Atavist is a home for original fiction and nonfiction. Inside the app you’ll find stories and books from award-winning writers, including our monthly publication of longform journalism, The Atavist, and titles from Atavist Books, with novels, novellas, and full-length nonfiction books. Each one is a cinematic reading experience; we use our own Creatavist software platform to layer in video, audio, maps, and more.

From the true story of a band of high school students turned drug smugglers, to a fictional future blighted by an insomnia epidemic, Atavist offers original stories you won’t find anywhere else.

Beyond great characters and unforgettable yarns, you’ll find:
- Audiobook versions; alternate between reading and listening
- Exclusive images, video, photos, maps, and timelines
- Original musical soundtracks
...and more.
