If you're familiar at all with Spider Robinson's work, than you've probably at least seen this one. It's one of the most popular novels from a writer who turns everything he touches into spun gold. All this and it's a fun read too.
There is no other explanation needed for this book other than hillarious- wonderfully witty and entertaining. The characters are anything and everything sci-fi has to offer mixed uptogether for laughs at a bar. A quick and easy fun read.
Mike Callahan operates the type of establishment I would love to call my second home. The regular crowd of patrons, though they seem like your typical pub jockeys, are a tight-knit group of shade-tree philosophers who could put this country's entire social-services organization to shame!
Spider Robinson is a super stoyrteller. I enjoyed this collection very much.
Read the whole Callahan series! This is the first one, and is one of the best sci-fi books out there. Spider Robinson is a master storyteller, with unforgettable characters, intense story lines, lots of puns and humor.
