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!

Hello All 1001 Fans-


We're announcing a contest that starts now and lasts through 6pm June 15th (EST), the purpose of which is to drive new Premium Member Subscriptions AND promote our new Kindle e-Books. It's also a way of saying thank you to all you members who stayed with us after we dropped the paywall, which, by the way was 100%- all of you stayed, plus, we have new members coming aboard. Our Premium Members get regular updates from me regarding shows we're working on, books (E-book and audio) we are releasing, and anything else that comes to mind. All our Premium Members invest 2.99/month to support our show, and we appreciate the loyalty.

On June 16th, the e-mail addresses of all our 1001 Premium Member Subscribers will go in a hat and we'll draw one winner- and contact you asking for an address I can send the Amazon order to. If you live in a place/city/country/hut that can get a delivery from Amazon- you're eligible. If your city/state has other limitations I'll work something out with you. 

If you're broke or too old or young to pledge the 2.99, and using someone else's Internet to catch our show, email me at with "Contest Entry" ,tell me a little about yourself, and I'll drop your name in the hat.
