'Salome danced': Short but powerful. I'm not even sure I liked this story, but it's stuck with me.
A great short story by Tananarive Due, 'Patient Zero'. I'm a sucker for dystopias, especially when there's a virus involved.
And technically, the final offering isn't short fiction, but it's too diverting to be passed up! Blogger Hyaline Prosaic shares an amazing find: a 1945 diary of an American girl, put online by her son, and linked with pictures and trivia of the era. Amazing.
