The Complete Saki by SakiHector Hugh Munro is perhaps the most graceful spokesman for Englands golden afternoon--those slow and peaceful years prior to the outbreak of World War I. The good wit of bad manners, elegantly spiced with irony and deftly controlled malice, has made Saki stories small, perfect gems of the English language. Here for the first time, are the collected writings of Saki--including all of his short stories (Reginald, Reginald in Russia, The Chronicles of Clovis, Beasts and Super-Beasts The Toys of Peace, and The Square Egg), his three novels (THE UNBEARABLE BASSINGTON, WHEN WILLIAM CAME and THE WESTMINSTER ALICE), and three plays (THE DEATHTRAP, KARL-LUDWIGS WINDOW and THE WATCHED POT. You are invited to meet once again Clovis, Reginald, the Unbearable Bassington, and the other memorable characters etched so superbly by the pen of H.H. Munro. In all literature, he was the first to employ successfully a wildly outrageous premise in order to make a serious point. I love that. And today the best of his stories are still better than the best of just about every other writer around.--Roald Dahl. Introduction by Noel Coward.(less)
Q & A with Tui T. Sutherland
The novels are set in the fictional dragon -inhabited continents of Pyrrhia and Pantala, and chronicle the quests of young dragons to fulfill prophecies. Each book is written from the perspective of a different character. The first arc is centered around a prophecy, delivered by the NightWing Morrowseer, that foretells that five chosen dragonets will put an end to the year war ravaging Pyrrhia. It's called the Dragonet Prophecy and the poem begins:. Clay has lived his whole life under the mountain. The MudWing dragonet knows that war is raging between the dragon tribes in the world outside - a war that he and four other dragonets are destined to end, according to the mysterious Prophecy they've been taught. The five "chosen" dragonets were stolen from their homes while they were still in their eggs - and hidden away for years - all to fulfill the prophecy.
