this is the 106th in my series of forgotten or seldom read books
The Trouble with Aliens by Christopher Anvil (pseudonym of Harry C. Crosby) © the original story publication dates 1956-1976, 1995, this collection Baen 2008 paperback, science fiction short story collection
This is the 5th of 8 collections of Anvil’s stories publish by Baen: Pandora’s Legions, Interstellar Patrol, Interstellar Patrol II: The Federation of Humanity, The Trouble with Humans, The Trouble With Aliens, War Games and Rx For Chaos. Each collection is edited by Eric Flint.
As I’ve said before, Anvil (pseudonym of Harry C. Crosby) has long been a personal favorite since I began reading his stories in Astounding Science Fiction in the 1950s. Droll, eminently readable, with wonderful touches of humor and frequently thought-provoking, these stories are always entertaining.
Christopher Anvil’s short stories are a delight of which I never tire. I highly recommend you give them a try.
