Welcome to 1001 Classic Short Stories and Tales Audio Podcast!  This is a hand-picked collection of favorites from writers like Jack London, Louisa May Alcott, Hans Christian Anderson, Edgar Allen Poe, Rudyard Kipling, and many more. I narrate the stories and often add background music and sound effects to bring the stories to life. These are suitable for the entire family, enjoyed by all ages and levels of literary experience, and often make great discussion starters for students who are just getting exposed to literature. 

1001 now has an App! It is "1001 STORIES NETWORK" and it is now at the IOS Apple App Store, just search it. It will be at Android App Store and Amazon App store very soon. It is free. It combines all 3 of our shows, 1001 Heroes, 1001 Classic Short Stories, and 1001 Stories For the Road. It also offers a Premium Membership offering access to all shows, and all shows are ad-free.

We are asking all 1001 fans to become premium members to support 1001 going forward. Its $2.99/month. The link is here:  

For all of you who love a good story, we hope you come back again and again, and please share our show with others!

Hey Everyone-

We're announcing a new contest which starts now and runs through June 15th. The purpose is threefold- 1, to thank all our Premium Member Subscribers for their loyalty (100% stayed with us after we took down the premium wall), 2- to promote our new Amazon Kindle e-books by giving away a Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader), and 3- to drive new subscriptions to our show.

If you subscribe by June 15th (link below) , and you live within delivery range of Amazon, you're eligible. (Check your state and local rules.)

On June 15th at 6pm we will draw one Premium Member Subscriber name from a hat and notify you that you have just won our contest and will be receiving a brand new Amazon Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader with a 6" Hi-Res display, wi-fi, and a built-in light for easy reading, as well as an optional power adapter and 3 months of free Kindle e-books.

I wear glasses and it is a pain to read- so i use a lighted Kindle reader, and my access to information and reading enjoyment (especially classic short stories) is incredible.  I thought it would make a great contest prize. 

Become a Premium Member Subscriber (2.99/mo) Paypal or Credit Card Here:

If you're broke and listening to our show on someone else's Internet, or too old or too young or whatever, email me at and mark it "CONTEST ENTRY" and I'll drop it in the hat for you. And take a moment to tell me a little bit about yourself.
