Summary (From the publisher):

"Lord Arthur Savile's Crime," the first story in this collection, is a masterpiece of polished cynicism, in which poison, explosive clocks and finally murder forerun married bliss. Two of Oscar Wilde’s best-loved stories for children are also included, together with “The Canterville Ghost” (the tale of a resourceful spook thoroughly terrorized by his new American owners) and “The Portrait of Mr. W.H.” a brilliant piece of scholarly detection.

These eight stories were produced in the heyday of Oscar Wilde’s career, between 1887 and 1891, when he delighted polite society with epigrams and controversy, and when he was writing at the height of his creative powers.
