This is a marvelous collection, worth its high Kindle price, as it is the most complete you can get -- but where are "Myra Meets His Family" and "The Popular Girl" among others?
On the internet I found a list of Fitzgerald's complete stories by magazine, and these stories and more were listed there but do not appear in this collection. Strangely, they were SATURDAY EVENING POST stories, contemporary with "The Offshore Pirate" and other works this collection does have -- so I'm confused about what's happening.
I suspect there are legal problems with the stories that aren't included. One or two of them appear in Bruccoli anthologies of Fitzgerald's minor works, though -- so I'm confused all over again.
Nevertheless! This is a great collection, and Fitzgerald got great surprisingly fast, coming up with definitive flapper stories like "The Offshore Pirate" within three or four stories after his first appearance in the SATURDAY EVENING POST. You can't go far wrong with this collection and it's better than anything else out there.

About the Author
F. Scott Fitzgerald was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, in 1896. He attended Princeton University, joined the United States Army during World War I, and published his first novel, This Side of Paradise, in 1920. That same year he married Zelda Sayre and for the next decade the couple lived in New York, Paris, and on the Riviera. Fitzgerald’s masterpieces include The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby, and Tender Is the Night. He died at the age of forty-four while working on The Last Tycoon. Fitzgerald’s fiction has secured his reputation as one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Excellent selection of short stories and the play.Reviewed in the United States on 6 March 2017
The short stories are well organized and allow a reader to sample a cross section of FSF writings in the short story format.
