The short story is considered to be one of the most challenging genres because of the need for compact plotlines and the ability to conjure up atmosphere and character in a few sentences and to engage the reader instantly. This collection presents 66 of the greatest examples of the genre - many of them well known, some hidden literary treasures, all of them exquisite examples of the short story at its finest.
And over 40 other great stories....

Loved listening to the different stories.
Enjoyed the era of the tales. Provides interesting insight into the thinking and lives of the time.

What disappointed you about The Great Short Story Collection?
The narrator totally sucked
Has The Great Short Story Collection turned you off from other books in this genre?
Poked my ears out after trying to listen to this.
Would you be willing to try another one of Cathy Dobson’s performances?
I would need a lobotomy first.
