Short Stories from Project Gutenberg

Project Gutenberg (PG) is a volunteer effort to digitize and archive cultural works, to "encourage the creation and distribution of eBooks."  It was founded in 1971 by Michael S. Hart and is the oldest digital library. Most of the items in its collection are the full texts of public domain books. These items are free and can be read online or downloaded.  As of February 2017, Project Gutenberg has over 53,000 items in its collection.

The project is named after Johannes Gutenberg, the fifteenth century German printer who propelled the  moving type printing press revolution.
