In the beginning, SHORT STORIES was a small magazine that published literary short stories, often translated from other languages. By the 1914 it had become a pulp magazine, generally featuring an action scene on its cover. A SHORT STORIES cover from its glory days is immediately recognizable from the iconic red sun that from 1917 was always found in the background. For many years it published two issues a month, but went to monthly publication with the April, 1949 issue. In the 1950's it changed to digest format, and eventually vanished in the late 1950's.
