G. Wodehouse (creator of the Jeeves and Wooster series), G. K. Chesterton (creator of the Father Brown mystery series), and others. This engaging collection of classic works is the perfect way to spend your coffee break, sojourn in the waiting room, or train commutes. Encompasses a mix of genres including humor and mystery with a few more serious stories thrown in. The Stories: The Blue Cross by G. K. Chesterton My Man Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry The Red-Headed League by Arthur Conan Doyle The Inconsiderate Waiter by James Matthew Barrie The Cat by Mary E. Wilkins Freeman The She-Wolf by H. H. Munro ("Saki") The Other Two by Edith Wharton My Lady Jane by Lucy Maud Montgomery Affinities by Mary Roberts Rinehart A Little Joke by Anthony Hope The Pavilion on the Links by Robert Louis Stevenson First Lines: The Blue Cross by G. K. Chesterton Between the silver ribbon of morning and the green glittering ribbon of sea, the boat touched Harwich and let loose a swarm of folk like flies, among whom the man we must follow was by no means conspicuous—nor wished to be. There was nothing notable about him, except a slight contrast between the holiday gaiety of his clothes and the official gravity of his face. Leave it to Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse Jeeves—my man, you know—is really a most extraordinary chap. So capable. Honestly, I shouldn't know what to do without him. On broader lines he's like those chappies who sit peering sadly over the marble battlements at the Pennsylvania Station in the place marked "Inquiries." You know the Johnnies I mean. You go up to them and say: "When's the next train for Melonsquashville, Tennessee?" and they reply, without stopping to think, "Two-forty-three, track ten, change at San Francisco." And they're right every time. Well, Jeeves gives you just the same impression of omniscience. The Red-Headed League by Arthur Conan Doyle I had called upon my friend, Mr. Sherlock Holmes, one day in the autumn of last year, and found him in deep conversation with a very stout, florid-faced, elderly gentleman, with fiery red hair. With an apology for my intrusion, I was about to withdraw, when Holmes pulled me abruptly into the room, and closed the door behind me. The Cat by Mrs. E. Wilkins Freeman The snow was falling, and the Cat's fur was stiffly pointed with it, but he was imperturbable. He sat crouched, ready for the death-spring, as he had sat for hours. It was night—but that made no difference—all times were as one to the Cat when he was in wait for prey. The She-Wolf by H. H. Munro (“Saki”) Leonard Bilsiter was one of those people who have failed to find this world attractive or interesting, and who have sought compensation in an “unseen world” of their own experience or imagination—or invention. Children do that sort of thing successfully, but children are content to convince themselves, and do not vulgarise their beliefs by trying to convince other people. Leonard Bilsiter’s beliefs were for “the few,” that is to say, anyone who would listen to him. Affinities by Mary Roberts Rinehart Somebody ought to know the truth about the Devil's Island affair and I am going to tell it. The truth is generally either better or worse than the stories that get about. In this case it is somewhat better, though I am not proud of it.
