Whenever authors ask me for writing advice, one of the first things I tell them is to read a lot. And not just in your chosen field either. Reading a wide cross-section of genres and styles will always help improve your craft. In fact, reading outside of your comfort zone can often help you to bring new ideas and approaches to the table in your own writing. I've compiled here a list of thirty short stories (admittedly one of which stretches the definition of 'short'). All of these are supremely excellent tales, and I believe that every one of them has something unique to teach when it comes to constructing narratives. I've taken care not to focus solely on horror, although there are plenty on the list that belong in our little corner of the literatureverse. I'd recommend that everyone with aspirations to write for the podcast - whether newcomers or returning authors - check these stories out if they get chance. Everything on the list is available to read online for free, with links provided in this post.

By now, most of you will be aware that our season finale is going to be the much-anticipated production of the sequel to A Seaside British Pub. If you're new to the podcast, A Seaside British Pub is one of our most beloved stories, first heard in S7E05. It soon became a firm fan-favorite, regularly cited in all-time-best story lists by our listeners. So suffice it to say, the fact we're getting to do an audio production of the sequel is an exciting deal for all of us here at The NoSleep Podcast. But what's that you say? If you're new to the podcast, you haven't heard the original yet? Well fear not, we've got you covered. Check out our re-release of the original A Seaside British Pub here, available for everyone to catch up before the season finale.

But that's not all! A couple of years ago, author C.M. Scandreth wrote a bonus story set in the Seaside British Pub universe, which she's kindly granted us permission to share with you all here on The NoSleep Podcast blog. So, whether you're a returning fan or a newcomer, now's the best time to catch up on everything Seaside British Pub before our exciting Season 10 finale next weekend!

The original text of the Seaside British Pub bonus story can be found here, posted on C.M. Scandreth's subreddit, which you should go subscribe to if you haven't already, to check out her other excellent work.

So without further ado, read on to experience another tale in... A Seaside British Pub.
