Another utopian science fantasy, set in a fictional bar on Long Island, which can only be found if you really *need* to... This one is "Mary's Place" opened by Jake Stonebender after Callahan's is nuked. Most of the regulars are there - Doc Webster, Fast Eddie, Long Drink McGonnigal. Pyotr the vampire, Ralph Von Wau Wau the talking dog, and those who aren't are discusses fondly. Plus there are several new characters - Ernie (aka 'the Lucky Duck'), a sentient Macintosh Computer, and a cluricaune - the cousin to a leprechaun whose sole interest in life is drinking alcohol, and a mysterious bass player... It's well written, and full of the usual humor and puns for which the author is known. Recommended.

I recommend reading the entire series. You'll never meet a more loveable group of characters in more improbable circumstances.

"Opening Night at Mary's Place is the hottest ticket in the galaxy- a brand-new bar with some old familiar faces. Jake's back, along with Doc, Fast Eddie, and the rest of the Callahan's gang. And just when things couldn't get any crazier, guess who shoes up in the Mick of Time to make sure they do..."
