Summary (From the publisher):

Comedy meets fantasy in this eclectic collection of tales by honored humorists from the printed page and the silver screen. Terry Pratchett attempts to answer the age-old question of why the chicken crossed the road; Ray Bradbury sneaks us a peek behind the scenes of an avant-garde movie studio; Woody Allen introduces us to a failed assassin; and legends such as Peter S. Beagle, Tom Sharpe, Mark Twain, and Orson Welles explore the endless possibilities of the absurd...

Edited by Peter Haining.
