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.
No offense taken, I just finished doing that, actually, but was unsure if it would work well, as I'm not use to having to convert lrf files.
