Lancer Writers List Advent Calendar

A few years ago, the Lancer Writers list ran an advent calendar themed around Christmas, a mix of stories, articles about Christmas traditions, recipes and crafts. While the stories were added to the archives, the rest was compiled into a (rather hefty!) .pdf file, which you can download from this link.



Our usual monthly update will be published at the end of the month. In the meantime, enjoy a little Advent Lancer!
