Basically, this thread is for anything anyone can say about any non-trivial anthologies of "literary" short stories.
Yep, I was thinking of non-speculative/classics and also anthologies (or multi-author books) rather than collections (or single-author books). Things like The Norton Anthology of Short Fiction, the various Penguin books, etc. (I mean, those usually have a Le Guin and Bradbury story or whatnot, but they're generally non-speculative.)Did you mean non-speculative and/or classics?
Good topic, if people can stick to it.Basically, this thread is for anything anyone can say about any non-trivial anthologies of "literary" short stories.
Those Costain/Beecroft (and Costain) anthologies look really neat. I'll keep them in mind. (I have a couple of volumes of Kipling - I think maybe a sort of YA thing - edited by Beecroft. Never occurred to me to wonder if he'd done anything else.)How about Stories To Remember, volumes 1 and 2, and More Stories To Remember, volumes 1 and 2, all four “selected” by Thomas B. Costain and John Beecroft? Each two volume set contains six novels and thirty plus short stories.
Then there’s this which I have without the dust jacket:

Wonder what it's like to be an English author named Shakespeare these days?
Great anthology. I'm a big fan of Amis, Banks, McEwan and Swift. But does anyone know if Clive Sinclair took to writing before or after he brought us the C5?
