My featured story ‘Yukizuki’ was heavily inspired by the long Hokkaido winters during the 3 years I lived in Japan as well as my love of yokai.
Margrét Helgadóttir was a dream editor and a lovely person whom I hope to work with again soon. As well as my Asian-inspired story, there are some brilliant stories and poems from the likes of Ruth Booth, James Bennett and Adrian Tchaikovsky.
Because I’m not the best photographer, I asked my friend, Ross Cole-Hunter, for his best photos of Hokkaido snowboarders to get you all in the mood.
The weather is perfect for snuggling up in a chair with a hot chocolate and a good book.
Full contents of Winter Tales after the photos.
