Lori's Book Nook

Short stories, revisited

Posted on: August 20, 2006

I picked up a book of short stories the other day, The Victoria Reader: A Treasury of Timeless Stories, edited by Michele Slung.
In it are a lovely collection of relatively happy, amusing stories. Nothing dark and dreadful, nor sorrowful — just a delightful mix of fun.

…including Mark Twain’s story The £1,000,000 Bank-Note. And here it is online, for your reading pleasure!

Other fun stories:

The Inconsiderate Waiter by J.M. Barrie

The Lady and the Flagon by Anthony Hope
