Most of us have encountered frustrating incidents in our lifetimes. For humor columnist Wolfgang Niesielski, one of his most exasperating moments involves an expensive hotel room, a faulty thermostat, and a patronizing front desk clerkonly to be rescued by two gentlemen who, after conferring with each other in hushed tones, change their pleasant demeanor into the serious miens of surgeons before a heart transplant operation. In this compilation of his humor columns, Niesielski provides an amusing take on everyday experiences. See what its like to have an evil cyber presence monopolize your e-mail account, understand the overwhelming differences between first class and tourist class on an airplane, and find out why its important to choose the right gift for a loved oneeven if it is a Salad Shooter or an electric nail-file buffing system. From learning how unforgiving Mother Nature truly is when he forgets how to water the lawn to the moment when he discovers he is a procrastinator in the worst way, Niesielski illustrates what fun life can be when one learns to laugh at himself. The Alien in My E-Mail and Other Stories takes others on a delightful ride through one mans wacky lifeSalad Shooter and all.

Blending a focus on cutting-edge technology with deep emotional impacts, this enticing collection draws its stories from various Year's Best and Reader's Choice lists. The pathos of the human condition is explored in such stories as "My Mother, Dancing," in which seedlings are planted and those responsible must decide if they will play God with them, or let natural selection progress; or in "Nano Comes to Clifford Falls," where nanotechnology brings every wish to everyone—yet dire problems still ensue. The narratives reveal many forms of artificial intelligence including a persecuted slave in "Computer Virus," a controlling force of the universe in "Mirror Image," or even one that's entirely indifferent to humans in "Savior." From the center of the galaxy to the swamps of Earth, all 13 inventive tales offer a trademark mix of hard science fiction interacting with flawed humanity.

Bruno Fensters best friends are invisible chickens. When Bruno awakens nightly to feed the hungry critters and imagines decorating their little heads with colorful hats, his wife, Greta, pulls her pillow over her head, hoping to drown out her fears that Bruno will never amount to anything. As Bruno contemplates how he can fabricate chicken hats from his neighbors newspaper, Greta ponders how much longer she can stand being the sole provider. Bruno thinks one job per family is plenty. But when a prospective job just happens to land in his lap one day, Bruno cannot resist, for he knows his wife will be so proud. Unfortunately, it is not the kind of job that comes with a salary, regular hours, or health insurance benefits. Making a snap decision based on nothing more than cockeyed optimism, Bruno has just transformed his life into a giant mess. In this whimsically humorous fantasy tale, a man with a vivid imagination is about to unwittingly embark on a wild adventure with a prince, several elephants, and a woman who hears voicesand Bruno may just save the world in the process.
