And they say that science fiction can t be funnyJoe 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 You wouldn t believe what I had to do to get my copyBut times change and Cosmic Laughter eventually came back into print which is good news for all fans of science fiction and humorSome of the stories have gone on to become uite well known in the SF field Others unfortunately have been forgotten But that s a pity because Haldeman demonstrated a rare sense of humor as a compilerThe storiesA Slight Miscalculation by Ben Bova This is in essence a great joke worked into the form of a short SF story A scientist discovers that a slight error can have surprising and even earth shaking conseuencesIt s a Bird It s a Plane by Norman Spinrad The title gives the subject away of course a Man of Steel Or rather many of them a Superman craze has taken over the world and it s up to the hero psychiatrist to save the day Possibly the funniest story in the bookThe Robots Are Here by Terry Carr A dark story of sorts uite well written The dialog is particularly clever and will stay with you Even when I d forgotten the story itself the laughter simulation of the robot stuck in my head But I have to admit that I don t particularly like downer endings so this is my least favorite story of the bunchI of Newton by Joe Haldeman Another story which is at its heart a really funny joke in this case a pact with the Devil joke and a very clever one to boot You may find yourself trying to tell it to your friendsThe Men Who Murdered Mohammed by Alfred Bester A brilliant and funny time travel story with a uniue take on the concept Bester isn t noted for his humor but here he displays a mastery of itTo Serve Man by Damon Knight This is the story which was made famous by The Twilight Zone of course and was later parodied on The Simpsons I find it depressing how not so it s not one of my favorites But then if you ve already read or seen the punchline and you almost certainly have the story loses its strongest card the element of surpriseThe Bomb in the Bathtub by Thomas N Scortia A light screwball comedy about an intelligent bomb that wants to blow up the universe shades of Dark Star anyone But this story came first The issue is complicated by the bomb s rather difficult and amusing personality This feels like a series and a very funny one but I don t know if Scortia wrote any of itThe Black Sorcerer of the Black Castle by andrew j offut or black offut as he puts it here How many short stories have their own full page glossary at the end offut created the ultimate parody of the Conan stories and it swell how many ways can I say incredibly funny in one review This story is one of my favorites and if you ve ever read a Conan book you will re read this story and laugh than onceGallegher Plus by Henry Kuttner At last a story that was part of a series although unfortunately a very hard one to find Robots Have No Tails and Proud Robot Kuttner s Galloway Gallagher series of shorts are about a genius inventor who is only a genius when he s drunk When he sobers up he forgets when why what and how he came up with his inventions and inevitably trouble is the result Gallagher s short conversation with his stomach has stuck in my mind for decades Gallegher Plus is the longest story in the book and certainly one of the funniestI can t really express how funny Kuttner s Gallagher stories are He s not as well remembered now as he should be and it s a terrible pity that he died so young It just occurred to me that Kuttner s Gallagher is not the only comic SF series protagonist who is a genius inventor in his subconscious but not in his conscious mind The same is true of Papa Schimmelhorn the hero of Reginald R Bretnor s Schimmelhorn stories Schimmelhorn File and Schimmelhorn s Gold There are many other funny science fiction writers come to think of it in retrospect there could have been a whole series of Cosmic Laughters featuring the humor of Fredric Brown Ron Goulart and Robert Sheckley
