Copeland points us to a fantastic resource--155 Classic Short Stories, all online. I have to admit that of the few stories on the list that I've read, most were assigned to me when I was in school. Stephen King, who has written some great short stories and novellas, has lamented the decline of the genre as a form as popular literature. Even until the mid-1990s, Esquire and GQ used to regularly publish short fiction, and a lot of it was damn good. I have to confess that I rarely read the fiction published in the New Yorker, and I think I'm going to resolve to change that.
