Back in February, Neil Gaiman teamed up with BlackBerry as part of the Keep Moving Projects. His goal was to create a series of short stories, one for each calendar month. Along the way he solicited fans for ideas and artwork to help along the journey of writing each short story. The end result is the amazing series of stories entitled A Calendar of Tales.
On February 4th 2013 Neil Gaiman embarked on a fantastic art project in partnership with BlackBerry and millions of his fans. He tweeted twelve questions to the world, one for each month of the year. From the tens of thousands of responses he received, Neil picked his favourite answers and wrote twelve short stories inspired by them. Releasing these back to the world, Neil asked people to contribute art to illustrate the stories.
The project has now come to a close and, if you haven't already, you can read all of the stories yourself. Or if you prefer, you can listen to the audio version of each read by Mr. Gaiman himself.Â
I've been over the entire series a few times now and it really is amazing work. BlackBerry fans all over deserve credit for their contributions that made A Calendar of Tales what it is.Â
