Publisher's Summary

It's more than 20 years since Spider Robinson revealed the existence of Callahan's Crosstime Saloon, and the original bar is gone. Mike Callahan is gone, too, but his spirit lives on in the new bar, named Mary's Place for his daughter. On this particular day, nothing seems to be going right for Jake Stonebender, proprietor of Mary's Place. First a huge storm rips the roof off the bar, and moments later, drops another, better roof on it. Then, Mary Callahan and her husband show up, unconscious, literally out of nowhere, and they bring bad news to the barfolk: a nasty three-eyed, three-toed, three-everythinged purple monster is going to descend upon them within mere hours. Through laughter and tears, with puns powerful enough to melt Formica, the most famous bar in all spacetime is going to rock this night. But will the Earth survive?

Critic Reviews



Audie Award Finalist, Science Fiction, 2007
"What Robinson's many fans look for above all is humor, wordplay, and a complicated web of allusions to favorite rock lyrics, classic SF stories and previous Callahan tales. They get plenty of each here and should feel right at home, again." (Publishers Weekly)

Wit and wisdom of alcholics

If you spend your free time at bars, and think that there is nothing greater than the wit and wisdom of a bunch of disfunctional drunks, then this is the book for you.

Not as good as his first three books.

This latest book was not on a par with his previous work. Pretty much everything about the book seemed contrived rather than flowing naturally. It was also predictable. Which wouldn't bother me normally but the book wasn't good enough to be predictable and enjoyable. A dissapointment and the last one of his I'll try for a while.
