The Ultimate Tool for Locating Thousands of Short Stories

Thanks to its detailed indexing for hundreds of thousands of short stories, this database is an essential resource for readers seeking stories by author or genre, and for those researching a body of work of a literary figure.

Precision Searching

Short Story Index makes it easy to find the most relevant search results by being searchable by author, title, subject, keyword, date, literary technique and source, or by any combination of terms. Additionally, subject access helps narrow your search even further by including theme, locale, narrative technique or device.
