    Comedy

    This short story is enjoyable levity for aficionados of the Uplift novels. If you liked the goofy humor, you will love the novel-length Redshirts by Scalzi.

    Buy This Story and the Joke's on You

    The Uplift series is one of my favorites in the genre. My best in the series (Startide Rising), I've read at least a dozen times. And Brin's brilliant novels Practice Effect and Earth held such intriguing ideas. Even The Postman is entertaining. But this short story -- mislabeled as humorous -- is simply terrible. Read this and you might never read Brin again.
