          Sinopsis
          Saki's (a.k.a Hector Hugh Munro) unique brand of humor has resonated with readers for over a century. Both macabre and also at times vicious, his writing nonetheless manages to perfectly capture the trivial absurdities of the Edwardian era in England.His subjects are almost always louche members of the upper classes - in particular his perfectly observed anti-heroes such as Clovis and Reginald - who wouldn't feel out of place in the world of P.G Wodehouse's 'Bertie Wooster'.The fatal flaw of hypocrisy receives particular attention in Saki's world, with vengeful justice often meted out in the most unlikely and unexpected fashion by birds, beasts and children alike.This collection contains both novels by Saki, all of his short story collections, and also his individual short stories the were published outside collections - in total 145 separate works.
          Acerca de Saki

          Hector Hugo Munro, better known by his pen name Saki, was born in Burma in 1870. He came to England for schooling following the early death of his mother, and was raised by his grandmother. After much travelling he followed in his fathers footsteps and worked for the Indian Imperian Police in Burma, before falling ill and returning to England to pursue a career in journalism. He published his first book, The Rise of the Russian Empire, in 1900. Throughout his writing career he worked as a foreign correspondent and fought in World War I, during which he was killed by a sniper in 1916. He was considered a master of the short story.

          Acerca de Hector Hugh Munro

          Saki, seudónimo con el que se conoce al escritor escocés Hector Hugh Munro, nació en Birmania, actual Myanmar, en 1870. Su padre era inspector general de la Policía birmana, cuando este país pertenecía aún al Imperio Británico. Al quedar huérfano, fue enviado a Devon, Inglaterra, con unos parientes puritanos de personalidad severa e intransigente, la convivencia con los cuales amargaría para siempre su carácter. Allí comenzó a escribir como articulista. Fue corresponsal en los Balcanes, Rusia, Polonia y Francia. Cultivó la sátira social. Entre sus obras, destacan las colecciones de cuento Animales y más que animales y Crónicas de Clovis. Estas últimas fueron publicándose como artículos en el Westminster Gazette; la primera edición en libro fue en 1911. Saki murió en 1916.
