A complete collection of his Galloway Gallegher stories from the Hugo nominated master of science fiction.
In this complete collection, 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 in 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 a drink!
