    The greatest short story writers strive to achieve a single, dramatic effect, a feature which the early masters of this genre perfected. Although the short story came from Europe, it was reborn in America and reached a pinnacle of superb form on these shores by the turn of the 20th century. In so many of our best writers, we hear echoes of a pioneer ethos that sustains the heart of a great literature. Here are 12 of America's best.

    "Charlton Griffin turns classics into superhits!"
    Overall

    I now got into the habit of searching the Audible website solely by the name of one narrator: Charlton Griffin. So far he helped me hear stories I have read, or tried to read, several times since high school in a brand new way. For instance, for many years I could never get through Poe's House of Usher. But Mr. Griffin gave Poe's rather pompous verbosity a pleasing musical quality and thus helped me finally make it to the end of the story and discover that it is indeed a very good one.
    So, now I am going to order Charlton Griffin's rendition of Homer's Iliad. I have tried to read that super classic several times before, but never quite made it past page 20 or so. I'll be happy to keep everybody who is interested informed what Mr. Griffin did for me there.
