    Great selection

    This is a great selection of some of the best known American authors. These are long enough to engage your interest, but short enough to finish quickly.

    American writers who could really write

    This is one of the finest collections of early American writers, all of whom did such a service for short story readers. The use of the exactly appropriate word from the authors is amazing. Especially Poe!

    American Short Story Writers are the Best…

    I am using this book in a study discussion group. It is fascinating to see how much discussion is prompted by the material in the stories in this collection. Each story seems to illuminate a special time or event in our history, and yet we can make connections to our present moment, realizing the commonality of certain feelings and reactions.

    Great addition to your library

    Not a whole lot to say other than if you love modern American literature, this is a tome to add to your collection. The editors selected a bit of adventure, comedy, and tragedy from a wide range of authors. Something for everyone, and a nice value; if you're a reader, get a copy.

    Wonderful Stories.

    This volume is great. It includes some 20 short stories from a variety of masters. Hemingway, Poe, and Henry James are but a handful represented. Luckily the modest price means we can all enjoy to own this volume. Most of us were introduced to many of these fine authors in high school or college. Unfortunately we did not read them very carefully, we were too harried, more interested in a grade than in securing an education. So fine, water over the dam. Now, we can read them for pleasure, enjoy the elegant prose, learn from the insight provided into the human condition, etc. Classics should be read several times in our lifetime. The good ones always provide us with pleasant, revealing and useful surprises. Short and to the point this collection is a joy to read. The important thing is that they should be read (or reread) and then we should take time to think about what the author has revealed. What was the author telling us? How does it relate to our own lives, to the particular stage we are going through.
