  • You ever revisit a childhood classic and kinda wish you didn t I ve had this one since before my Bar Mitzvah I don t know whether I bought the beaten paperback from the library or forgot to return it, but it s seen plenty of bookshelves I ve taken it down once or twice a year to reread my favorites, but now I m decided to dive in and reread them all I loved it as a kid It has to hold up, right So I ve learned a few lessons about rereading the SF F of my youth.1 If it s funny fantasy from the 50 [...]


  • Sometimes it s hard to believe how much our society has changed in just a two decades I mean, the Honeymooners had a threat of domestic violence as its catchphrase This collection of humorous fantasy stories, originally published in 1991, isn t quite as bad as all that, but many of the stories assume gender and even racial stereotypes that no longer pass muster.Some of the tales such as the contributions from Roger Zelazny and Robert Silverberg hold up extremely well Their humor is character bas [...]


  • Many different styles of comedy story with a wry twist, quite a few slightly showing their age with anachronistic stereotypes Funny and charming nonetheless Just dated.


  • I didn t find any of these stories to be funny In fact, I thought most of them were kind of disrespectful And even a bit racist.There are plenty of other ways to be funny without stereotyping and mocking groups of people POh, and this book barely has anything to do with dragons and elves Lol I m not even going to list this fantasy, because it isn t x D


  • not really very fun No elves to speak of, and one very minor mention of a dragon The cover illustration has nothing to do with any story in this book, and the humor proproted available here is really not funny.As Is by Robert Silverberg 1968 car buying usedThe Same to You Doubled by Robert Sheckley 1971 a forced, ha ha now my worst enemy will be forced to have too much sex.The Egg of the Glak by Harvey Jacobs 1969 dnfBeibermann s Soul by Mike Resnick 1988 dnfThimgs by Theodore R Cogswell 1958 dn [...]


  • I remember reading this as a teenager and being disappointed I thought I d given the book away long ago, but recently found it in a box I flipped through the stories to see if they were as bad as I remembered, and yeah, they are There s a lot of heavily forced Jewish humor that relies on racial and sexist stereotypes, and just simply isn t funny or clever There aren t many actual dragons or elves, but several immature revenge fantasies, a good deal of misogyny and shrewish women, and the token f [...]


  • Nice little collection of fantasy short stories which lean towards comedy I think in particular I liked the Roger Zelazny one, and there s another one called Savage Breasts that made me giggle There are a couple of so so stories, and that brings it down somewhat.


  • The only story that really had me laughing out loud was Savage Breasts in which a flat chested young lady ordered a chest enhancer, and boy did she get enhanced Her breasts started punching out her lovers I chuckled some at some of the other stories, but this was the stand out story for me.


  • Algumas hist rias s o engra adas, algumas n o entret m nada e uma hilariante a do homem que tinha sido amaldi oado para se transformar num animal volumoso em alturas festivas Podia ter sido uma compila o bem mais forte e impactante do que acabou por ser Um entretenimento agrad vel.


  • A marvelous and vastly entertaining collection of tales by numerous talented writers Highly recommended for any lovers of fantasy stories.


  • Great fun to read a book copyright 1991 Typewriters, books, newspapers, not a whiff of the internet took me back to when I bought it and this was relevant to the then current world Hilarious


  • Fantasy stories by such authors as Robert Silverberg, Marvin Kaye, Mike Resnick, etc Despite the title, don t expect Dragon stories, let alone ones about Elves Cute none the less
