    "One thing- Litnet is still thin on modern literature," he said(that would be me saying), then ducked and scurried quickly into a doorway, then another doorway.

    This took some thought, but here's what I settled on:
    -"The Fall of the House of Usher" by Edgar Allan Poe
    -"The Story of an Hour" by Kate Chopin
    -"Gift of the Magi" by O. Henry
    "Exit, Pursued by a bear"
    -William Shakespeare, A Winter's Tale

    "There Will Come Soft Rain" - Ray Bradbury
    "The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas" - Ursula K Leguin

    But, but.... so many more! It was a really close shave not to put "The Parson's Pleasure" by Roald Dahl...

    I've never thought about this before. But now that I saw the question, three titles popped up into my head. So here they are:

    The Death of Ivan Ilych by Leo Tolstoy
    2BR02B by Kurt Vonnegut
    The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas by Ursula K. Le Guin
