Novellas: a life list

Naturalists use the term "life list" to define a cumulative list of species seen and recorded in a life (It's particularly common among birders.) But why not a life list of novellas? Not exactly a collective noun -- remember a murder of crows? An exaltation of larks? A covey of partridge? -- but a way of accumulating and honouring this wonderful form...

In the spirit of enthusiastic celebration, a list then. Not in alphabetical order, nor chronological order. Not by country or by theme. But as they come to mind, to memory, novellas we have known and loved...
