@xzisted "I have no mouth and I must scream" this is a great choice Harlan Ellison is a great Sci-Fi writer. Have you heard him narrate that story? He makes it all the more creepy.



You should check out the game if you haven't already, Harlan plays AM.

I'm not much for short stories. The longer the better for me. But Steven King has a lot of great short stories and novellas.

Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach is a good short read. It's all folky and inspirational and such. I liked it anyway.

Thanks for this I'm listening to it now. I am aware of the game and I was thinking of buying it, I guess the dated look is holding me back.

Just thought I'd add more to this post (as I quite like short stories and reading in general).

If you haven't heard of it there is a really cool app call Wattpad, you can get it on the iphone / ipad or just read it online on your PC.

Its full of community written short stories and books and its all free so I'd recommend checking it out if your into this kind of thing.

That app sounds cool, I'll check it out, could be a good way to pass the time. Hey you got any specific short stories you can link?

I'd recommend "This Would Be Paradise" - A zombie novel.

My favorite short story is there will come soft rains..

I can see it taking place in the fallout universe, especially because it's a post apocalyptic world, and the house is controlled by robots, it's tragic to see what happens to it...

Heres a short i read not so long ago by Clive Barker, its my fav since i was around 15 years old, i use to get the booklets per character but here is the full short in one go, its called Totured Souls, great lil read, though i reccomend google imaging the main characters each time you come across them to get a sence of them, as i said in a other post about its fuller story the best way to describe it is Hellraiser on Tatooine Smile

Anything from the short story collection of Phillip K Dick and hmm...William Gibson wrote a couple of amazing ones too. But in all fairness, Gibson will draw you into a huge trilogy while Dick has a whole book or two thats a collection of his short stories and theyre superb.
At least I got my hands on one or two, may be more.

That reminds me, I still have to read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Phillip K. Dick. I believe Blade Runner was based on that book, but I also read that the book is very different to the movie.
