Today we have a special reading - an entire short story! Shine On Harvest Moon is by the wonderful Jeff Baker - and I'll explain a little about it in the audio:
Shine On Harvest Moon
A Demeter's Bar story
by Jeff Baker
ABOUT THE STORY:
The Demeter’s Bar Stories came about because of two books of barroom tall tales I loved; “Tales From Gavagan’s Bar” by L. Sprague DeCamp and Fletcher Pratt (fantasy stories), and “Tales From The White Hart,” by Arthur C. Clarke (science fiction stories.) I was thinking one day about the fact that while Arthur C. Clarke was gay he didn’t write about a lot of LGBT characters (he didn’t live in that era) and I thought of his “White Hart” stories and realized nobody has done a series of science fictional stories told in a gay bar. So I created Demeter’s Bar, based a little on a couple of places I knew and when (to my utter shock) the first two stories were published, I was off and running and have about seven stories finished so far.
“Shine On Harvest Moon” was written from a picture prompt (of men frolicking in the ocean) on the Friday Flash Fics Facebook page, and appeared on the authorjeffbaker.com website April 20, 2018.
