J.C. on the Dude Ranch
Genre Science Fiction / Western / Erotic
Type Short story
Series
-
Originally submitted to Playboy, but the editor turned it down "...because of a fear that PJF would be accused of plagiarizing a novel that he has never read, as it had not been released at the time he submitted the story..." (Farmerage #2, 1978).
The title of the story has been based on an idea by Robert Bloch, a good friend of the Farmers. Robert has been written into the story as Bob Blotch.
DESCRIPTION:
This is a somewhat odd, but funny story about two strangers visiting a small town in Arizona. They go to a nearby ranch, but not for a vacation, as the title suggests. The situation is something like Sodom and Gomorrah meets Armageddon...
