Re: What is the saddest short story you've ever read?

A couple come to mind right now.

In The Dark by Arnold Aletrino. As far as I know this is the only thing of his translated into English and the only place you can find it is in "The Dedalus Book of Dutch Fantasy". A strange little gloomy story about a forlorn man gripped by despair. I connected with it so much it nearly brought me to tears.

Love At Second Sight by Reggie Oliver. From "Holidays From Hell". A sad, haunting little tale about loss and what ifs.
