Fellow blogger Helen Smith brought to my attention the Penguin Mini Modern Classics now available on Amazon. In the UK they are called Modern Classics - a collection of short stories by famous writers.
At $4.19 per Kindle edition, this could be a huge breakthrough for the short story writer. Not only are these small collections receiving good reviews from readers but it's also a sign that major publishers are now acknowledging the importance of this form of fiction.
With the ever rising number of ebook readers, the short story genre may once again be a viable source of income for writers rather than just something to do for fun.
