My rating: <a href=”https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1353143763″>5 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />

I feel that his anthology of short fiction is a must for the bookcase of every creative writer – and essential reading for every person who loves literature – especially short fiction.<br>The book features a selection of 71 short stories from accomplished creative writers of the world – duly translated in English where required.<br>Each story is unique, conveys a powerful message, and is a lesson in creative writing.<br>I first read this book in 1991 and these stories introduced me to many authors I had not read before – which gave me the motivation to explore their writings.<br>I pull out this book from my bookcase very often – open a random page – and read a story – yes – the stories can be savoured again and again – and every time you read them – you feel an epiphany.<br>Do read the stories in “Great Short Stories of the World” – it will be a fulfilling experience.
