This is the first collection of hilarious fiction from, The Sanely Funny Humor Magazine. The site attracts thousands of visitors a week who are seeking a respite from the craziness of the contemporary world and find it in the consistently intelligent humor that is the specialty of the online magazine. The Collected Humorous Fiction consists of satires and outright spoofs on contemporary topics, either in the news or more broadly relevant. All were featured in the Spoof section of the magazine.

This volume of fiction forms a companion volume to the Collected Humorous Articles, which are a steadily entertaining mix of non-fiction, part fiction, or complete fiction, grouped under headings from the magazine, such as Sanely Funny Cover Story, Dreadline, Shreditorial, Foreign Fun, Washington Spin Din, Culture & Comedy, Tech Humor, Clever Monkey, and more. was created by and is entirely written by Tom Attea, a humorist and playwright who has had six shows produced Off-Broadway. Critics have called his comedy writing for the theater "delightfully funny," "witty," with "great humor and ebullience" and "good, genuine laughs." He also co-wrote the first comedy feature that Showtime produced and has written other comedy for television. He was in The Playwrights Unit of The Actors Studio for ten years and was awarded a grant as a playwright by Theater For The New City in New York. While his principal medium is words, he plays the piano and studied composition and orchestration at The Julliard School. He has extensive experience working with news and entertainment media. He wrote the recent advertising campaign for The New York Sun, New York's new broadsheet newspaper, "Illuminate Your World," the classic campaign for Time Magazine, "There's never been a greater need for understanding," and the long-running theme for The Village Voice, "In this city, you need a Voice." In broadcast media, he wrote the advertising that successfully introduced Lifetime television, "There's nothing like a woman's Lifetime," and oversaw all of the advertising and program publicity for WABC TV and WABC Radio in New York.
