Short Story Meme

After a long hiatus, I'm online tonight, thinking about what I'd like to post here, catching up with friends' blogs. I came upon Susan's post about favorite short stories (ReadingWritingLiving), which, naturally, made me contemplate my own list.

So far, I can only think of five favorites (in no particular order):

"The Scarlet Ibis" by James Hurst
"The Story of an Hour" by Kate Chopin
"Gary Keillor" by Garrison Keillor
"A Rose for Emily" by William Faulkner
"Marigolds" by Eugenia Collier
"Masque of the Red Death" by Edgar Allen Poe

What are yours?

Wow, the Faulkner story is the only one in your list I've read, and that was years ago! Better get reading...

Meanwhile, one of my favorite short stories is Lorrie Moore's "Amahl and the Night Visitors: A Guide to the Tenor of Love."
