I had SUCH a hard time rating this, because there were some stories I genuinely liked, but also others that were more offensive than funny. I think humour, especially SF humour, works better when it retains the complexity of the genre and doesn't just aim for the cheap punchline.

Humour is a tricky beast. One woman's hilarious is another woman's "huh?" In an anthology where the goal is to include a variety of stories, it's inevitable that some of them are going to work for some people and some of them are going to work for others.

Unfortunately fewer of these worked for me than not, but in this sort of collection, maybe more than any other, YMMV.
