Novellas/Short StoriesI read a lot of short stories thanks to teaching. Here are a few favorites:
Now it is time to give a little love to those little stories in your life. Share your love for your favorite shorts of any form. What is a short story or novella that doesn’t get the attention that it deserves? Recommend to readers what shorts you would recommend they start with. How about listing some short story anthologies based upon genres or authors?
"Lamb to the Slaughter" Roald Dahl
"The Landlady" Roald Dahl
"Candle Cove" - One of my students recommended this to me; it's pretty creepy!
"Down to a Sunless Sea" Neil Gaiman
"The Story of an Hour" Kate Chopin
"Word Problem" Bruce Holland Rogers
"The Necklace" Guy de Maupassant
The Lottery Shirley Jackson (suggested by Stacy)
And a bonus:
"Thoughtcrime Experiments" - a sci-fi/fantasy anthology collection
