From haunting ghost stories to classic fairy tales, Going Public … In Shorts! is a collection of forty classic and lesser-known works by history's greatest writers.

Among the stories included are 'The Death of a Government Clerk,' Anton Chekhov's defining vignette; 'The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,' Mark Twain's comedic story that earned him national fame; 'The Gift of the Magi,' O. Henry's masterful Christmastime tale about love and sacrifice; and 'The Story of an Hour,' Kate Chopin's enduring feminist work about a frail woman and her dead husband.

Also included are lesser-known stories such as 'Brown Wolf,' a short tale by Jack London; 'The Diamond as Big as the Ritz,' an early thriller-romance by F. Scott Fitzgerald; 'The Spectre Bridegroom,' a folk tale–style ghost story by Washington Irving; and 'The Prophets' Paradise,' a dreamlike narrative by Robert W. Chambers.
