Short Story Slut

It's official.

I've become a short story slut. I practically orgasm at the sight of them, lately. J.A. Konrath just released Six Pack of Crime on Amazon Shorts, as well as These Guns for Hire--a collection of assassination-themed short stories. Must read!

I've already drooled over Neil Gaiman's Fragile Things. Laurell K. Hamilton just released Strange Candy. Both are incredible storytellers. The kind of storytellers who would be great if we were still passing down stories around campfires! The good writing skill is an added talent, for them!

What am I forgetting? I've been seeing short stories everywhere! Anyone have any other short story collection recommendations?

And why are they suddenly so popular?
