"The wordplay flies fast and funny as always in a Callahan's romp, and the characters, regular and new, are pretty darn amusing. "
"Blend a madcap plot involving the legendary Fountain of Youth with a zany cast of barflies, garnish with a thin SF twist, and you've got the ingredients for the latest frothy concoction in Hugo-winner Robinson's (Callahan's Key) multivolume tall tale."
- Publishers Weekly
"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…"
