Editorial Reviews

Ben Bova
"Nobody's perfect, but Spider comes pretty damned close."
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 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."

Book was fine until a firmware update rendered the book unreadable. The only solution I was offered was a refund. Ive found this to be a problem in all of the callahan books I have purchaded.

Poor formatting makes the book unreadable on a color nook. The majority of paragraphs do not word wrap, so any text after the first line is lost. Until and unless Barnes and Nobles corrects this, it's a waste of time and money to buy this otherwise exceptional book.

This series is amazing--funny, heartbreaking, warm and genuine--with a dash of sf, too. You'll wish this was a real bar just down the street from your house. Give it a try!
