Hym and Hur – Philip Frey – Review

Hym and HurIf you could play a practical joke on the human race or do a good deed for them, which would you choose?  Join Hym and Hur as they embark on a journey to do a little of both.  First they must get Death to agree with them and set their plan in motion.

Making a deal with Death can be tricky at best.  Death has tricked the tricksters with a contract that has consequences for the whole world.  Hym and Hur must figure out a way to get out of the contract while reversing some of the damage they have caused with their prank.

This was a really cute short story. As with most short stories, it was over too soon.  I would have liked a little more back-story.  What exactly are Hym and Hur?  Where did they come from?

The characters are fun.  Hym and Hur are likeable, with an element of mischief. Even Death is likeable and had me laughing.

Hym and Hur is a cute short story, (about 8,000 words) that would be great for the person looking for a quick read. It won’t change your life, but it is perfect for a little escape from reality.  I ran a warm bath and had a nice soak while I read this story.
