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.

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.
This app provides the best short stories on-the-go. With Storyville, I have a well-cultivated library of all the best new (and some old) literature. I love getting these stories, reading them right away, and then reading them again and again, whether it be on a plane, on the subway, or wherever. Honestly, Storyville is a literary taste-maker!
This app is such a golden nugget to have when you travel or find some minutes to relax. On the plane, in bed, at the beach, it doesn't matter...these great stories provoke smiles and tickle the curiosity. Thanks Storyville!
