A Listmania! list by cpauthor
The list author says: "Summer's coming right along and it's about the time when everyone assigns themselves summer reading. Most bite off more than they can chew (I don't know how many times I told myself to read Moby Dick). Here's a list of good short story collections to allow you to get your story fix in a shorter amount of time."
