Collecting the great authors and some of the greatest world literature all in one place, 50 CLASSIC SHORT STORIES is the first application to focus on the essential classics in short story format. Including favorite authors as diverse as Verne, Poe, Austen, Carroll, Dickens, Doyle, Kipling, Twain, Stoker, Joyce and Wilde, 50 CLASSIC SHORT STORIES also takes care to choose some of the less obvious stories from these great authors, collecting over 500 pages of stories you won't find elsewhere.

50 CLASSIC SHORT STORIES is a must for any student of literature, any book lover, and any casual reader on-the-go, who wants an introduction to each of these great authors without having to invest time in reading a full-length work by each. A great primer for any classic education, all in one place, and all for less than one dollar.
