This week I re-released a contemporary gay erotic short story entitled Closing Time.
It was originally published by Aspen Mountain Press (dodged a bullet there, eh?) and appears in my print collection, Working Men.
Mitchell Nolan is a bartender working late on Christmas Eve. As the last patrons leave, he stays behind to clean up. Why hurry home? There’s no one waiting for him, and he knows Santa won’t bother leaving anything special for him this year.
Then he meets Romy Lariner, who ducks inside the bar when his car won’t start. Sparks fly between these two lonely men this Christmas Eve. Maybe Santa has a little something up his sleeve for Mitchell after all …
