I have a new project going on here at Seize the Book (I will be announcing it next week, so please come back), and I need your help.
I would like for you to tell me what your favorite short story is (or one that you really like). I would like to read more short stories, so I would like some suggestions. Here are a few that I came up with:
Charles Dickens, Arthur Conan Doyle, James Joyce, W. Somerset Maugham, Edgar Allen Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Mark Twain
Do you know any stories from these authors that you like?
Also, when I Googled "favorite short stories", I found these:
Hills Like White Elephants - Ernest Hemingway
The Lady With the Pet Dog - Joyce Carol Oates
The Secret Sharer - Joseph Conrad
The Guilded Six Bit - Zora Neale Hurston
An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge - Ambrose Bierce
There Will Come Soft Rains - By Ray Bradbury
To Build a Fire - Jack London
The Story of an Hour - Kate Chopin
The Open Boat - Stephen Crane
A Boy and His Dog - Harlan Ellison
The Library Police - Stephen King
A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen
Have you read any of these? Did you like it?
One more thing, I am not interested (for this project) in any Disney, fairy tales/fables or stories from children's books.
The story can be humorous, sad, scary, weird, etc. And you can suggest more than one.
Please help me by leaving a comment. Thanks!
