Munro, 1870-1916) is killingly funny.  He was inspired by Oscar Wilde and Lewis Carroll a generation before him, and in turn inspired P.G. Wodehouse, Graham Greene, and A.A. Milne.  In our generation, he influenced Edward Gorey, who illustrated his book, THE UNREST-CURE AND OTHER STORIES (New York Review Books, 2013.)  It is a perfect match.
