The Space Needler’s Intergalactic Bar Guide, independently published this past summer, isn’t actually a cosmic book of cocktail recipes. Rather, it’s a collection of retro-futurist sci-fi stories detailing astronauts’ (sometimes amorous) encounters with aliens. It was authored by Will Viharo, the writer behind The Thrillville Pulp Fiction Collection Volumes 1–3 and The Vic Valentine Classic Case Files; Scott Fulks, a writer who collaborated with Viharo on the novel It Came from Hangar 18; and Becca Morris, a bartender at the Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge in Alameda; and it features illustrations by Michael Fleming. Fulks and Viharo will be signing copies of the book on December 27 at Forbidden Island (1304 Lincoln Ave., Alameda) — a kitschy bar for a kitschy literary event. The tiki bar even has a “Space Needler” cocktail created and named by Morris, so you can fully live out your intergalactic bar fantasies. — Sarah Burke
