Short Stories

Short stories are nice, because though they are short, they have just as much (more even) time and effort by the author to bind a story. As a result, you don’t have to read as much and you get a lot for your time. They also are small enough to disect, most contain multiple hidden meanings etc.

Here are a few written by others that I really enjoyed.

The Machine Stops – E. M. Forster
A Clean, Well-Lighted Place – Ernest Hemingway
A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings – Gabriel Garcia Marquez
The Things They Carried – Tim O`Brien
