I’ve read Barry Ergang’s work for a number of years and I’ve never been disappointed. He takes you into the minds and hearts of his characters and makes you feel what they’re feeling as well as any writer I know. In his short story “Slow and Quiet, Drift Away,” he does exactly that in less than 900 words. How would it feel to lie dying? What would run through your mind? I'd give this more than five stars if I could.

Barry gives readers a unique chance to become the main character in the story. Not many writers can put "you" in the story. Even fewer with the success that Barry does.
