Blurb from Goodreads
This past February 4th, Neil Gaiman and Blackberry kicked off the joint #KeepMoving venture. For twelve hours, Gaiman released writing prompts through his Twitter account, themed for the twelve months of the year, with the intent of writing Calendar of Tales, a collection of new original stories based on his favorite responses.
And now those stories are here!

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 can be another good twist of genie story
And love December story because I love @neilhimself follower’s tweet and how he created it into an inspiring short story.
But I also love other stories, especially February, because there is Indonesia folklore similar to this story.
And July, I like the idea of igloo of books
Result: 4 of 5 stars
