spec fic advent

I know it’s late, but I love advent calendars.  When I use them, I feel like the days before Christmas slow down and feel more full of what the season is actually about.  However, I have limited time.  I need something I can put together fast.  What sold me on this calendar was the fact that it had a Storm Trooper icon.  I’ll probably choose the nativity scene but it’s nice to know I have the option for my husband and boys.  (They will love it!)  Then again, I may mine it for ideas and do like I did a couple years ago, putting a different activity into twenty-four decorated envelopes.  We’ll see how much time I have today.

In looking at the printable, convertible calendar linked above though, I wondered if anyone had thought of making a speculative fiction advent calendar.  If not, I thought maybe it might be fun to use this calendar to make my own.  After a brief Google search to see what I could find, I discovered that the UK magazine Interzone is indeed doing a spec fic advent calendar this year.  (The link takes you to their Latest News page.)

That’s it for now.  Enjoy!

(BTW, I don’t get any compensation or reward for mentioning Interzone or linking to them.)
