You can have a collection of short stories, with individual copyrights
on the some of short stories and a different copyright on the collection.

The GPL requires that the terms of the GPL apply to the work as a whole --
it doesn't require you to get rid of the copyright on any individual work
[of course, there's still a problem if there's a conflict].
