with the metaphysics of time as his warriors (new and old) battle agains [...]


  • A Calendar of Tales is an interesting example of digital literature created through collaboration (Skains, 2010). In this case, well-known author Neil Gaiman collaborated with his readers to create twelve short stories. Using Twitter, over twelve hours he asked his (Twitter) followers to answer a series of questions, one for each month of a year. On selecting an answer for each month, he then set about writing a short story for each of those answers. Following the release of his stories (audio a [...]


  • “A Calendar of Tales” by Neil Gaiman is a collaboration between followers on Twitter, artists who provided the illustrations and Blackberry. The text is based on questions posed to Gaiman who then created short stories, twelve in total, to follow the months of the year. These were then illustrated by different individuals giving each chapter / month a unique identity whilst the narrative style binds the text together. A charming feature for each month is not only the question that provided t [...]


  • This book is just a beautiful example of how art can expand and grow with technology. Looking for a way to collaborate on a massive scale with all of his artsy fans, Neil Gaiman (with Blackberry) came up with this brilliant idea:A Calendar of Tales, one for each month. For twelve hours he teweeted questions like "Tell me something you lost in September that meant a lot to you.” or “Who would you like to see again in December?”. The answers were smart, funny, touching.To “If August could [...]


  • Few nights ago, Mr. Gaiman - @neilhimself posted on his twitter about a project he's doing with blackberry. He was asking his followers 12 question related with months in a year and one of each answers would be the inspiration of his calendar of tales. I was ended up reading until late night (and the day after) for these answers. Some were funny, some were heart breaking, some were heart warming, some were even bizzare - in every good ways. Surely I wasn't the only one that got hook by these. On [...]
