Welcome to our collection of tales — stories, e-books, photos, videos, audio recordings and other material.

The tales are intended to cover all aspects of life — social, travel, cultural, historical and more. We’ve arranged them into categories, mostly geographic, to make it easier for you to peruse those tales of most interest to you — just choose the category from the menu.

The tales have been donated by a number of individuals and they are free for you to access on-line. If there is an associated e-book version of a tale, that too is free for you to download and enjoy, off-line, at your leisure.

If you have something that you would like to add to the website, we are always pleased to consider any contributions. Please see the ‘Contribute a tale‘ page.

Some of the tales may be ‘samplers’, or extracts from commercial products, and there may be links to where the full product, or other similar products, can be bought. If you enjoy a particular tale, or a particular contributor, please consider following their links and supporting them as an encouragement for them to donate more free tales to this site.

Please note: You are free to read, view, listen to or download any of the tales, but please remember that copyright may apply to a tale and you should respect any copyright notice contained within the content of a tale.
