History of the Short Story

This is a fantastic summary of the history of the short story that I came across:   http://www.karenleefield.com/blog/2011/06/writing-course-history-of-the-short-story/

For those of you who don't know your genre's roots, worth a read-though.  For those that may be confused as to how the short story differs from the genre (yes, there are actual rules of engagement when writing these things), it's a quick way to clear things up.
