Introduction

F. Scott Fitzgerald, whose fame rests largely upon his novels, especially The Great Gatsby (1925), also wrote dozens upon dozens of short stories that literally provided him with his livelihood, many of which made their initial appearances in The Saturday Evening Post and Esquire.

In total, one hundred eighty-one short stories by Fitzgerald, both published and unpublished, are listed below. Of these, one is shared in authorship with Zelda Fitzgerald (her other ten stories are noted also), and another was classified by Fitzgerald as a burlesque. A few others were classified as stories, although with a question mark, by Fitzgerald. Volumes of Fitzgerald's works in which these stories are collected are noted, with contents explained.

Most of the information presented here has been collected before in different formats and arrangement: This webpage owes much to the previous bibliographical work of Matthew J. Bruccoli and Jackson R. Bryer--and Fitzgerald's own Ledger (see sources listed below for more information). What makes this bibliography of F. Scott Fitzgerald's stories most unique are two things: first, its arrangement of the stories by periodical, rather than in alphabetical order by title or chronological order by date of publication; second, notes for the original appearances of the stories in periodicals are cited with the bibliographical entries for Flappers and Philosophers, Tales of the Jazz Age, All the Sad Young Men, and Taps at Reveille, which are the four collections of short stories assembled by Fitzgerald during his lifetime.

Although this compilation is devoted mostly to Fitzgerald's short stories, his five plays are noted, and brief citations are given for Fitzgerald's five novels.
