Two Short Stories Published in a Week

This was a great week. Two of my short stories, both about gay bars, were published one right after the other. The first is called “The Vest” and appears in The Rain, Party, and Disaster Society. The second one is called “Vote” and was inspired by a gay bar I went to years ago where the staff was dressed as Nazi skinheads and wore fake Hitler mustaches (I quickly left). The story appears in Mad Swirl.

About Dennis

Dennis Milam Bensie’s poem “Eight Ball” was published in Greater National Society of Poets, Inc in 1980 when he was a freshman in high school. It was featured thirty years later in his memoir, Shorn: Toys to Men. His short stories, poetry and essays have been featured all over the web and in print. His second book, One Gay American, was chosen as a finalist in both the Next Generation Indie Book Awards and the Indie Excellence Book Awards. In 2015, Bensie successfully funded a Kickstarter campaign to fund a tour of his latest book Flit: A Poetry Mashup of Classic Literature. Flit has been featured in Kolaj Magazine and was a part of Tribe Magazine’s “Anti-Shame Week”. The author has been a presenter at the Saints and Sinners Literary Festival in New Orleans and at Montana’s very first gay pride festival.
