    Humor in SF fantasy is difficult I say this after having read a number of works that have attempted it Often the jokes fall flat, or are quickly dated.Having said that, this collection by Anderson and Dickson is a true classic This is at least the third time I ve reread the short stories in this collection, and the second time I ve read the novella Star Prince Charlie also included in the book While there is some datedness in the tropes, the effect is that it reflects old school space oper Humor in SF fantasy is difficult I say this after having read a number of works that have attempted it Often the jokes fall flat, or are quickly dated.Having said that, this collection by Anderson and Dickson is a true classic This is at least the third time I ve reread the short stories in this collection, and the second time I ve read the novella Star Prince Charlie also included in the book While there is some datedness in the tropes, the effect is that it reflects old school space opera, rather than really taking the reader out of the story.I m convinced that the Star Trek original series episode A Piece of th...

    The Hoka from Toka are a furry bundle of fun While the first two short stories in Hokas Pokaswere okay, by FAR the most fun to be had in this book are the shorts in Hoka Hoka HokaI was originally introduced to the adorable little fuzzballs via Joy in Mudville in the grouping offered in The Infinite Arena compiled by Terry Carr , a collection of sci fi short stories I adored the Hoka so much I wanted to readabout them, so imagine my pleasure when I found out the complete Hoka storie The Hoka from Toka are a furry bundle of fun While the first two short stories in Hokas Pokaswere okay, by FAR the most fun to be had in this book are the shorts in Hoka Hoka HokaI was originally introduced to the adorable little fuzzballs via Joy in Mudville in the grouping offered in The Infinite Arena compiled by Terry Carr , a collection of sci fi short stories I adored the Hoka so much I...

    A collection of three Hoka books, while cost effective, lowered the overall rating.The first book, Hoka,Hoka, Hoka is HILARIOUS Laugh out loud funny FIVE STARS I m still chuckling when I think about the space patrol adventure.The second bookof same but not so much An OK THe Third book. Prince Charlie only had one Hoka as a minor character, and definitively a good kids story Good, but nowhere near the joy of reading the first book.I was so hoping the series would expand and A collection of three Hoka books, while cost effective, lowered t...

    If you have never read any of the Hoka stories, you owe it to yourself to do so Gordon Dickson and Poul Anderson both wrote stories based on the bear like Hoka, and they are all very good This particular edition, The Sound and the Furry, is out of print, but you can usually find one for sale on Aa...
