Wiki

This contemporary tale manages to do so much. It gives us the feeling of a long lasting (albeit strange) love relationship, a young couple whose first kiss was shared New Year's eve 1904. It gives us an interesting portrait of overly self-protective and over busied Los Angelenos and of the city itself. And, without giving away any spoilers, an inventive playfully serious excursion into the psyche of Death. It does all this while being unpretentiously literate.

Excellent short story from Phil Frey. I found the tale to be very enjoyable, well-written and with some excellent characterization. The three pseudo-antagonists in the tale are handled quite well. Everyone has a personality that is believable. This one is definitely worth a read!

A thoroughly enjoyable short story, Phillip Frey’s Hym and Hur has pleasingly thought-provoking humor, combining a delightful premise with thoroughly enjoyable execution. The author’s light touch with matters of heaven and hell blends perfectly with the innocent mood of his oddly ancient protagonists, Hym and Hur, as they plan their next curious prank.   The human protagonists are pleasing too as their perils stretch before them, but the reader’s eyes are kept firmly …
