...Horror...

The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe

"I think it was his eye! yes, it was this! He had the eye of a vulture –a pale blue eye, with a film over it. Whenever it fell upon me, my blood ran cold; and so by degrees – very gradually –I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever.”

The Monkey's Paw by W.W. Jacobs

One paw. Three wishes. An enormous price.

A Modest Proposal by Jonathan Swift

'Through Time and Space with Ferdinand Feghoot' by Reginald Bretnor

Feghoots are a long-running series of short science fiction pieces that were published in various magazines over several decades. Each humorous Feghoot follows a fundamental formula in which the title character has to solve a problem bedeviling some manner of being or extricate himself from a dangerous situation.

'The Mouse' by H.H. Munro (Saki)

Considered one of Saki's lighter and more purely humorous stories, 'The Mouse' is about a socially awkward man and his difficulties in dealing with a mouse climbing up the leg of his pants...
