Citizen in Space

Citizen in Space, a collection of short stories by Robert Sheckley.

Solid humorous/satirical sf stories from a master of humorous/satirical sf stories.
Saying much about "Hunting Problem" would ruin it, so I won't.
The final story, "Ask a Foolish Question", is clearly a harbinger of Doug Adams' Deep Thought. Great story, even if because it conflicts with my view of reality.
