        Barrett’s mastery of the short story form won him the Guardian First Book Award, the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Prize, and a National Book Foundation 5 under 35 honor. It’s a collection that’s striking for its audacity to be a debut—completely assured of voice, of character, and of a setting that is utterly realized. While "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" is certainly one of the most famous examples of short stories, other tales such as Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Lottery Ticket" by Anton Chekhov also fall into this category. Read on to enjoy several examples of short stories for children and adults.

      The science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein (–) was productive during a writing career that spanned the last 49 years of his life; the Robert A. Heinlein bibliography includes 32 novels, 59 short stories and 16 collections published during his life. Four films, two TV series, several episodes of a radio series, and a board game derive more or less directly from his work. 11/22/ The number nineteen is a magical number in the Dark Tower novels. 19 JUNE, In Dark Tower VI: Song of Susannah, we learn that this is the day that Stephen King was hit by van near Lovell, Maine. In Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower, it is the day that Jake Chambers and Stephen King save Stephen King’s life. In 11/22/63, this is the date that the Vermont Yankee nuclear reactor.

      My guess is, certain genres (like erotica) won’t mind paying 99cents or even for a short read, but other types of genres won’t do so well (business books expect more meat, scifi/fantasy readers expect more story – they might buy a short from a famous writer, but maybe not a writer they don’t recognize).   A successful short story career can also work wonders to spread your name and open other doors of opportunity for you. And it can serve as a gateway to your novels. So there’s definite benefit to writing short fiction, but only if you love the form and want to add it as one string among many on your writing bow.
