Here is a list, by no means complete, of some of my favorite books. I seldom have time to re-read books, but I have read more than once all of the following:

Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut
Einstein's Dreams by Alan Lightman
Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe
Ficcciones by Jorge Luis Borges
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson
The Killer Inside Me by Jim Thompson
The New York Trilogy by Paul Auster
The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
A Massive Swelling by Cintra Wilson
The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler
The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury
Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett
The Knife Thrower and Other Stories by Steven Millhauser
An Anthropologist on Mars by Oliver Sacks
In Ghostly Japan by Lafcadio Hearn
Twenty-One Stories by Graham Greene
The Day of the Dead & Other Mortal Reflections by F. Gonzalez-Crussi
The Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons
Strange Wine by Harlan Ellison
The Death and Resurrection Show by Rogan Taylor

The above list certainly reveals my fondness for the short story form. Many of the authors of short fiction listed above have also written wonderful novels (and vice-versa).
