Humorous, it is. I didn't catch myself laughing out loud, but there are some funny stories in here. Reads nicely, great on the bedside table. ( )

A collection of short stories from some of the best comic fantasy writers of this and last century. Mike Ashley introduces each story with a short biography of the writer.

Stand outs are Terry Prachett's Troll Bridge (the Billy Goats Gruff story from the Troll's point of view) and Tom Holt's story of a time travelling pizza delivery shop. ( )
