Roald Dahl’s parents were Norwegian, but he was born in Llandaff, Glamorgan, in 1916 and educated at Repton School. On the outbreak of the Second World War, he enlisted in the RAF at Nairobi. He was severely wounded after joining a fighter squadron in Libya, but later saw service as a fighter pilot in Greece and Syria.

Included in Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected are such notorious . Well, mostly because I've only read childrens' books by Roald Dahl.

Included in Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected are such notorious gems of the bizarre as "The Sound Machine," "Lamb to Slaughter," "Neck," and "The Landlady. Cover illustration by Seth Jaben Cover design by Heidi North. Roald Dahl's tales really are unexpected; there were many instances when the story took a twist that I was shocked by, a twist that I hadn't expected at all. And that makes the stories all the more delicious. They're aptly named, that's for sure, and I loved them.

This further collection of Roald Dahi’s adult short stories, from his world-famous books, again includes many seen in the television series, TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED.

The Collected Short Stories of Roald Dahl, Volume 2. Annotation. This further collection of Roald Dahi’s adult short stories, from his world-famous books, again includes many seen in the television series, TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED. Through the stories runs a vein of macabre malevolence, springing from slight, almost inconsequential everyday things. These bizarre plots-spiced with vibrant characters and subtle twists and turns-are utterly addictive.

The Minpins was Roald Dahl's last children's book. Like many of his other stories, it was partially inspired by the countryside around where he lived. The wood at the top of the field behind Roald's house was even known as the Minpin forest. It also has a connection to another of his books - Little Billy's mother tells him that the Forest of Sin is home to creatures including Vermicious Knids, which are the alien-like creatures that also appear in Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator. The Minpins was published in 1991, not long after Roald's death in November 1990

This collection showcases sixteen of Roald Dahl’s finest tales, taken from Kiss Kiss and Someone Like You. There are tales of the risk-takers, such as the man who wagers his daughter’s hand in marriage to a wine connoisseur, or the traveller who throws himself overboard on a cruise liner to win a bet. Here too is the understated cruelty of Edward the Conqueror, in which a mysterious cat seems to threaten domestic life, or the innocuous-seeming Landlady, whose guests stay for longer than they intend.

Dahl is a master at introducing readers to a new sense of what lurks beneath the ordinary. From the publication of James and the Giant Peach and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the 1960s to his death in 1990, Roald Dahl became the most successful children's author in the world. From the Inside Flap. Dahl is a master at introducing readers to a new sense of what lurks beneath the ordinary. Nearly twenty years later, a fresh generation of children seek out his work with instinctive fanaticism. His creations endure – through Hollywood movies, theatre adaptations and musical works, but still most potently of all through the pure magic of his writing upon the page.

Who doesn't love Roald Dahl, whatever he writes? Can you imagine that his teachers in grade school told him that he had no future as a writer. Thankfully the guy never took such criticism to heart (a lesson to teach our kids - don't listen to people who say you can't do something, when you not only can - but you're meant to). Et voila - a terrifically entertaining collection of his short stories for adults. I especially love William and Mary.

I got back into Roald Dahl (after loving his kids books long ago) after watching the Alfred Hitchcock Presents shows he's written, like the Man from the South, where Steve McQueen ends up betting a finger. That's the awesome power of a twisted Roald Dahl, he can write the sinister, calculating villans incredibly well. This book is choc full of them, twisting situations into power struggles and dominating the weak minded with carefully constructed monologues. I couldn't recommend this hard to find book enough.

I loved the stories in this book, especially Mrs Bixby and the Colonel's coat. This book is perfect for a "story before bedtime" to read just before bed because the stories aren't that long. If you are a fan of Tales Of The Unexpected TV show or shows like Twilight Zone then this is a good book for you.

this book are also in the book: Collected Stories by Dahl.A plus in the
collected stories is that there also ones not in, Tales of the Unexpected.

Roald Dahl, in my opinion, is one of the greatest authors of all time. His books for children are well known, but the huge amount of writing he produced in his lifetime for adults is often played down or overlooked entirely. I'm never disappointed with his stories. He was a true creative genius with the written word.

Short stories that are mind-Fs. Perfect book for me.
Interesting stories most were the same as the Tales of the Unexpected.
