Why read it?

1 author picked The Masque Of Manana as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

Robert Sheckley was a major influence on me as he mixed SF and humor, sometimes broadly and sometimes darkly. This “best of” collection – on which I got to offer my suggestions as to what should be included – really is the cream of the crop. I will always be grateful that I had the chance to meet him while he was still with us… and that before I could say a word, he thanked me for a blurb I did on another collection of his works. It was the perfect fanboy moment.

From Daniel's list on humorous science fiction and fantasy.
