ANTHOLOGIES (misc)

Dangerous Vegetables (edited by Ben Bova) Baen (1998)
A parody of Dangerous Visions?  Ben Bova says the idea for this book came from Keith Laumer.
PUBLISHER'S NOTE: As those who doted on his Retief stories know, Keith Laumer was a man who delighted in his own genuinely twisted sense of humor. Though he left us before he could complete DANGEROUS VEGETABLES (to say nothing of AGAIN, DANGEROUS VEGETABLES or even LAST DANGEROUS VEGETABLES), this is his book, and we hope, wherever he is, he likes how we finished it for him.
