Inside Stories

Inside Stories is a collection of short stories by Mike Yachnik, who has made them available as a free audiobook.

From traditional to experimental in format, this collection of short stories includes mysteries, monologues, literary pieces and mischievous whimsy. At times humorous, at times heartbreaking, the stories aim to challenge as much as they strive to please. Strangers become intimates, intimates become strangers – the world is turned upside down, shaken then served up with a wink. So sit back and let us take you on a journey to private places and unforgettable inside stories.
