Everyone at Flying Pickle Performing Arts is delighted to announce that we have joined forces with Fiction on the Web to create a new series of audiobooks!

Fiction on the Web has been online and continuously publishing since July 1996, which makes it the oldest short stories website on the Internet. Thousands of stories have been enjoyed by millions of readers.

Beginning in early 2024, the owner of Fiction on the Web, Charlie Fish will be working with our very own Head of Studio, Sam Devereaux to create a monthly audiobook collection of short stories. Flying Pickle’s distribution partner, Spoken Realms will release the finished audiobooks to digital marketplaces worldwide.

The Concept

Utilising Fiction on the Web’s vast library of wonderful material, Charlie will carefully curate short stories into collections of 2-4 stories. Each collection will be tied together by a overarching theme.

Sam will then make use of Flying Pickle studio and some superb guest narrators to realise the recordings in an an entertaining and thought provoking way.

Art and Music

The artwork for the series has been created by Flying Pickle’s in-house fine artist, Julia Kerrison. The audiobooks will also feature incidental music by renowned musician and composer Matt Devereaux.
