BELLY UP TO THE BAR FOR SCIENCE FICTION THRILLS-‘TALES OF THE INTERSTELLAR BARTENDERS GUILD’ DEBUTS!
The Future. Humanity has spread through the galaxy, along with innumerable other races and creatures. In the thousands of solar systems that men have reached you’ll find monarchies, dictatorships, anarchies, utopia, dystopia, and utter chaos. But one slightly stumbling thread weaves through every world, every society– The Interstellar Bartenders Guild.As man took the leap out it seems that bartenders had something to do with it. These are stories of how they provided the shove for said leap. There are fistfights, love and lust, exotic bars, drunks, and a Guild Master with a mystery. Most of all you’ll find people- good, bad, lost, found, and somewhere in the middle. Mankind has grasped the stars but the problems that have been around since a thousand year ago are still with them a thousand years from now. Good thing they have the Bartenders of the Guild to help them solve their problems. Sometimes you run into people who change your life for the best even while at their worst, regardless of what star you are circling. Those people are called Bartenders.TALES OF THE INTERSTELLAR BARTENDERS GUILD. From Pro Se Productions.

Bobby's story in this anthology collection is called Ol' Jake. Ol’ Jake was not unique in the galaxy. Stop by any bar at any of the planets along the galactic arm the locals referred to as the Antares Beltway and you’ll find Ol’ Jake there. He’ll be the one behind the bar, slinging drinks and entertaining the guests. He might not always look the same-- and sometimes he might actually be a she or an it depending on your destination-- but at the core, each and every one of them is ‘Ol Jake. Ol’ Jake was an android barkeep and this is his story. Well, one of them at least.
