Virtual Libraries – Part III

More riches for fiction lovers! Flavorwire has posted an entry on 10 Wonderful Short Stories to Read for Free Online with links to works by authors including Alice Munro, Flannery O’Connor, Franz Kafka, and Vladimir Nabokov. Check the comments section for readers’ contributions to the list of fiction that’s just a click away.


  1. Alice Munro's work is already copyright-free? I didn't know that was possible for a living writer.

  2. The Munro story is available through the New Yorker site. It would be interesting to know how that works in the author's contract.

  3. Ah-ha, through the NYer. You can be almost guaranteed she received no extra income for that. That was a long, long battle, and writers lost.
