The first story in this anthology is my latest attempt at humor. Whether or not it's funny, I guess that's up to you. The next two are a bit more serious and I hope a tiny bit spooky. The fourth is also one of my early attempts at humor, inspired by the early robot stories of Ron Goulart. And then there is the fifth. This one had its inspiration in one of my more favorite X-Files episodes, "The Goldberg Variation." Whether or not you find any of them humorous, I hope they, at least, tweak your imagination. Enjoy!
