Reprint: Shasta, 1954, 2500 copies with tipped-in "second printing" notice. Of these, 300 had flyleaf signed by both editors to make customers happy. Yes, there is a "signed" edition of this title, but no signed firsts. It was only after this second round of signatures that the first batch came back!

Anthology of humorous SF, much of it wildly funny. The first was supposed to have a special with tipped-in sheets signed by both editors, but the book had to be released before Reynolds got the signed sheets back. They sat in Korshak's storage locker for almost 35 years, finally being purchased by Phantasia Press and tipped into their Brown book And the Gods Laughed - in 1987!
