Recommended Reading II: Kris's Picks

Like Shane, I also read a ridiculous amount of short stories. This is due to both my love of fiction and the tendency for bookstores to sell many a short story compilations on the bargain table.

Anyway, here are some short stories that have resonated and stuck with me over the years.

  • Ray Bradbury: "Homecoming"
  • Matt Venne: "Elvis Presley and the Bloodsucker Blues"
  • Orson Scott Card: "Eumenides in the Fourth Floor Lavatory"
  • Bram Stoker: "The Judge's House"
  • Charlotte Perkins Gilman: "The Yellow Wallpaper"
  • Joyce Carol Oates: "Thanksgiving"
  • Roald Dahl: "Genesis and Catastrophe"
  • Stephen King: "Popsy"
  • William Sleator: "The Elevator"
  • Amy Bloom: "Silver Water"
If you would like to know where to find any of the stories mentioned above or the ones in Shane's picks, email us at
