The Stories

Here are all of the short stories I have selected for you to read this term.  You do not need to read all of them, but you will be required to look at a couple for class and will need to select a few for your final project.

Please note that I have divided the stories into categories.  There are short, medium and long stories.  For your project you may choose one of the following combinations:

1. 1 short story and 1 medium story

2. 1 long story

3. 3 short stories
