“Harlot’s Gate” by Glynn Owen Barrass is horrible in a good way. The monster is wonderfully hideous, the protagonist is authentic and I enjoyed the historical details that give this piece a solid sense of time. It was the perfect companion to my Saturday morning coffee.
As I read through the stories in Space and Time, I am grateful for publications like this. Dedicated to literacy, they provide a valuable space for authors to have voice.
The act of writing is a lonely one. Without the opportunity to be published, there can be no readers. Readers are what makes it all worthwhile.
Thank you to Glynn Owen Barrass for a satisfying read. Martin Hanford’s illustrations are perfect for this story. You can read “Harlot’s Gate” by Glynn Owen Barrass in issue #132 of Space and Time, available here. The next issue is due out on March 20.
