A bestseller from first publication, The Norton Anthology of Short Fiction has been adopted in over 750 schools in its Fifth Edition. From the start, it has offered students the writer's voice, pure and unencumbered by excessive editorial commentary. This new Sixth Edition continues to abide by R.V. Cassill's initial plan: "to put together a very large group of stories that would, in detail and overall design, express both the living tradition of short fiction and the culture of which it is a part."
