Academic texts which also include an accessible short story cycle

I have included both academic texts which analyze the short story cycle as a form in general, as well as texts which specifically analyze famous short story cycles (e.g. James Joyce’s Dubliners) if that text also has some level of substantial focus on the form itself.

Along the way, I will also include texts that analyze the short story cycle form of storytelling in other media such as film, audio, and hypertext.

Authors of the academic texts have their surnames CAPITALIZED (e.g. “DOE – John”).
