Sentient Chili and Stranger Filk
Chris Weber, author

"Filk" is the term applied to the fan music of science fiction and fantasy. Readers and viewers of the genre will find familiar faces and tales. These lyrics cover topics from movies and television to books and original stories. Much of the collection leans towards humor, while touching other emotional chords as well. The stanzas have the feel of '80s nostalgia but are not exclusively from that era.

The collection is like the proverbial box of chocolates, bite-sized and filled with surprises.

In one sentence: If you like songs about Science, Science Fiction, and Fantasy, then this book is for you.

110 songs in 182 pages. Most of the songs are very good. I consider it a serious competitor to the NESFA songbooks (1970s era) and The Westerfilk Collection (1980s). Although to give those their due, they had songs by many authors, whereas this book is all by one very talented person: Chris Weber.

The first printed editions had a table of contents, but no index and no page numbers. This has been fixed in the later edition, so if you were in doubt because of that problem, now is the time to buy it. (Note: the Kindle and Nook editions did have page numbers, but no index.)
