Saki's Centenary

It's very nearly 100 years since the death of one of my favourite writers, Hector Hugh Munro, aka Saki.

He was killed at the Somme on November 14, 1916. His work is not exactly forgotten (it's never been out of print since he died), but it deserves a wider audience.

If you're new to Saki, his Wikipedia entry will give you the basics.

I've also set up a Saki Centenary Facebook page which will be posting various Saki-related links from now on.

I'll also shortly be announcing a very limited edition new Saki publication, returning a lost story of his to print for the first time in over a century...
