Join the fun.


Sign up to get 52 short stories by seven of France's top authors.

A full year of intrigue and wordsmanship.


Seven of France's top authors got together to play a collaborative writing game resulting in 52 wacky stories. They each wrote an episode, passing it on to the other, and so forth, until all seven had contributed to each story. They set traps, had fun and used their prowess to continue  and conclude each story. The result is this collection of short stories: some are zany, some are clever, some are just plain weird, and all show the incredible creative skill of these seven very fine writers.

Now they can be yours, free of charge.
We'll send you the stories by email daily or weekly. Please choose one or the other so we can send you the stories.

  • A daily shot?
What about a short read once a day? In France, the collection came out as a calendar, with an episode a day. We have translated the stories and provide them with this daily newsletter. We'll send you an episode a day at 6 a.m. EST, for a quick taste of France with your morning coffee. You'll get a story every seven days.
  • A weekly story?
Or opt for a weekly dose: one story, seven authors every week for 52 weeks.
