Twenty years since Spider Robinson first revealed the existence of Callahan's Place, the original bar is gone. Mike Callahan is gone, too, but his spirit lives on in the new bar, named Mary's Place for his daughter. On this particular day, nothing seems to be going right for Jake Stonebender, proprietor of Mary's Place. First a huge storm rips the roof off the bar--and moments later, drops another, better roof on it. Then, Mary Callahan and her husband show up, unconscious, literally out of nowhere, and they bring bad news to the barfolk: a nasty three-eyed, three-toed, three-everythinged purple monster is going to descend upon them within mere hours. Through laughter and tears, with puns powerful enough to melt Formica, the most famous bar in all spacetime is going to rock this night. But will the Earth survive?

In a bar unlike any other, bartender Jake Stonebender is a little distracted by his pregnant partner, who will give birth soon--in the face of an impending invasion by a three-eyed, three-legged purple cyborg lizard. The bar's patrons try to devise a plan to meet this threat in such a way that the world survives. Robinson orchestrates the fast-paced wit and general banter, moving easily among his broad cast of eccentric characters, including an artificially intelligent computer. His presentation of this eclectic group of characters will make followers of his work feel welcome and newcomers feel they have found a unique and friendly place to hang out. J.E.M.
