I read this originally right after reading the short story "Buffalo Dogs," but I felt I understood a little bit more this time now that I'd read Buffalito Bundle, a collection of Amazing Conroy stories.

Barry's Tale follows Conroy as he attends a prestigious barbecue festival on a closed planet in the hopes of getting a marketing endorsement. Nothing goes as planned of course, especially when there's a special little girl that Conroy might be able to help. I really enjoyed this novella--it's well

The Amazing Conroy series is genuinely a delightful series. It can be considered quite lighthearted as it follows the life of our favorite hypnotist.
