Ferryman and Bull By The Horns

I keep rereading "Ferryman," the story that I've sold to publishers twice now. Not to toot my own horn, but I daresay it's a damn good story. Best I've ever written, by a long shot. If you'd like to hear the story read out loud, you can do so here:

By the way, I got my edit requests back from the publisher (I really like saying that) for the queer sci-fi anthology. They asked me to flesh out Bull By The Horns, and I spent some time over the weekend working on that. It was fun to revisit that one - I think I wrote it for the final round of a NYC Midnight flash fiction contest, because it's only 1,000 words. Well, I've got it above 2,000 words now, and I really like directions I was able to take the story without the word count limit.
