With Friends Like These…by Alan Dean Foster

 This is a book of short stories.  It is refreshing and shows that even in 1977 Foster was a master of his craft.

There was a lot of tongue and cheek in this book.   Because of the short stories there were no consistent protagonists.   The stories entertained without being taxing.   It is not a book for pondering as much as it is a book for entertainment.

One thing Foster does consistently is show the potential inherent in his characters and hopefully in mankind.

I recommend the book.
