If You Like Spider Robinson Books, You’ll Love…

The first book in the Callahan series is Callahan’s Crosstime Saloon. It tells us the story of Callahan’s Place, a neighborhood tavern for the entire universe and all of time and space. The bar is frequented by time travelers, telepaths, aliens and much more. The book centers on tales told at the tavern and the people that are doing what they can to save the world, one customer at a time. A funny story in the vein of Douglas Adams.

Very Bad Deaths is the first book in the Russell Walker series. Walker has lost his wife and wants nothing more than to head into the woods and forget about the world. The world has other ideas though. Walker tries to escape, but finds himself caught up in the search for an awful serial killer who is building quite a resume. Walker is the only person who can communicate with a telepath named Smelly who may have the key to finding the killer and only Walker can get this information to people who need it.
