One of the most famous short stories in the history of short stories - The Lottery. A small town annually chooses a person to be 'neutralized' by the townfolk to ensure a good harvest the following year. They choose stones to determine, and then... It's terrfying, but really, isn't life in general. The book was initially published in the New Yorker and received hate mail for its graphicness, and was also banned in some countries. Includes other stories too. New copy via Paris, cool cover!
