Book Title: 

I really like having collections of short stories on hand - I try to keep one in the car, and salted around various other locations so that I have something to dip into if I'm short of time, or in the middle of other things.  This is an older collection that I only recently found.

Book Title: 

Another fantastic short story collection that I've been on the lookout for.  The title "Crosstown Traffic" gives you a bit of a hint on the concept - this is a collection of stories from well known writers at the time (and many who have endured) that blur the genre lines.  Whilst there is crime at the heart of each of these stories, the settings and often the style are very much cross-genre.

Worth it for each of the stories, and for the introduction which explains the concept and expands on the reactions of the writers.
