My current opinion is that really overtly obvious titles actually appeal to readers a lot. So you could go with something like: * Aliens, magic and planes (oh my!) * My Boyfriends Bizarre Slipstream Tales of Doom * Totally Awesome Space Adventures for the Morally Ambivalent

Uuug, coming up with the title is the worst part, for me anyway.
Things to consider, that may lead to ideas, are: - Words that reflect the story's theme/moral/whatever - Something that gives an idea of the story's mood. ("LORD of the Rings" is a serious epic; "BLAZING Saddles" is a chaotic, wacky, out-of-this-world comedy; "GONE With the Wind" is a tragic romance story; etc.) - A good rule to follow (but you don't have to) is, shorter titles for serious stuff, longer titles for silly or whimsical stuff. ("The Matrix," "Inception," "Casablanca" vs. "Robin Hood: Men in Tights," "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," "The Emperor's New Groove.") - Damn, I had something else witty to say here, and I completely forgot it. How embarrassing.
