Short stories have always been a sort of instant access into an author's brain, their soul and heart. A few pages can lift our lives into locations, people and experiences with a sweep of landscape, narration, feelings and emotions that is difficult to achieve elsewhere.In this series we try to offer up tried and trusted 'Top Tens' across many different themes and authors. But any anthology will immediately throw up the questions - Why that story? Why that author? The theme itself will form the boundaries for our stories which range from well-known classics, newly told, to stories that modern times have overlooked but perfectly exemplify the theme. Throughout the volume our authors whether of instant recognition or new to you are all leviathans of literature.Some you may disagree with but they will get you thinking; about our choices and about those you would have made. If this volume takes you on a path to discover more of these miniature masterpieces then we have all gained something.The Irish Short Story tradition is packed with literary leviathans who take the raw ingredients of the land, it's people and their own talents to create quite dazzling narratives in these perfectly pitched short stories. Genius has many names.01 - The Top 10 - The Irish - An Introduction02 - The Dead by James Joyce03 - The Knitted Collar by Mary Anne Hoare04 - Strange Event in the Life of Schalken the Painter by Sheridan Le Fanu05 - The Last of Squire Ennismore by Charlotte Riddell06 - An Irish Problem by Somerville and Ross07 - All Souls Eve by Dora Sigerson Shorter13 - The Burial of the Rats by Bram Stoker09 - A Rich Woman by Katharine Tynan10 - The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde11 - Dhoya by W B Yeats
