Description

Who better to parody science fiction than science fiction authors themselves? *** In this classic collection of stories, compiled by Mike Resnick (winner of five Hugos, plus a plethora of other awards in multiple categories), such prominent authors as Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Barry Malzberg and a host of others take their pens and wits to make fun of themselves and the genre they live for. *** This collection was originally titled Shaggy B.E.M. Stories and was compiled exclusively for the 1988 Worldcon (Nolacon II). Seventy- five percent of the original edition sold out over the Worldcon weekend and the rest disappeared soon after. *** Phoenix Pick is proud to republish this classic collection of parodies. All the original stories are included and the only changes that have been made are corrections of typos and other mistakes. One new poem ('There's a Bimbo on the Cover' by Michael F. Flynn) has been added to the book for obvious reasons-it just begged to belong to this irreverent collection.

About the Author

ARTHUR C. CLARKE, one of the most influential figures in twentieth-century science fiction, has written over fifty novels and cocreated the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.
To list Isaac Asimov's honors, as to list his books, would be excessive. Let it simply be noted that Isaac Asimov was the most famous, most honored, most widely read, and most beloved science fiction author of all time. In his five decades as an author, he wrote more than four hundred books, won every award his readers and colleagues could contrive to give him, and provided pleasure and insight to millions. He died in 1992, still at work.
The late Mike Resnick, was named Locus magazine's all-time leading award winner for short science fiction, was the author of 61 novels, 225 short stories, and 2 screenplays, and was the editor of 48 anthologies. He lived in Cincinnati, Ohio.
