I found a copy of the Saki stories, but both people who reviewed the Kindle edition complained about bad formatting.
If you go to the E-Books section of this forum, then choose miscellaneous as format you'll be in the e-book uploads section. Click on format and change it to ALL. Enter "short fiction" for the genre. Click on S in the alphabetical toolbar. Saki will be the entry right after the Sabatini selections. The very first choice for Saki is Beasts, Super Beasts in a zipped LRF format.

Now, if you download and unzip the LRF file and enter it in Calibre, it will easily and quickly convert to Mobi and will have a perfectly accessible table of contents. I've tried it and it works perfectly on my Kindle 3.

Of course, Saki might not win, but this is a useful edition of one of his best collections for anyone who would like to sample his writing in a decent format for free.

BTW Nyssa, You may well know how to do this already but your post was a useful excuse to tell others about this edition. Please don't take offense.
