    10. 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 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 problem I have [...]

    11. 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.

    15. 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 complet [...]

    16. 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 whole m [...]

    17. 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 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 they have [...]

    18. 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 fell in [...]

    19. 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 and [...]

    20. 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.

    21. 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.

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

    24. 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 against the c [...]
