This collection of 31 short stories has just about every unusual and tongue in cheek humorous genre that you could possibly think of; from alien invasions and time travel to demonic possession.
I originally thought this collection would be a bit wacky, and it was certainly unusual, but the surprise element was just how well written they all are.
I also thought it might make for a disjointed reading experience with so many different authors, but not a bit of it. It was practically seamless and ever

A crazy collection of humorous takes on the zombie/post apocalytic/ etc. genres. Although I tend to prefer my humor a little less broad, I had to admire the creativity and fun in this jumble of alternate alternate realities, and confess to an out loud chuckle in places. A great read for when you are in the mood for something light, and need a little relief from all those heavy treatments of the plaque outbreaks. Enjoy!

“An anthology of humorous stories in the Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror genres.”

A most interesting read! A combination of authors: Aaron Austin, Adam Millard, Dan Doerflein, Eric James Spanneman, A.B. Rinkin, Felicia Lee, Gavin Cruickshank, Jason Bougger, John H.Dromey, Josh Strnad, Lance Manion etc., have put a combination of stories: science fiction, horror, humor together in one book. Some of these stories just plain startled me, some made me just out and out laugh out loud, some made m

This book is really funny! It's mostly, but not ALL, science fiction stories by various authors. It would have been a five star book if ALL of the stories had been laugh-out-loud funny, but alas some of them just got a smile. Some of the stories are filled with bad puns, others are so absurd that they are funny, and one or two were outright hilarious. If you're looking for a book to bring a smile to your face then this is it.

I was fortunate enough to get an early copy of this book and I can't stop laughing. It has something for every reader; undead politicians, homicidal GMOs, wild library books with wranglers for librarians, and so much more. Both the quality and quantity of stories guarantee that every reader can find something to enjoy.
