What are some great short-stories collection?
>>
Dubliners
Cosmicomics
Ficciones
Songs of A Dead Dreamer and Grimscribe
Blow-Up
Interviews with Hideous Men
The Bloody Chamber
The Street of Crocodiles

Any short story collection by worthwhile authors. My favourite:
Gogol
Kafka
Mann
Dosto
>>
Kafka
>>
WINESBURG, OHIO
>>
Collected Fictions of Jorge Luis Borges

It will completely change how you view what a story should be, and it will make all other fiction seem boring in comparison after reading it.

All these.
Calvino also has a collection of stories, each based on a sense. He died before he could complete the five senses, but the three that he left are all amazing.
>>
Chekov, Joyce, and Kafka. The rest are not worth the paper they are printed on
>>
The Bible
>>
>>10486279
A tomb for Boris Davidovič
>>
>>10486279

Great surrealist fiction.

Memories Of The Future - Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky
>>
>>10486279

I'll vouch for the following that were already mentioned:
Carver
Krzhizhanovsky
Ligotti (really only the first few of that collection, his style gets very tedious and desu most of his stories are just shit)
Primo Levi
Mann
Calvino
Gogol
And I'll add that Soul by Platonov is very much worth your time if you care about Soviet era writers at all.
