People around the world love great short stories, with the best writers capable of putting different kinds of emotions into so few words. You can see the mist in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and get the creeps from Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven.
But the most renowned short story writers in history called Russia home. Nikolai Gogol was a forerunner of Poe’s in macabre and Surrealism, while Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) is considered to be one of the greatest writers in history, particularly in the genre of short stories. And even though Leo Tolstoy and Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote acclaimed novels, they also wrote great short stories as well.
Recognizing the greatness of these Russian writers, it was only natural to compile The Best Russian Short Stories, a collection of 19 of Russia’s (and the world’s) finest short stories. This edition of The Best Russian Short Stories, is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with pictures of the authors.
