My Favorite Shorts by Spider Robinson

An outstanding collection of short works -- and four songs -- by one of science fiction's most beloved storytellers. Whether it's a visit from what may be one's future self, a bar where a married couple find both pain and hope, a mighty Warlock who meets his match, John Lennon brought back from the dead, an alien in human disguise, or the nefarious intentions of a gorgeous woman, Spider's humor, surprises and deep humanity shine through.  New Introduction by the author, as well as a reminiscence about his wife Jeanne and meeting with Robert and Ginny Heinlein.
