Short stories are not books. If you wanted novels, check out our Books section. No, short stories are tightly packaged delights that intend to create a whirlwind of emotions in a very short period of time. That means they should pique your interest and get you engaged, and leave you either satisfied or wanting more at the end. Here you can see snippets of some of those amazing short stories, collections of short stories and even free ones! We enjoy keeping our readers engaged and entertained, and no large collection full of variety is complete without a few free things, right?
Additionally, as short stories commonly take less time to write (there are exceptions to the rule of course), you might find a larger and wider selection here. While not necessarily taking requests, we always appreciate your input and feedback, and generally just love hearing from you. So feel free to contact us if there’s something you would like to see; we always appreciate your feedback and input.

Suzy Q: A perfect story to get in the mood for the Halloween season, or if you just feel like getting freaked out. Or if you just want to really freak out someone you know (we’re not judging).
