Anstey, F.: Salted Almonds. v1. 02 Dec 2021

A collection of seventeen short pieces. Seven of these are presented as little playlets, satirizing contemporary manners and morals.

The remaining pieces are on a different level — each a fantastical short story. Amongst others, we have someone’s spirit inheriting a monkey, a novelist’s characters coming to visit him, a man who believes his love’s spirit has returned to him in the form of a seagull, a demon making a pact with a man so that he will pronounce his H’s, and an encounter with a princess and a dragon in a snow globe.

(— adapted from Goodreads review)

============
Thomas Anstey Guthrie (8 August 1856 – 10 March 1934) was an English author (writing as F. Anstey), most noted for his comic novel Vice Versa about a boarding-school boy and his father exchanging identities. His reputation was confirmed by The Tinted Venus and many humorous parodies in Punch magazine. Guthrie became an important member of the staff of Punch , in which his “Voces Populi” pieces and his humorous parodies of a reciter’s stock-pieces (“Burglar Bill,” etc.) represent his best work. Many of Anstey’s stories have been adapted into theatrical productions and motion pictures.
