Humorous storytelling drunk on itself. Sci-fi and humor combine in these connected stories all set in the same saloon filled with regulars, some aliens, and a lot of fun. ( )

Love Robinson's Callahan books. Just off enough to make you think. ( )

Read the first couple of stories, but tjhey were so dated I couldn't be bothered to carry on. ( )

It has been 30 years since I read the original. The Kindle version brought back the same laughter and surprises. There is an affirmation of life and of goodness. I thoroughly enjoyed the stories.

Do be aware that if you hate puns, you will probably not enjoy the book. There are a few Anglo-Saxon vulgarities, but they are appropriate for the situation and probably no worse than one would hear in a PG-13 movie. Young adults would probably enjoy the humor even if they miss some of the more complex layers.

I've already downloaded the sequel: Time Travelers Strictly Cash. ( )

Anything happens at Calahan's Place and probably will. A good collection of short stories by Spider Robinson. ( )
