Most of the characters in “The Stiff” are based on real people, and whenever I reread these pages I think of them.

    How neat is it to be immortalized as a character?

    The build up is so good in this story. I have been enjoying it immensely.

    Sredni Vashtar
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    For the film, see: Sredni Vashtar (film)

    “Sredni Vashtar” is a short story written by Saki (Hector Hugh Munro) between 1900 and 1911 and initially published in his book The Chronicles of Clovis. It has been adapted for opera, film, radio and television.

    The story concerns a ten-year-old boy called Conradin, who lives with his strict cousin and guardian, Mrs. De Ropp. Conradin rebels against her and invents a new religion for himself, which centres on idolising a polecat-ferret he calls Sredni Vashtar; a vengeful, merciless god. Conradin keeps the ferret hidden in a cage in the garden shed, and worships the idol in secret. The story comes to a climax when his cousin sets out to discover his god.
