Bug-Eyed Monsters and Bimbos [PDF]

by Mike Resnick
Who better to parody science fiction than science fiction authors themselves?

In this classic collection of stories, compiled by Mike Resnick (winner of five Hugos, plus a plethora of other awards in multiple categories), such prominent authors as Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Barry Malzberg and a host of others take their pens and wits to make fun of themselves and the genre they live for.

This collection was originally titled Shaggy B.E.M. Stories and was compiled exclusively for the 1988 Worldcon (Nolacon II). Seventy five percent of the original edition sold out over the Worldcon weekend and the rest disappeared soon after.

Phoenix Pick is proud to republish this classic collection of parodies. All the original stories are included and the only changes that have been made are corrections of typos and other mistakes. One new poem ("There's a Bimbo on the Cover" by Michael F. Flynn) has been added to the book.
