The gift of great stories

Novellix offers grand literary experiences in a compact format: pocket-sized short stories! 

We are an independent, boutique publishing house founded and based in Stockholm, Sweden. Novellix publishes small paperbacks with one short story per book, ideal for travelling or whenever the mood to read strikes. The short stories are sold as singles, or presented in beautifully illustrated gift-boxes curated by theme and content. A box filled with stories is a distinctive and thoughtful gift to both give and receive. Our mission is simple: to provide great quality, accessible literature – perfect for the modern reader. 

Founded by Lena Hammargren in 2011, Novellix has published over 300 unique titles in Swedish and an increasing selection of  our titles are now also available in English. Each of our books comprises an independent short story which can easily be enjoyed in one sitting. Our list offers something for everyone; from Nobel Prize-winning authors to thrilling crime-fiction to contemporary classics; including titles by Virginia Woolf, Astrid Lindgren, Oscar Wilde, Selma Lagerlöf and many, many more.
