Despite the relative lack of venues in which they can be published, the challenge the medium represents has attracted many remarkable writers. Philip Hensher, following the great success of his definitive two-volume 'Penguin Book of British Short Stories', has been reading a vast trove of material and has chosen thirty great stories, written between the death of Princess Diana and the present day
