Fritz Leiber. SELECTED STORIES is available at Baen's Webscriptions site and also at Amazon's Kindle store.

Harlan Ellison. Check out his collections GENTLEMAN JUNKIE and SHATTERDAY in particular.

Joseph Epstein's collections THE GOLDIN BOYS and FABULOUS SMALL JEWS (the latter available for Kindle) are well worth a look.

There's not nearly enough of it available as ebooks, but the short fiction of Roger Zelazny, Theodore Sturgeon, Gerald Kersh, and Jorge Luis Borges.

Several volumes of Robert Silverberg's collected stories are available for Kindle. Ditto Richard Matheson's work.

To my knowledge none of Jack Finney's short fiction has been published in ebook formats, but if you enjoy good Twilight Zone-style fantasy you'll want to check out his collections THE THIRD LEVEL and I LOVE GALESBURG IN THE SPRINGTIME, both long out of print; the paperback collection ABOUT TIME includes selected stories from both these collections.

Bests to all,

Tony Rabig

Thanks for mentioning Saki! I hadn't heard of him before; I really like his stuff. Anybody know how many short stories he's done? I'm currently compiling 170 of his stories into epub and mobi formats. I want to make sure I get as many as I can.

I bought his "complete works" on Books on Board and they mention 125 short stories, 3 novels and 3 plays. Either you have duplicates, or my "complete" works are not as complete as they claim.

Look at haytom.us. There are 170 on the stories page, if I'm counting right. One is in several chapters, though.
EDIT: Okay, before I had used a download manager to get all the stories, and I had judged by the number of files. After actually counting, I got 139.

O Henry. His works should be public domain by now. I couldn't find them on the MR book list though.

I especially liked:
-Last Leaf
-The Ransom of Red Chief (This was my mother's favorite! I have no idea why.)
-A Retrieved Reformation
-Gift Of The Magi

Most his short stories are available online.

Melancholy Elephants by Spider Robinson

OMG -- it's available online from Robinson's website.

"Copyright is a hot-button topic these days. Does information want to be free…or just reasonably priced? I discussed copyright at some length 25 years ago—a year before the first TCP/IP wide area network in the world went operational—two years before the first Macintosh went on sale!—in the following story. It won the 1983 Hugo Award for Best Short Story, and I hope you’ll still find it illuminating today."

Google Books has a preview of Modern Classics of Science Fiction edited by Gardner Dozois. Pages are randomly missing but Samuel Delany's Driftglass seems to be intact.

I'm annoyed that Sarah Selecky's collection of short stories "This Cake is for the Party" isn't e-book available. It was nominated for the Giller Prize last year.
