Not as common of a genre for people to read, but a very interesting one, so we'll see if this thread is popular or not ;) . I was wondering if anyone knew of any good short stories?
My personal favorite is The Sandkings by George R.R. Martin. It's pretty readily available online for free if anyone else wants to read it and give their thoughts

It's an amazing genre with great potential, but I'm not familiar with any present day short story authors that really 'WOW!' me. I agree the past works of the genre are the genre's best work
