Fiction you can fit in your pocket!

How many of us LOVE reading but struggle to find the time to fit it in to our ever growing busy schedules? Here at Pocket Fiction we strive to bring you quality short stories from a diverse bunch of new and upcoming authors. They are so pocket-sized, you can read a whole story from start to finish in the same amount of time it takes to drink your morning cup of coffee! Sound good?

You’ll find an eclectic mix of genres here so you’ll be sure to find something for you to get lost in. The idea is that you can just pull your smartphone out of your pocket and enjoy a short story on your coffee break – from work, home schooling, life, whatever! Each story tells you at the top how many minutes it will take you to read, so if you only have 5 minutes, you can pick one to finish in one quick sitting. 

“Short stories are tiny windows into other worlds and other minds and other dreams.”

~ Neil Gaiman
Fiction you can carry around in your pocket
and read on your coffee break!
