About the Author:

Mike Resnick is a four-time Hugo Award winner and the author of 45 science fiction novels, including Dragon America, A Gathering of Widowmakers, and Starship: Mutiny, 9 nonfiction books, 12 collections, 175 short stories, and 2 screenplays. He lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.

From School Library Journal:

Adult/High School—Each story in this collection by 29 contributors is introduced in a note that gives readers some background such as why/when it was written and/or why Resnick chose it for this anthology. Some are send-ups of specific types of writing, such as space opera (Harry Harrison), fantasy/romance crossover (Esther Friesner), academic literary criticism (Connie Willis), and Greek myth (Harry Turtledove). Others are the imagined results of certain situations: LSD in New York City's water supply (written in the mid-'60s by William Tenn), contemporary California girl meets dangerous alien (Robert Silverberg), simultaneous periods and PMS in a village of warrior women (Jody Lynn Nye), an alien on a talk radio show tells certain truths to the human race (Nick DiChario). All are truly funny. Fans will recognize many of the authors listed above and others such as Joe Haldeman, Robert Scheckley, Jane Yolen, Jack McDevitt, and David Gerrold. Despite the humor, this collection will appeal primarily to science fiction readers.—Sandy Freund, Patrick Henry Library, Fairfax County, VA
