Kez's Christmas Advent Calendar - Day 10: Flake




We gathered 12 writers from the H&C community and let them dip their hands into our Secret Santa bucket. From the bucket each writer pulled out a word, and from that word, they were asked to write and narrate a very, very short story.

Today’s word was… Snowball.

And the story is Flake.

Written and narrated by Dan Howarth (

Edited by Karl Hughes (

With evil Christmas music by Duncan Muggleton (

Along with a seasonal spin on the original The Other Stories theme by Thom Robson (

Dan Howarth is a writer from the North of England. His debut collection Dark Missives hit shelves in 2021 and he has several books due for release in 2022. Like all Northerners, Dan enjoys heavy rain, pies and drinking blood from the skulls of his enemies.
