I will post here stories that I’ve read that I wish I’d written.
Not a short story in the classic sense of the word but I loved this novella by Alex Garland- Coma. Surreal, confusing and hard to put down.
The greatest horror writer of all time-Stephen King. It’s hard to pick just one short story so no doubt I will post more. But for now here is ‘The Road Virus Heads North’. Just awesome.
Shirley Jackson’s ‘The Lottery’- chilling and compelling.
Roal Dahl’s ‘Lamb to the Slaughter’. The man was a genius. End of.
John Cheever’s ‘The Swimmer’. Brilliant concept. Deep. Dark.
The one and only Philip K Dick’s ‘The Eyes Have It’. Sci-fi with a touch of paranoid humour.
Tobias Wolf’s: The Night in Question. Awesome story.
