Master storyteller, H.H. Munro, better known by the pen name Saki, is famous for his witty, mischievous, and macabre stories of suspense. He specialized in impudent practical jokes, devilish trickery, and incredible yarns and his writing became popular in the early 1900s for its witty and satirical look at the pretensions and ignorance of bourgeois English society.

"cracking stories, but no table of contents!"
Another collection of 16 classic tales of the macabre and supernatural by some of the best-known writers in these genres.
"An interesting selection and great narrator"
This collection contains: "Idle Thoughts on Babies"; "The Schartz-Meterklume Method"; "A Photographer's Day Out"; and more.
"What an odd use of excellent materials"
This volume collects 16 stories from the master of wit and wisdom, Saki, who displayed an incomparable agility with delicate, humorous, stylistic prose. Included here are: "Esmé," about a hyena that adopts 2 British women, "Tobermory," featuring a talking cat, and "Sredni Vashtar," concerning demon worship, as well as "The Easter Egg," "Mrs. Packeltide's Tiger," "The Byzantine Omelette," and many more.
The Chronicles of Clovis, published in 1911, was the third in Saki (H. H. Munro)'s series of very funny and very vicious stories. As an insider, Saki was ideally poised to eviscerate the Edwardian middle class way of life, and his pitiless and magnetic sense of humour - teamed with an ability to wield that sharpest of writer's tools, the (very) short story - makes these some of the funniest and most quotable of tales. All of the running themes in Saki's work are here.
"Where has Saki been all my life?"
