I stumbled into my local used bookstore yesterday and found this little gem of a book: Tales From the SpacePort Bar, by George H Scithers and Darrell Schweitzer. is a collection of short stories. Each short story involves bar patrons spinning tales. The entire collection has a science fiction theme, as you’d expect based on the title.
The author list is a veritable who’s who of science fiction authors and includes: Larry Niven, Henry Kuttner, Isaac Asimov, Darrell Schweizer, Roger Zelazny, Spider Robinson, Janet O. Jeppson, and others. There are 22 stories in the book. You can pick up a used copy here. Unfortunately, it is not available as an e-book.
I ordered the sequel, Another Round at the Spaceport Bar, this morning–also used and unavailable as an ebook. If you like classic science fiction, I’d recommend picking up both while you can.
