An elf, a priest, and a changeling walk into a tavern ... and that's just the start of the novel. So, what does it take to write "funny" in speculative fiction when the characters could just as easily end up as the punchline of a joke? What makes comedy good versus great? What examples of "must read" humorous SF can we use as examples? And how do we know when to dial back the yuks?
