    This collection is extremely funny and I like picking it up from time to time.

    There's some good stories in here, though I would say that the large majority aren't really 'funny' per se, as much as wry or sardonic. I don't know if that's just me not understanding what Humor is supposed to be. There's some that could seem funny, but in context the weird things that happen just serve to enhance the horror/weirdness/unreality, kind of like when the Joker tells a funny joke to Batman. Even with that caveat, I think it's fine. Not a lot that really stood out to me.

    While nothing in this collection was "LOL" there were quite a few chuckles and wry smiles resulting from the read. I appreciated the variety of offerings, too, from prose to poetry to cartoons - nicely done.

    Still one of my favs. I chuckle now just thinking of some of the stories that I read 20 years ago.

    I think my favorite thing in here was "A Fuller Explanation of Original Sin". A very sciencey poem that was hilarious. I love the witty humor.

    This 1982 volume of short Science Fiction humor is a mixed bag. Copyright material is dated from 1933 to 1979 and is a mixture of cartoons, poetry, and short stories. The most common sources seem to be Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine and The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Some authors were unknown to me but many are the best known names of 1950s and 1960s SF. Some of the material is dated by being overtaken by reality. Never side-splittingly funny, I found most of this 520 page This 1982 volume of short Science Fiction humor is a mixed bag.

    Not usually my type of book, but it was the book my dad was reading when he passed away 3 weeks ago and I felt it my "duty" to finish reading it for him. Honestly, I don't understand a lot of the stories--too technical or mathematical--but I'm slowly working my way through it in his honor. Would not have chosen it for myself, although there were a number of stories that I did enjoy.
