I ordered Wizards of Odd because I like Fantasy and Science Fiction, and I needed something to read on vacation. The book is divided into three parts: Wizards and Wotsits, Stories of Comic Absurdity; Swords and Sorcery, Tales of Heroic Fantasy; Astonauts and Aliens, Space Opera Yarns. Each part has eight stories by renowned Fantasy and Science Fiction authors, names like Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, C.S. Lewis, and H.G. Wells, as well as many others, tweny-four in all.
I found many of the stories to be amusing and fairly intriguing, covering a range of topics from time travel to aliens to dragons and mythical beasts. My only complaint is that it was not as funny as I had expected. The book claims to be a "delightful collection of comic science fiction and fantasy", but I only found half (if that) of the stories to even make me smile.
It is a good read nonetheless. Entertaining, great for an afternoon by the pool. The stories read quickly, and you can easily finish three or more in a sitting, without realizing you've done so. I would recommend it to lovers of fantasy and science fiction, particularly if you are familiar with the authors featured.
One last note: I really appreciated the short bio on each of the authors at the beginning of their stories. You get to know a bit about them before reading their work, and it makes it all that much more interesting.
