Six Table Stories: Penguin Lightning by James D Fischer

June 9, 2017

This is the first episode of Six Table Stories. “Six Table Stories” are completely mythical, and all involve the people in a completely mythical small community known as Six Table. All the stories were written by James D. Fischer. Some of the stories began as short plays, some have been wrestled into reading shape from short stories. A few have been published, in small anthologies. The players are a gracious volunteer outfit, and the site you’re listening to is put up by the Independence, Kansas Public Library, which continues to be an adventurous outfit whose adventures have been nationally recognized.
