    Great bunch of stories in general, although I personally can’t stand H. P. Lovecraft, so had to trudge through “In the Vault”, the obligatory offering by the master of ridiculously long paragraphs and zero dialogue. “The Brazilian Cat’, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, took a while to jump start but once it did it went along nicely. Saki’s “The Open Window” is a great story but my favourite among this lot was the wacky “The Misanthrope” by J. D. Beresford.
