Billboard magazine had this to say about The World's Shortest Stories Vol. 1, "What is most impressive in this collection of great stories is the sheer variety. Let's hope a second volume of these tiny gems will not be long in coming!"

Well, here it is!

Love and death, and all of the horror in between. A second helping of the most amazing short stories ever written-each one just 55 words long! Imagine O. Henry's tales if he'd only had the back of a business card to write upon.
