She's No Shimmer

Short Story by David H. Hendrickson

$0.99 available in bundle


Shimmer, the legendary female impersonator, haunts the Key West cabaret she made famous and the pale imitators who try to fill her stilettos. They inevitably fail, until a new contender to her throne arrives and insists on a very different Barbara impersonation. Not Streisand, but Bush. Barbara Bleeping Bush! 

“She’s No Shimmer” first appeared in Fiction River: Haunted.

“David H. Hendrickson is one of my favorite writers.”

His short fiction has appeared in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine and numerous anthologies, including multiple issues of Fiction Fiver and Fiction River Presents.
