Experiments in Human Nature is an impressive collection that showcases the talents of a master storyteller familiar with the ins and outs of the human condition. Once again the collection is ideal for classroom study and discussion for children aged 12-15 years. Montressor invites -- rather tricks --his friend, Fortunato, into tasting some wine stored back at his pallazo in the wine cellar. I enjoy curating anthologies for similar reasons–it’s a lot of fun to see what diverse stories writers come up with when given the same theme or topic.

Some of my personal favorites were �NM� and �Chupacabra.� If you like gore, many of these tales have it, if you like violent sex, that�s here too. Of course, the witch who lives there has other plans for those who hope for something without much in payment. Because it has richness of theme, a touch of comedy, finely etched characters, a deep understanding of Indian tradition. There are many other excellent collections from Margaret Mahy for readers aged 6-10.
