Jeremy Tassoff | 135 comments I read an anthology of science-fiction short stories about 10 or so years ago. All of the stories were comedic, several of them were pun-intensive. I think there were about a dozen stories in the anthology.

One of the stories had a bit about insufficient plasma levels in the space ship's star drive, so the crew held a blood drive.

Sound familiar to anybody?

Erika | 8 comments No, but I wish there was a way to follow this so I can read it too when you find out what it is

It's not either of the titles you mentioned, but Unidentified Funny Objects sounds great. I'm adding it to my TBR list.

Thanks

Jeremy, have you tried searching on Worldcat.org? For example:

https://www.worldcat.org/advancedsearch > Subject: science fiction short stories | Keyword: funny | 1970-2010 ? | Fiction | Book | English


message 11: by Jeremy (new)

Jeremy Tassoff | 135 comments Yes, Worldcat was one of the first places I checked.
I found a bunch of science fiction short stories and/or anthologies tagged as humorous, but didn't find the specific one I'm looking for.

Jennifer (jbpuckett) I'm thinking something by Spider Robinson? Callahan's Crosstime Saloon, maybe?

Jeremy Tassoff | 135 comments It's definitely not a Spider Robinson book. I have read almost everything by him, and I'd have no trouble identifying his work.
