A place for stories to live

The Narratorium is all about creating an enjoyable website for readers, featuring free short fiction which you can either read online or download to your e-reader of choice. Please read and enjoy, and, most importantly for us, please spread the word about the site through your social networks!

My Books David Grigg has recently published two collections of his short stories, in both print and ebook format. Click here for more information.
