About Season of Stories

For a limited time in the fall and winter of 2016, we emailed eleven fiction tales directly to readers, all written in the first person. Readers could dive into a great story when a quick escape from daily stress was needed. Our mission was to make your inbox a better place with great stories.

Every week, a different Penguin Random House author took over the newsletter, including award-winning and bestselling authors like Anthony Marra, Elizabeth McCracken, and Adam Johnson.

The stories were told serially, a piece of a story was sent out each day until the full narrative wrapped up just in time for the weekend. The stories are free and will only be in the emails (you won’t be able to get them anywhere else!).

This storytelling event has ended but a special one-week long edition has begun.  Sign up below to start receiving the latest story and to stay informed as we ramp up for another full Season of Stories:
