***"The Open Window'' is Saki's most popular short story. It was first collected in Beasts and Super-Beasts in 1914.
Saki's wit is at the height of its power in this story of a spontaneous practical joke played upon a visiting stranger.
The practical joke recurs in many of Saki's stories, but "The Open Window'' is perhaps his most successful and
best known example of the type. Saki dramatizes here the conflict between reality and imagination, demonstrating
how difficult it can be to distinguish between them. Not only does the unfortunate Mr. Nuttel fall victim to the story's joke,
but so does the reader. The reader is at first inclined to laugh at Nuttel for being so gullible. However, the reader, too,
has been taken in by Saki's story and must come to the realization that he or she is also inclined to believe a well-told
and interesting tale.

Nightfall - CBC - 820924 - 13 - The Telltale Heart by E A Poe
***first published in 1843. It follows an unnamed narrator who insists on
his sanity after murdering an old man with a "vulture eye". The murder is
carefully calculated, and the murderer hides the body by cutting it into
pieces and hiding it under the floorboards. Ultimately the narrator's guilt
manifests itself in the hallucination that the man's heart is still beating under the floorboards.

Quiet Please - 480809 - 060 - The Thing on the Fourble Board ***Probably the most highly regarded episode
of Quiet, Please! is "The Thing on the Fourble Board" (August 9, 1948), about an oil-field worker who
encounters a mysterious subterranean being hiding on the derrick's catwalk. The unusual title is a bit
of oil worker argot: the "fourble board" of an oil derrick is a narrow catwalk that is as high up as four lengths
of drilling pipe placed vertically (two lengths of pipe are a "double", three are a "thribble" and four are a "fourble."
While working on the rig, Porky and his friend Billy pull up a core sample which includes a human finger, which
feels like it's made of stone. They rub the dirt and grime from the strange finger, and are surprised to see it
disappear, as though it was invisible. The stone finger drops to the floor of the oil derrick, and the men are
unable to recover it. Startled, they begin drinking whiskey, and hear strange noises high up on the oil rig.
Supernaturally Yours - The Cyprian Cat by Dorothy L. Sayers ***
Suspense - 480327 - 290 - Night Must Fall, a psychological thriller by Emlyn Williams ***Emlyn Williams' theatrical
horror piece Night Must Fall was filmed by MGM without the usual studio-imposed happy ending. Robert Montgomery
stars as Danny, a wickedly charming Irish bellhop who wins the confidence of an elderly invalid (Dame May Whitty).
The old woman's niece (Rosalind Russell) is not so easily swayed by Danny's blarney, but she finds him strangely
attractive, especially when he exhibits a streak of viciousness. Even when the possibility arises that Danny is a
wanted murderer, Rosalind is hesitant to call the police. The film's final scene, in which Danny ambles around the
house carrying a hatbox that may or may not contain Ms. Whitty's head, is unforgettable.

at eight o'clock of a misty evening in November, to put your feet upon that buckling concrete walk,
to step over grassy seams and make your way, hands in pockets, through the silences, that was
what Mr Leonard Mead most dearly loved to do. He would stand upon the corner of an intersection
and peer down long moonlit avenues of sidewalk in four directions, deciding which way to go, but it
really made no difference; he was alone in this world of 2053 A.D., or as good as alone, and with a
final decision made, a path selected, he would stride off, sending patterns of frosty air before him
like the smoke of a cigar.

***TheYellow Wallpaper details the narrator's descent into madness. The protagonist's husband
believes it is in the narrator's best interest to go on a rest cure since he only credits what is obvious.
He serves as his wife's physician, therefore treating her like a powerless patient. The story hints
that part of the woman's problem is that she recently gave birth to a child, insinuating she may be
suffering from what would, in modern times, be called postpartum psychosis.
