Callahan's Crosstime Saloon - STALLED BOOKRAY
3 journalers for this copy...
This is actually a 1987 Berkeley paperback printing, with the original (and much better -- in my opinion) cover art from the 1977 Ace edition, rather than the cover shown attached to this BC journal.
Description from back cover:
"You got troubles? Toe up to the line, and make a toast (the toast is mandatory). Then smash your glass in the big fireplace. It only costs half a buck at Callahan's Place, and it sure can feel good. If you have a mind to talk about it, don't be shy. The regulars at Callahan's have heard it all. Time-travelers, aliens, telepaths, and a host of others have found their way here, and learned that there is only one house rule: Anything can happen at Callahan's Crosstime Saloon.
Here's the list so far, in the order we'll follow:
fruitbat from Oregon
ladyofunicorns from New Mexico <--Stalled out since Feb 2004 with this participant
drumorgan from California
PygmyMoose from Nebraska
CGCurrie from Virginia
arugh48187 from Minnesota
snowmyst from West Virginia

One of five "Callahan's" books being mailed today as part of a "group" BookRay. Heading to Oregon. Enjoy!
on its way with the others to LadyOfUnicorns via media mail
If you are LadyofUnicorns, please be fair to the other BookRay members who have now been waiting for over a year for you to pass the books on to them.
If you are not LadyofUnicorns, but would like to see these books freed to continue on their journey, I encourage you to PM that user to let your wishes be known, politely but firmly.
Unfortunately, despite being sent e-mails in Summer 2004, Fall 2004 and now in February 2005, LadyofUnicorns has refused to respond to any and all inquiries regarding these books. I consider her to be a risk to all future BookRay and BookRing memberships, and warn anyone against including LadyofUnicorns in future endeavors unless s/he can get their act together. There are several other books that are parts of other BookCrossers' BookRays or BookRings which are also stalled out on this BookCrosser's shelf!
In the meantime, I'm going to do what I can to come up with additional copies of all five books in the Callahan's BookRay, to see if we can't continue to share the reading pleasure. I'll notify the next person in line if/when I'm successful.
