The Stories is a boxset of three EPs by death/doom metal band My Dying Bride. The boxset was released as the EPs had become quite rare around the world. The Stories had a high amount of sales and ended up selling all 3,000 copies, causing it to be as rare as the individual EPs themselves. This is what prompted the release of the "Trinity", which features the tracks from the three EPs on one CD, barring "Transcending (Into The Exquisite)".
