Literary and Mainstream Writers with Genre Influences

Here are some classically literary writers writing stories that are, if only marginally, genre work.

Ernest Hemingway "The Killers."Crime story or literary story? Here.

This is the best current link for this story.Try finding it online somewhere or in an old textbook if you can't find it here.

Leo Tolstoy "Three Hermits." Supernatural, horror, or literary? Here, here.

William Faulkner "A Rose For Emily." Horror or literary? Here.

Stephen Crane "A Tale of Mere Chance."
Horror or literary from the author of The Red Badge of Courage?
This short story is in his collection Last Words. Go to the link, choose your type of download, go to the table of contents and find this short story.

Jorge Luis Borges. Experimental, horror or literary?  The Book of Sand
Saki The Open Window
Is this a horror story or not?

I'd really like to include the following, but I can't find and haven't made a good pdf file on it, but if you find it, let me know. It's not required to read yet: John Updike "Under the Microscope."
