Favourite short stories for December

I thought I had more than this but in the rush of December either I didn't read as much as I thought or I lost my other review(s). Anyway I have at least:

First Draft of the Revolution, by Emily Short (commissioned, designed and coded by Liza Daly and completed by Inkle)

An interactive epistolary novel set in a pre-revolutionary magical France. A must-read just for the form; but the story is satisfying, and there are all sorts of delightful tendrils of creepiness that linger in the mind afterwards.

Wow! Slow and hard reading, and sometimes I feel like I missed something because I happened on the "intended" version without trying the other possibility first (tried to reload some chapters but it didn't really work, so I'll just go with the flow). Good that "creepy" doesn't mean "horror" this time :-)

I've long admired Emily Short's work. This one does not look like it will disappoint.
