    1. Hector Hugh Munro, better known by the pen name Saki, was born in Akyab, Burma now known as Sittwe, Myanmar , was a British writer, whose witty and sometimes macabre stories satirized Edwardian society and culture He is considered a master of the short story and is often compared to O Henry and Dorothy Parker His tales feature delicately drawn characters and finely judged narratives The Open Window may be his most famous, with a closing line Romance at short notice was her speciality that has entered the lexicon In addition to his short stories which were first published in newspapers, as was the custom of the time, and then collected into several volumes he also wrote a full length play, The Watched Pot, in collaboration with Charles Maude two one act plays a historical study, The Rise of the Russian Empire, the only book published under his own name a short novel, The Unbearable Bassington the episodic The Westminster Alice a Parliamentary parody of Alice in Wonderland , and When William Came, subtitled A Story of London Under the Hohenzollerns, an early alternate history He was influenced by Oscar Wilde, Lewis Carroll, and Kipling, and himself influenced A A Milne, No l Coward, and P G Wodehouse

    2. Saki has been recommended to me many times by friends His stories could be considered short short fiction, as most of them range from 3 to 5 pages His brevity yet thoroughness is impressive, as he manages to include all necessary plot details in an unimposing way Many contemporary short fiction writers try to excuse plot gaps and lack of detail by waving the wand of stream of consciousness in the reader s face or by labeling it prose poetry.My only hesitations lie in the campy simplicity of his [...]

    3. This is a fantastic collection of short stories The author packs so much detail and imagination into each one and they are only a few pages long They are both funny and dark at the same time I can t thank my friend Myra enough for sending me this one

    4. A fine collection of short stories that may seem outdated to some, but thoroughly enjoyable His classic tale called Sredni Vashtar is included in this volume, but the one that surprised me was tale titled The Easter Egg It is just as, or even so, shocking than the forementioned story that Saki is always associated with The gamut of the stories within are only a few pages long, but they are humorous and ironic than horrifying I noticed a character that appears in most of the stories by the name [...]

    5. A terrific short story writer whose biting wit is almost always right on target Each of these stories can be read in just a few minutes and yet each is a totally self contained gem of wit and insight into the human or at least the early 20th century British condition that leaves an indelible mark on the reader His death on the battlefield during the First World War was a terrible loss to literature.
