A complete collection of Galloway Gallegher stories from “one of the major names in science fiction” (The New York Times).
In this comprehensive collection, Henry Kuttner is back with Galloway Gallegher, his most beloved character in the stories that helped make him famous. Gallegher is a binge-drinking scientist who’s a genius when drunk and totally clueless sober. Hounded by creditors and government officials, he wakes from each bender to discover a new invention designed to solve all his problems—if only he knew how it worked . . .
Add a vain and uncooperative robot assistant, a heckling grandfather, and a host of uninvited guests—from rabbit-like aliens to time-traveling mafia lawyers to his own future corpse—and Gallegher has more on his hands than even he can handle. Time for another drink!
“[A] pomegranate writer: popping with seeds—full of ideas.” —Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 421
