With this ninety-three thousand word anthology,
I've brought together twenty of my stories that were intended to be humorous.
They tend to be diminutive short stories, some of them extremely so.
Sixteen of the stories have been previously published, eleven of them
in Analog Magazine. I've re-edited all of the stories, be they reprint
or not. (I'm amazed at what sympathetic editors had let me get away with.)
The success of my two tier pricing policy ($4 or Free) for my anthology
'SF++ Science Fiction Stories for Linux Geeeks'
has led me to employ it here as well. While I would be delighted were
you to buy the book from Amazon or Barnes & Nobles, you may also get
it at no cost by simply requesting a copy.
Email for your free copy: Kindle
(MOBI) or Nook
(EPUB) . I'll e-mail the book to you within a few days. In the unlikely
event that I'm flooded with requests, it might take a little longer.
