Winter Holiday


Recommended Posts

Winter Holiday - a short story by Bruin Fisher.

Bruin Fisher brings a uniquely English feel to his stories.

I read 'Winter Holiday' when he first wrote it (under the nom de plume Sinbad): for the 'Blizzard' anthology at Gay Authors in 2006. I enjoyed it then, and enjoyed it just as much the second time around.

The great thing about 'Winter Holiday, is that being from a Yorkshire family I know the locations well.

Stylistically parts of it reminded me of Alan Bennett, the English author, playwright and actor, who is not only brilliant, but from Yorkshire too! Consequently I couldn't help but read it 'with accent'.

The 'I'm the only gay in the village' joke made me laugh, but probably won't affect those who haven't seen 'Little Britain' (if you get a chance to see it, then do!)

Bruin has split the story into five parts (for five days), but it's short enough to read in one sitting. So do! It's well worth it.
