The impending eclipse got me thinking about how man has been affected over the years by eclipses. One reportedly stopped a war. I’m sure ancient man thought they were all going to die when the sky went dark in the middle of the day, too.
So, I decided I would write a short story to commemorate the event. And then asked some writer friends if they wanted to play along, too.
Here is what I have so far. Check back today and tomorrow as more writers send me their links.
Total Eclipse by Bart Hopkins
Ripping by Elizabeth Damewood Gaucher
The Things That Make For Peace by Loren Eaton
Our Sun Got Mooned by Patrick Newman
Eclipse By Connie Kinsey
Ironically, I wrote the first draft of my story a week before I read this piece from The Atlantic, but the author seemed to have the same idea I did.
