    Oxford Book of Short Stories edited by VS Pritchett
    The Secret Self edited by Hermione Lee
    are both pretty good in terms of covering the Literary canon and the world literature.

    However neither include any science fiction or fantasy. So, for Year 10 I made my own anthology as I wanted a broader range of genres (I included short stories by JK Rowling, Neil Gaiman, Issac Asimov, Katherine Mansfield, Kate Chopin, Ernest Hemmingway, O Henry and VS Naipaul).
