    1. And they say that science fiction can't be funny?Joe Haldeman proved them wrong in 1974 with Cosmic Laughter: Science Fiction for the Fun of It. It was a collection of nine stories by nine very funny authors. Unfortunately the book was not a great commercial success. It wasn't long before it was out of print, and in those days before the rise of the world wide web and online book searches, it was almost impossible to find a copy outside of a library.

    2. ENGLISH: A compilation of nine science fiction short stories with humorous intent. Some are more successful than others.
