Hector Hugh Munro (18 December 1870 – 14 November 1916), better known by the pen name Saki and also frequently as H. H. Munro, was a British writer whose witty, mischievous and sometimes macabre stories satirize Edwardian society and culture.
Most of us think living in the country sounds a lot more peaceful than a bustling town. That's certainly what Sylvia Seltoun expects in Saki's ''The Music on the Hill.'' After battling the ''cold hostility of his family'' and his own resistance to commitment, Sylvia managed to tie Mortimer down in matrimony. Her even bigger accomplishmet is that she succeeded in ''settling him down'' by getting him to move to his country house at Yessney. A couple apparently run into some ancient forces when they move to the country.
