Pagando al Barquero

“Before the terminal boat ride, an old punk rocker travels back in space and time to try to make his life count.”

“Paying the Ferryman” is a story of life, death, the passing of time, and the relativity of human value.

What better subject than death to approach the story of an aging rocker? The many ways with which humanity copes with the notion of its own expiration date are endlessly fascinating, and were a great source of inspiration for this story full of references to after-life lore throughout the ages.
