This book really got up my nose.Everyone was so nice. The problems were all so easily solved. I just wanted one bitter, old and unsaveable alchy in the corner pished, sleazing over women, and trying to stick the head on Doc Webster. The puns were rubbish as well.

Not if it was full of the same bunch of depressing prats that Callahan's was full of we wouldn't.

Wouldn't we all like to have a local like Callahan's (especially when it serves Bushmills)?

If you like puns, this is the book for you.

A fine book that is fairly unique in its approach to science fiction, some of the ideas are a little contrived but the easy going language and style more than make up for this.

I love this book and frequently go back to callahan's to meet up with old friends. Though the format does get samey, it is quite nice to find a novel with this level of optimism.

Quite an interesting idea that doesn't reach it full potential due to excessive tweeness and repetition throughout the stories. I'd pick it up again only to re-read "The Time Traveller" which is by far the best of the stories.
