I'm looking for short stories of historical fiction. Can anyone recommend specific titles, authors, or books?

The frum magazines sometimes print such stories, but I have no idea how I would go about finding them now, unless they've been published in anthologies or someone has some collected in a binder and would like to share it with me.

Any suggestions?

Not all historical fiction, but Caravan by EG Schwartz.

Yehudis Litvak writes historical fiction. Mostly for hamodia. You can contact them.

Depending on how short you want and who you want the audience to be, consider Morning Girl by Michael Dorris. The book is a well-written children's book of about 75 (larger print) pages depicting a native family on a Bahamian Island in 1492. It won an award for best children/young adult historical fiction in 1993, as well as receiving multiple other commendations.

There's a frum historian in Baltimore, Rabbi Dovid Katz, who wrote an anthology of historical fiction. Possibly more than one. I saw it a relative's house and couldn't find it on Amazon, etc. I'd love to read the rest of it and more of his work.

It doesn't matter which era. I'll be teaching the genre in general, so any time period works as long as the story itself is short enough to cover in a single period (45 minutes).

I'm looking into the suggestions so far. Thank you, and please keep them coming.
