Publisher Description

Over the decades, short stories have remained the most engaging form of storytelling. Before going on the adventure of writing something lengthier, many of the greatest writers in history began with short stories.

This book is an attempt to handpick the best short story writing from the past few decades, with some of the most well-known personalities in the profession. Stories that will make you laugh, cry, grin, or pout from all walks of life.

Among the authors are Rudyard Kipling, Rabindranath Tagore, Anton Chekhov, H.G. Wells, Jack Landon, Mark Twain, Dickens, D.H. Lawrence, Leo Tolstoy, and Arthur Conan Doyle.
