Callahan's Legacy

(1995)
(The seventh book in the Callahan series)
A novel by

 
 
Once again the Callahan regulars and bartender Jake Stonebender must save the world, this time from the designs of a nasty alien via group telepathy. Full of wit, riotously funny puns and a treasure trove of wisdom, this novel gives the full flavor of Spider Robinson's genius.

"Subversive, dangerous, iconoclastic, cantankerous. Puns, palindromes, puzzlers, posers, pranks, and poetry. A three ring circus of ideas - I loved it!"
- John Varley

"A riot for Callahan's addicts."
- Kirkus Reviews

"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 is the hottest writer to hit science fiction since Harlan Ellison, and he can match the master's frenetic energy and emotional intensity, arm-break for gut-wrench."
- The Los Angeles Times

"Nobody's perfect, but Spider comes pretty damned close."
- Ben Bova

"Spider Robinson is the Tom Robbins of the 21st century."
- John Varley

Spider Robinson is a master storyteller... "
- Allen Steele

[Spider Robinson] "embodies the best of Sturgeon, Heinlein, and Asimov."
- David Gerrold
