A Brief Survey of the Short Story

The Guardian has been steadily adding to a series of fascinating articles that it began back in 2007.  The series is “A Brief Survey of the Short Story,” and at this point there are 51 entries – each one about a different author and his/her works.  It’s a great resource as well as a site worth perusing just for the fun of it.  The range of authors is just as broad as you might wish: Sherwood Anderson, John Cheever, Flannery O’Connor, Isaac Babel, Boccaccio, Vladimir Nabokov, Jorge Luis Borges, Leo Tolstoy, Nikolai Gogol, and Ryunosuke Akutagawa to name a few.  This is a great site to find out about authors you’re familiar with, and a great source of information about new readings to explore.
