You probably have read them but Kafka and Edgar Allan Poe are great short storytellers. I also picked up Vonnegut's God Bless You Dr. Kevorkian. That book made me smile. Also, if you like sardonic humor, check out the Devil's Dictionary by Ambrose Bierce.
I adore Kafka's shorts, The Hunger Artist being my favorite. Oscar Wilde and George Orwell also have some great ones (Shooting the Elephant has always haunted me).

Also David Sedaris if you'll accept creative nonfiction recs.

Well they had less than I thought but I did pick up these before giving up.

Spoiler for Pick ups[IMG:

I'll check out the others you all mentioned on amazon. Looking forward to some of these. Ori, can you PM or post some of your writing? I'd love to read it too.

I loved the Metamorphosis by Kafka. I also especially liked the Penal Colony.

^ I read your comment, rubber soul, and saw dreadnaught's photo of recent acquisitions and noticed something strange: in Britland, Kafka's short story never gets a "The". People might ask, "Have you read Metamorphosis?" because that's its published title in the UK.
__________________________________________________ __________

Something much lighter than Kafka are the stories by Trollheart's fellow countryman, William Trevor. This is not a list of his stories, it's a list of his books of stories, so multiply by about ten to get an idea of how many he wrote in his life:-



I haven't read the collection below, but the cover gives a clue to the world of William Trevor, in which old people, lonely secretaries, and other humdrum individuals are described with an exquisite affectionate charm as WT unveils their moments of passion or doubt. If the dated, the bittersweet, the melancholy appeal to you at all, you'll enjoy his stories. They always leave me with a warm, uplifted feeling because they re-affirm something that I believe irl; that the lives of unassuming people are just as valid, just as interesting, as the lives of the world's brash go-getters:-

Really fun reads that are easy on the brain. I wrote a couple of short stories 30 years ago inspired by King that I can email to anyone interested. They're in PDF format.

Shoot me a PM.

Kings stories would make great films but with the recent track record of movies based on his novels I'm not holding out for anything lol. the Jaunt in particular is a favorite or Mrs. Todd's shortcut... very Big Fish/Benjamin Button-y.
