Reactions and Reviews
The Face on the Barroom Floor by Ruth Berman end Eleanor Arnason is another one I had read. I can't really believe that Kirk would ever get involved in a barroom brawl... but again, I like it. 
Another story was Face on the Barroom Floor] which centered around some misadventures of James T. Kirk. Of course, there's a lot of plot manipulation in it. For instance, it seems rather strange that no one would comment on the outlandish samuria [sic] outfit that Kirk wore during the story. It requires quite a stretch of the imagination to believe this and other "little coincidences" which occur throughout the story. However, I suppose if O. Henry can do it, so can Elwanor Amoson [sic] and Ruth Bergman [sic]. The introduction is by George Takei. 
The Face on the Bar-Room Floor by Eleanor Arnason and Ruth Berman and introduced by George Takei has Kirk caught in a bar-room brawl while on shore leave, thrown into jail and his hilarious attempt to a) get out and b) prove he is who he says he is... 
A so-so story, about what goes on during shore leave… not very memorable.
