A delightful collection of short stories by 21 great storytellers such as Charles Dickens, Charles Lamb, Daniel Defoe, Thomas Hood, to name a few. A short story may be a mere anecdote of three hundred words or a work of ten or fifteen thousand. In content it may be anything from a glimpse of character, an incident, to a highly finished picture of life. But it should be a complete work of imagination, its effect achieved with a minimum of personages and events.
