I'm not going to put this to a vote, because I know which one you all would pick!

UPDATE: I've actually settled upon W. Somerset Maugham's "The Appointment in Samarra". Pretty happy with it.

There must be endless
creaking and groaning*
when you stretch
those young minds.

*( or bitching and moaning.)

The Music of Erich Zahn would have been a good Lovecraft choice.

Yes indeed! That's easily one of his best. I was thinking of using "The Outsider" for its dense psychoanalytic and existentialist subtexts. Then I decided that my students might appreciate a single-page story about fate and free will as a way to wind down the class.

...Plus, if I assign even one Lovecraft story, I'll be tempted to assign all of them!
