Are you also a fan of short stories?
I love good short stories!?
Yes. I wrote like ten so far
Love them. I read them a lot and write them sometimes too. ?
Chekhov’s short stories: better than chocolate.
@Jonathan Chekhov`s short stories are amazing
Yes. There’s something satisfying about short stories.
I recommend, The Nightingale and the Rose by Oscar Wilde.
@Meredith all of the short stories are very good.
I’m biased because I write short stories. But some of the best fiction I’ve ever read has been in the short story format. Hemingway was a master of the short story. Jack London wrote great stories such as “To Build a Fire.” “The Snake” by John Steinbeck is one of the creepiest stories I ever read. Ray Bradbury wrote marvelous short stories.
I have really enjoyed Jeffrey Archer-And So Hangs a Tale, Interpreter of Maladies-Jhumpa Lahiri and of course classics like Hemingway or O’Henry.
I recommend master of short stories Guy De Maupassant.
@Khatchig One of my favorites!
Chekhov, William Trevor
Absolutely! I especially like them for when I’ve finished a larger book and need a change up.
I’ve only read Kafka’s stuff and a few other from my country, but yeah.
Yes, I love short stories.
Yes, I am. If done well, they can be very intense.
Nope. Because if they’re actually good, I want more.
Yes. As long as the story is well-written, length doesn’t matter.
Yes. Chekhov, Munro, Updike, Flaubert.
Yes I love the written word.
Anton Chekhov. Beautiful writing. He can say more and beautifully than any author who writes novels.
tup most of them
Length doesn’t matter at all. Short stories are harder to write according to me. Nothing tops Chekhov’s stories or Dubliners by the dude who made me sleep or the detailed unassuming stories by O Henry. Itwould even keep a non reader interested.
Yes, of course.
I love short stories. I read them to decompress after an epic series, . . . or when I just can’t focus long enough to get into a novel. ?
I like short mysteries or psychological thrillers. Never can find that many though.
