Riassunto: A one-of-a-kind bar with a colorful batch of regulars who tell stories, exchange terrible puns, and meet strangers?human and alien alike?who are drawn to this 'saloon' where "shared pain is lessened, shared joy is increased."
"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 Vancouver Sun
Spider Robinson, winner of three Hugos and a Nebula, was born in the Bronx and raised on Long Island, and has been a Canadian resident for 30 years. Holder of a bachelor's degree in English from the State University of New York, he worked as a folksinger and journalist before publishing his first story in Analog in 1973. He now lives with his wife Jeanne Robinson (co-author of the Hugo- and Nebula-winning Stardance trilogy) on an island outside Vancouver, B.C., where they raise and exhibit hopes.
Eleven of his 31 books are set in Callahan's Place, a fabulous tavern founded by a time traveler, where puns flow as freely as beer, and smell far worse. The most recent is Callahan's Con [Tor July 2003]. He has contributed a regular editorial column, "Future Tense," to Canada's national newspaper, The Globe & Mail, since 1995. In 2000, he released Belaboring the Obvious , a CD of original music with the legendary Amos Garrett ("Midnight at the Oasis") on lead guitar, and in 2001 he was a celebrity judge at the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam.

Descrizione libro Ridley Enslow, 1978. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Very Good. Condizione sovraccoperta: Fair. First Edition. The jacket is shelf-rubbed and worn, with multiple creases, chips and tears along the top and bottom edges. There are two small chips out of the bottom back corner, and at the head of the spine, which cuts off most of the author's name. The largest chip is from the front cover of the jacket, cutting off the author's name entirely. As a result of this chip, the front board of the book has been tanned and marked in the area where the cover is missing. Aside from this, the book itself is just a tad shelf-rubbed. Internally, the front end page features a blue ink marking, as well as a charity shop plate, the rest of the pages within are clean, crisp and complete. Strongly bound and preserved in cellophane.
