Short Stories

A few weeks ago, someone asked about other short stories like the ones we read in class. I’ve put together a list of some important short stories and novellas. Some were written in English, and others were translated from foreign languages. If you would like copies of any of these, let me know! I have most of them with me, and would be happy to send them to you.
