The Unrest-Cure and Other Stories, by Saki
I got this for Christmas! It has illustrations by Edward Gorey! I've always meant to read Saki and here was my chance. Look at that beautiful cover.
The Unrest-Cure is a collection of short stories, most of which start off as ordinary events in upper-middle-class British lives but take a sharp turn toward the weird, the oddball, or the macabre. Quite a few of them feature a young man named Clovis, who enjoys making a little trouble now and again.. They were great, and some of them were very funny, too. (Or, on the other hand, horrifying; "Sredni Vashtar" is one of the selections, for example.) There are one or two illustrations for each story and they fit perfectly.
A great book for a little relaxing dip into a weird story. I will definitely be reading more Saki.
