Saki (H.H. Munro) (1870 - 1916) was the author of numerous short stories, often humorous and macabre, and full of eccentric wit and unconventional situations. His best known collections include Reginald (1904) and The Chronicles of Clovis (1911). He also wrote the novel The Unbearable Bassington (1912), a marvelous social satire of the upperclass Edwardian world. He was killed on the Western Front during the First World War.
