More About Mike Resnick


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Janis Ian began her career as a singer-songwriter in the 1960s with "Society's Child." In 1975, she won her first Grammy Award for the self-penned song, "At Seventeen" . Since then she has had #1 hits all over the world, sold more than 10 million albums, and had her songs recorded by such diverse artists as Bette Midler, Roberta Flack, and John Mellencamp. She shows no signs of slowing down, recently beginning yet another career as an audio book narrator (which earned her a ninth nomination and second Grammy in 2013 for Society's Child: My Autobiography). Among her current projects are The Tiny Mouse, her first children's book; a series of master classes with the Stella Adler School; tours of Europe, the United Kingdom, and Japan, a young adult novel, and a series of new recordings.

Mike Resnick currently resides in Cincinnati, in the state of Ohio.

Reviews - What do customers think about This Is My Funniest 2: Leading Science Fiction Writers Present Their Funniest Stories Ever (This Is My Funniest series)?

Uneven, but mostly hilarious  Aug 15, 2008
This is a collection of "funny" fantasy and SF short stories. Many are well written, many are funny, and few are both and a couple are neither.

Check out the list of authors, and if any of those are on your list of personal faves, this is worth a try.
 
Not Free SF Reader  Apr 17, 2008
An anthology of science fiction and fantasy humour, complete with infinite cover. Rather good, too, presuming the first is as good as this, it would also be worth reading. The editor says the first one of the publisher's best selling books, and not surprising either, given the quality.

Quite of it is very American of course, so won't translate as well for those less familiar with the joint than I am, perhaps. There's even a story that Sarah Hoyt says is not supposed to be funny, but apparently people think is.

The genesis of the Flint and Freer Rats and Bats books is also included.

A lot of stories here, so room for a wide range of work enough that some of it should make you life.

Resnick was right to make Pumilia and Wallace whack one of this in (if there are more?) as some of that was laugh out loud funny. He's also fairly dead on with his pirate queen name probabilities, too.
