Classic Short Stories Logo
This website is dedicated to the short story and to those interested in reading this delightful art form.
Fewer and fewer people these days read short stories. This is unfortunate. Few will ever experience the joy that reading such fine work can give. The goal of this site is to give a nice cross section of short stories in the hope that these short stories will excite people into rediscovering this excellent source of entertainment.
Happy reading!
