Re: Favourite Short Story
Too many dozens of candidates. And tons of great titles named in this thread.
Here's a few that have stuck in my mind over the years:
Fritz Leiber, Gonna Roll the Bones for vivid imagery
Ambrose Bierce An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge wicked twist-turney
Edgar Allen Poe The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether Humorous Horror? tweaking the fine line between madness and sanity
