A great collection of stories that is very varied in tone, style, and interpretation. When I bought it, I figured I would be reading a lot of stories about suddenly sentient dinners at Olive Garden, or armies of Atheists battling other gods. Y'know, funny stories that were all basically the same. That is the problem I find with most themed anthologies: the stories are all basically the same.

This is not like other themed anthologies. The stories in here are connected by the thinnest of threads.
Religion makes a great many assumptions about the workings of the universe. Many throw rational thought out of the window, delivering dogma as fact. While this can cause some very heated debates with non-followers, none do it quite so humorously as the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

If you are unfamiliar with the Flying Spaghetti Monster, wikipedia has a nice article on His Noodly Goodness, or you can go to the Church's website at In short, the FSM is a divine being who doe
A lovely collection of stories paying homage to our beloved and delicious leader, the Flying Spaghetti Monster. In here, you'll find words of worship, praise, terror, awe, and you'll relish the warble of FSM's one and true song.
In many ways I enjoyed this book more than The Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. It's less repetitive and the stories are more interesting and bizarre. My only gripes about these Amazing Stories is that some of them go against his Noodliness's non-violent ways and the one story, The Black Sleeve of Destiny, really has nothing to do with the FSM.
A collection of short stories from varied writers, not surprisingly some missed target but the majority were very good (even without taking into account the FSM content).
I am interested reading some of some of the writers after this.

I'm going to throw down on some ravioli tonight to celebrate finishing this book, which will give you a hunger for both Italian food and the entire universe.
Like most people who have reviewed this book I have to say some stories were really great and others downright put me to sleep. Three stars.
Not very funny, but some of the stories are interesting.
Super weird. But pretty funny.
