In fact, after reading several weighty novels and sections of series, and whatnot, I actually think that a short story collection is exactly what I'm in the mood for. As it turns out, I own several short story collections that need reading, including the third (and final) of the Conan collections, the Solomon Kane collection, the Kull collection, the first White Wolf printing of the Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser series, the complete Lovecraft collection (in four volumes) and a few other sundry collections that I've stumbled across over the recent years as well. I have an older Years Best Sci-Fi and a modern Cthulhu collection too, at least, that I'm aware of off the top of my head.
While many people really enjoy short story collections, I find that I take them best in smallish doses. One collection at a time, and then I'm craving the structure and depth of a novel all over again. We'll see how it goes, though.
