I want to write short stories that connect in a subtle way. Are there any collections of works that do this. I can only think of H.P lovecraft and friends. King does that with his work but thats on a grander scale.

Gene Wolfe
Phillip K. Dick

Jesus' Son by Denis Johnson was purty good and subtle.

William Gibson did this with his short stories and the Sprawl trilogy.

You will probably find a lot of examples of what you're looking for in pulp fiction - authors like Robert E. Howard and Lovecraft. Not only in fantasy/sci-fi, but in the thriller/noir genre too.

John Barth likes to pretend the stories in 'Lost in the Funhouse' are all connected. Some of them are, and some require a bit of an ass-pull.
