"Upon seeing this in a bookstore my reaction was "hmm... this looks pretty damn good", and upon seeing it contained a Pratchett short (one I already have admitedly) I thought 'hmm... couldn't be too bad' and purchased it. I had pretty high expectations and to be honest it didn't meet them- but I did still like the collection. I wouldn't really describe this personally as a humourous collection- there were *very* few 'laugh out loud' moments. I would however describe it as a comical collection. Depending on your tastes you might enjoy it better than I- but personally I think as a humourous collection it fails, but just as an interesting anthology with a sense of the comical it was a decent read- there were very few stories that were actually outstanding, but even less that were below par- it just kind of skims along."
