Free Stories That’s the Story!

Our stories come in short, easy-to-read segments, so you can squeeze them in anytime. They’re a perfect way to start the day or wind up the evening before bed. You can discover some of the great, new writing talent out there, long before they become famous.

These are authors who write on today’s cutting edge. They’re fresh, they’re new, and they’re exciting. Read them during your morning coffee, or just after lunch. Save them for when you have a few minutes to kick back after putting the kids to bed. And best of all, there’s no charge. Whether it’s a love story or a horror story, Stories By Email is the place to find them.

Here’s how it works. Pick a category at left. Then pick an author, and look over a short example of their work. Then start reading.

From April 2002 through the summer of 2004, this website published the work of some skilled, yet unknown authors. Unfortunately, the emailed ezine program was suspended due to time-management issues. However, I will continue to maintain this site for the enjoyment of the reading public for as long as I can pay for it.

The good news is we have launched our new stories by email website, which began publication in February 2007. It is giving our authors the opportunity to publish themselves (thereby solving the time-management problem I alluded to earlier.) Our authors are typing their fingers to the bone as you read this. The other good news is that you can still read any of our hundreds of earlier stories and poems directly on this website. Choose a category at left and start browsing!

I have taken some extra time to make it easier for you to find the stories on this site that you might want to read. You will now find short descriptions of each story, as well as the ezine it originally came from.
