I'd be interested in hearing what readers have found funny, and how other writers come up with their humorous premises.

Here's a list of some of the things I tackle in my new collection Pirate Therapy and Other Cures.

Ever wondered what might happen if your therapist was replaced by a pirate? Or how disquieting it would be to receive postcards from your future self? If William Shatner was elected President of the United States, what would his inaugural address sound like? Jesus contends with dinosaurs. Marcel Duchamp describes what happens to a Dadaist who has a monkey's tail grafted to his butt. How did Anne of Green Gables destroy the world? What is Thor's new PR strategy? And so on.

Love to hear yours! (And perhaps we should keep this to the premises that you have already published or read.)

How about; What happens when plans for a microbrewery are accidentally left in a (mostly unread) NASA proposal? Government Beers

Hope you get a chance to read "Government Beers"

That's a pretty good premise!

John -- I've read The Man in the High Castle, so I've seen a version of that, but it wasn't too funny. How'd you make it humorous?
