Short Stories

A short story is a short work of prose fiction. It may be in any genre of fiction, and the exact definition of "short" will often depend on the genre.

Short stories are often collected together with other short stories, poetry, art, and/or essays in order to form a larger book, although it is becoming more common for short stories to be released as stand-alone ebooks.
