"The Collected Stories of Katherine Anne Porter" was an anthology of the work of Katherine Anne Porter. The collection of 19 short stories and novellas won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1966. It should be noted that in the preface "Go Little Book . . " to the Collected Stories, Ms Porter abjured the word "novella," calling it a "slack, boneless, affected word that we do not need to describe anything." She went on to say "Please call my works by their right names: we have four that cover every division: short stories, long stories, short novels, novels."
