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!

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.

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.

I’ve heard about this book for years and have always been interesting in seeing what all the fuss was about. It’s a set of short stories that each occurs within a very special bar. It’s a friendly place—more interesting in Cheers but I think trying to be just as funny with a lot of bad puns and tall tales. The motif of the stories tends to be that people with unusual problems (usually science fiction in flavor—time travel, telepathy, etc.) stumble into the bar at their whit’s end and get a little human comfort and hope. It’s a nice collection.
