Dreamspinner Press has a page up for Highway Man, a short story in their Nap Sized Dreams category. It will be available for purchase on May 15. Some of you may remember an earlier post about this one, inspired by a comment Eyre made on her site, A Reader's Journey, wishing she could write a story for The Magnetic Fields rendition of "Papa Was a Rodeo."
Here's the blurb:
If their gravelly-voiced front man died in the wreck that claimed the rest of Trickster, what's he doing filling in for a tribute band's absent guitarist? All Killian Desmond wants is to forget that tragic accident, make a few bucks off rodeo wins and pick-up gigs, and occasionally find a willing one-night stand. A listening ear in the form of a fellow musician he dubs Tex reopens old wounds. Tex knows the songs and hears the pain—Killy may have found more than he was looking for.
