"The Lost Decade" By F. Scott Fitzgerald [23]
F. Scott Fitzgerald was an alcoholic, and he knew it. This story is a look at his hope, to escape the deadly pull of alcoholism, and to live his life again. Sadly "Scotty" died just a year after writing this. Fitzgerald addressed alcoholism countless times in his stories, and often used surrogates for himself as he does in this story, but I think this might just be my favorite. Love our shorts?

“The Street” By H.P Lovecraft (Warning - Read Description) [19]
QUICK WARNING: This story was described by scholars as "manifestly racist". So, why am I sharing it with you? First of all, it's an interesting read. Second of all, the views that inspired this story should seem rather familiar to anyone following the news closely these days. In fact, stories like these have recently stirred debate over how Lovecraft should be discussed in the modern era. This story led me to reflect on the phrase "history repeats itself" and how we can prevent ourselves from falling int...
