Short Story Length: Some Popular Examples

Here's a good lis t of some well-known short stories and their wordcounts, for any of you who are unsure of how long a short story should be. (The two I've written this month clock in at just short of 3000 words each; we shall call that "Poe" length.)

If you're interested in flash fiction (or micro-fiction) -- short stories with fewer than 1000 words -- there's a good anthology you should check out called Flash Fiction Forward .
