Agatha Christie has a few good short stories collections.
The Listerdale Mystery is light-hearted stories.
Poirot Investigates has some strong mystery stories.
The Hound of Death is supernatural stories.
It may be harder to track these down because they're out of print, but the Black Widowers series of books by Isaac Asimov are awesome. They are mysteries told in the format of a dinner party where a guest tells the group something mysterious that happened to them, and they come up with ideas, but their butler solves the mysteries.
That reminds me, The Thirteen Problems is another good Agatha Christie collection featuring Miss Marple.
