Bartender as storyteller is a tried-and-true literary device. Niven offers up a number of short stories and musings about the aliens visiting a tavern in 2030. An interplanetary watering hole provides plenty of material for sci-fi fans; the stories are full of the unique perspectives of these travelers and their accounts of their home planets. Rick Schumann is characterized as the classic bartender by narrator Tom Weiner. He is inventive in his characterizations of the visitors who engage Schumann over the bar. Weiner gives the same attention to short pieces that he does to full stories and provides continuity without being overbearing. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 07]
