Re: Favourite Short Story

The Lottery by Shirley Jackson. I read it in 7th/8th grade and still remember it. They made a tv movie of it in the 90s but as always the written word is better.

Lately I have been reading some Phillip K Dick short stories, including paycheck which is the "title" of the compilation, and they are all really good.

Re: Favourite Short Story

A Sound of Thunder was such a cool short story to me as a kid, especially the version in the Dinosaurs anthology with the William Stout illustrations. Nowadays it's a part of the anthology some of my independent studies students read and I find it leaves more time-related quandaries than anything else.

As a teen, John Updike's A&P was a memorable and relatable tale.

As an adult one of the more notable short stories I recently read was Stephen King's The Man in the Black Suit in his collection, Everything's Eventual.

Re: Favourite Short Story

I'd have to say my favorite short story is probably 'The Colour out of Space' by H.P. Lovecraft. I've got a whole book of his stuff but still have yet to finish it.

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." - John 14:6
