Re: Create your own short story collection!

I have bookmarked this already remarkable thread and will attempt to read every story I've seen mentioned that I haven't already read!

Thanks to everyone!

I'm mulling over my own dream-anthology list.

Tarnhelm - Hugh Walpole
Whittington's Cat - Lady Eleanor Smith
The Tower of Moab - L. A. Lewis
The Clock - W. F. Harvey
The Terror on Tobit - Charles Birkin
Randalls Round - Eleanor Scott

1945 - 2010
Couching at the Door - D. K. Broster
Podolo - L. P. Hartley
Curious Adventure of Mr. Bond - Nugent Barker
Cushi - Christopher Woodforde
Cwm Garon - L. T. C. Rolt

Re: Create your own short story collection!

Yes, this is a most excellent thread.


Until I assemble a list, which may be never, due to my bad memory of titles and authors, I would have to include THE INTERLOPERS by Saki (H.H. Munro) This story so affected me as a child that I never could forget it. A spine-tingling ending.
