Overview

Opening night at Mary’s Place draws the refugees from the now-defunct Callahan’s Bar; and bartender Jake Stonebender quickly learns that Mary’s Place attracts as many bizarre events and persons – including a drunken leprechaun – as its beloved predecessor. The story, says Booklist, “hangs together on the strength of Jake's appealing voice and the bar scene, which is hip and witty.”

Written by Hugo and Nebula-Award winning author Spider Robinson.

Spider Robinson is a master storyteller…"
- Allen Steele

[Spider Robinson] "embodies the best of Sturgeon, Heinlein, and Asimov."
- David Gerrold

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"Robinson's creative imagination is admirable."
John Varley
"Spider Robinson is the Tom Robbins of the 21st century."
Ben Bova
“Nobody’s perfect, but Spider comes pretty damned close.”
The Los Angeles Times
Spider Robinson is the hottest writer to hit science fiction since Harlan Ellison, and he can match the master’s frenetic energy and emotional intensity, arm-break for gut-wrench.”
The Vancouver Sun
"If one were given the task of creating Spider Robinson from scratch, the best way to do it would be to snatch James Joyce from history, force-feed him Marx Brothers films and good jazz for the better part of a decade, then turn him loose on a world badly in need of a look at itself."

The Callahan Touch filled in the missing parts of my collection of Callahan books. Basically it covers the events occurring in Mary's Place. It is well worth the money.
