Stories on the Web

For reasons I can’t quite figure out, the CS Monitor devotes a full article to reviewing Short Stories at East of the Web, a British repository of short stories across many genres (humor, crime, sci-fi, classic and contemporary, mostly Anglo-centric.) The Monitor praises the site for its ease of navigation, and offers a complete guide to what you’ll find there. Short story databases abound, and one I visit semi-regularly is Short Story Classics, which has an impressive database that even includes a few of the Russian, French, Spanish, and Japanese masters. The rest of the world needs its own story database.
