About the Author

Robert A. Heinlein (1907-1988) is widely recognized as one of the greatest science fiction authors of all time, a status confirmed in 1974 when the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America gave him their first Grand Master Award for lifetime achievement. A four-time Hugo Award winner, Heinlein is best known for works including Starship Troopers, The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, and the sensational bestseller Stranger in a Strange Land.

Spider Robinson, winner of three Hugos and a Nebula, was born in the Bronx and raised on Long Island, and has been a Canadian resident for 30 years. Holder of a bachelor's degree in English from the State University of New York, he worked as a folksinger and journalist before publishing his first story in Analog in 1973. He now lives on an island outside Vancouver, B.C., where he raises and exhibits hopes.

Over ten of Robinson's books are set in Callahan's Place (including Callahan's Crosstime Saloon and Callahan's Key), a fabulous tavern founded by a time traveler, where puns flow as freely as beer, and smell far worse. Robinson has contributed a regular editorial column, Future Tense, to Canada's national newspaper, The Globe & Mail, since 1995. In 2000, he released Belaboring the Obvious, a CD of original music with the legendary Amos Garrett (Midnight at the Oasis) on lead guitar, and in 2001 he was a celebrity judge at the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam.
