I don’t want to hijack this thread talking about twist endings.
One of my favorite authors of short stories, Saki, is mentioned, so I wondered, how many fans of this author are there on the SDMB?
I read one of his stories “The Interlopers” in a high school textbook, and went to find more. I got hooked enough that one of my current cats is name Tobermory, for a cat in a story of the same name.
Some of my other favorites are “The Toys of Peace” a story about trying to make children play in a civilized fashion. It’s just as good now as it was when first written. Then there’s “The Un-Rest Cure”, “The Schartz-Metterlume Method”, “Gabriel-Ernest”, and, of course, the famous “Sredni Vashtar”
So, how many Dopers like Saki’s work?
