Any recommendations for short story collections?

I'm fond of:

Mc Sweeney's Mammoth Treasury of Thrilling Tales. Hats off, that is a good title.
Mc Sweeney's Mammoth Treasury Of Thrilling Tales by Michael Chabon
Includes luminaries like Steven King, David Glen Gould, Mr Neil Gaiman, Michael Crichton, Elmore Leonard and Nick Hornby.

The Oxford Book of Japanese Short Stories (includes the inspiration for Rashomon) and a lot of lovely word play.
The Oxford Book of Japanese Short Stories by Theodore W. Goossen

And Saki. Oh Saki. With your Killer Mongoose gods you are really spoiling us.

The Collected Short Stories of Saki by Saki

Chrissie Edden (chrissieedden) | 5 comments If you are looking for short reads that will leave you emotionally devastated for weeks I recommend John Joseph Adam's Apocalypse Triptych:

The End is Nigh by John Joseph Adams The End is Now by John Joseph Adams The End Has Come (The Apocalypse Triptych, #3) by John Joseph Adams

There are loads of good contributors, like Hugh Howey, Paolo Bacigalupi, Jamie Ford, Seanan McGuire, Tananarive Due, Jonathan Maberry, Robin Wasserman, Nancy Kress, Charlie Jane Anders, Ken Liu...
