In the News (Tue 23 Jul 19)

  
  Saki
Saki's stories were full of witty sayings - such as "The cook was a good cook, as cooks go; and as cooks go she went." Sometimes they also included coded references to homosexuality.
Saki was born Hector Hugh Munro in Akyab, Burma (now Myanmar), the son of Charles Augustus Munro, an inspector-general in the Burma police.
Among Saki's most frequently anthologized short stories is 'Tobermory', in which a cat, who has seen too much scandal through country house windows, learns to talk and starts to repeat the guests' vicious comments about each other.

 Saki   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Saki was the pseudonym of writer Hector Hugh Munro (1870-1916).
Most of his tales were acerbic satires on the stuffy English upper class, but several contained elements of the fantastic: werewolves, ghosts, witches, etc. The novel When William Came (1913) is borderline SF because it correctly predicted World War I and English reactions to it.
Despite his age, cynicism, and marginal health, Saki enlisted in the British army during World War I. Though offered commissions, he refused, believing he should learn to be a soldier before commanding them.
