Saki: Stories and Novels | v.1.1 | 3 June 2012
These are the collected stories and novels of Saki (a.k.a. H.H. Munro, Wikipedia). He is the master of sardonic comments and wrote some of the funniest stories I’ve ever read.
This volume contains all the stories from
Reginald in Russia (1910),
The Chronicles of Clovis (1911),
Beasts and Super-Beasts (1914),
The Toys of Peace and Other Papers (1919),
The Square Egg and Other Sketches (1924),
seven uncollected stories,
and the two novels
The Unbearable Bassington (1912) and
When William Came (1913).
The texts have been reformatted, fonts are embedded, every book has its own table of contents, to which links at the end of each story/chapter bring you back. An alphabetical index of all the stories is also included.
v.1.1 | Update 4 Jun 2012
Fixed a problem with the links that weren’t displayed correctly.

Wonderful! I'd only found 2 books of Saki.
Is there any chance of having Lichtenberg some time, one of my favorite german authors? That is, the Südelbücher and/or Letters? My German is middling, and though my Zweitausendeins edition of the complete works is a pleasure, with good annotations and the right size and weight, it would be a help to have an epub edition for easy access to a fair dictionary (though I must say my Franklin electronic dictionary is better, if less convenient, for the old-fashioned vowels).

Wow, what a collection!
(How heavy would this be if you had it in a print edition?? You would need two people to lift it !)

Thanks for the collection. I remember reading "The Interlopers" long ago. I still think it has one of the most chilling endings ever. Definitely a good read on a dark and stormy night
