I will try to add one every other day or so. I tend to favor fiction but am not above a dash into non-fiction every now and then.
Let's get started with the first recommendation:
Hector Hugh Munro (18 December 1870 – 13 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 satirised Edwardian society and culture. He is considered a master of the short story and often compared to O. Henry and Dorothy Parker. Influenced by Oscar Wilde, Lewis Carroll, and Kipling, he himself influenced A. A. Milne, Noël Coward, and P. G. Wodehouse.
I highly recommend "Regnald" a series of short stories by the same name. These are Munro's precious glimpses, hilarious in nature,
into Edwardian sensibilities.

The audio book habit is a good one to acquire. I listen when I can't sleep or when doing other things. Great catalog.
