Stories are timeless. Once a week. Our forty-eight stories delivered in a year, will, in the words of Poets & Writers, “provide a vibrant picture of the scope and diversity of American writing.” The New Yorker made us a Digital Pick of the Week. LA Times called Storyville a Top 5 Literary Treat.

Storyville publishes one story each week to your iPhone and iPad. The stories are always with you. Take them on the bus, to the airport, in a queue, in bed, or wherever you long for escape.

Our mission is to introduce you to unforgettable stories written by the best literary authors in America today. Our writers have won Pulitzer prizes, The National Book Award, and just about every other literary recognition.

We publish new work from the best established houses: Grove/Atlantic, Penguin, W.W. Norton, Random House, Simon and Schuster, and HarperCollins. And we publish stories from new collections in bookstores put out by dynamic independent presses, including Graywolf Press, Soft Skull Press, Akashic Books, Archipelago Books, and others. We publish your favorite writers of today and yesterday, and the emerging voices of tomorrow, and we do it all with high style, and in the grand tradition, with a twist.

Some of the remarkable authors we have published: Anthony Doerr, Jennifer Egan, Jim Shepard, Charles Baxter, Tom Perrotta, Ben Greenman, Mavis Gallant, Joe Meno, Edna O'Brian, Emma Straub, Edwidge Danticat, Belle Boggs, Yiyun Li, Patricia Engel, and more.

Simply elegant! To better enjoy the simple joy of reading. It's intuitively easy, there's nothing to "learn" before using it and you don't really need an iPad or Kindle because the font size is adjustable.

Content? Great authors! (it's kinda cool to mention you're reading Kafka while commuting) And they're just the right length so you can be well-read without a huge time commitment. Plus, no dead trees ... Just my lean green reading machine.

Wow, what stories!

I was turned onto this story app by a friend. I regularly read The New Yorker and I know the quality of great contemporary short fiction. I was delighted to see that Storyville has published works by my favorite authors, including John Banville, Anthony Doerr, Jennifer Egan, Charles Baxter and others. And reading on the iphone and ipad is a great way to have the stories available whenever I have time to read. Bravo.
