Overview

This short story first appeared in the January, 1999 issue of Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine. The author says, “In 1997, I attended LoneStarCon 2 in San Antonio, and happened to see a panel presentation called “Should I Sleep with the Editor?” The panelists were leading SF editors, including Gardner Dozois of Asimov’s Science Fiction. To the amusement of the audience, they read actual cover letters they had received from unpublished authors who were desperate to break into print. These aspiring authors wheedled, cajoled, and argued in an attempt to reach through the page and twist the editor’s arm. See me, read me, buy me. And then I saw it, how to finish my own story. When I returned home I rewrote ‘Yurek Rutz,’ casting it as a cover letter to Gardner Dozois. I learned later that he detests epistolary stories, but he bought it anyway, and in doing so helped insure that I’ll never want for anything again.”

Editorial Reviews

Fred Cleaver
"Yurek Rutz, Yurek Rutz, Yurek Rutz" is an outright funny story of a quest for immortality through a catchy jingle and a hole in the Alaskan permafrost. It's also a tale of the quirky inhabitants of the author's home in Fairbanks. —Denver Post
Graeme Flory
“The tale that really stood out for me though was ‘Yurek Rutz, Yurek Rutz, Yurek Rutz’, a haunting yet compelling (and strangely logical) tale of Alzheimer’s, cryonic storage and the protecting of Yurek Rutz’s immortal soul. Having finished the tale of Yurek Rutz I was left in awe of how well everything fitted together and I found myself hoping that it all turned out well for Yurek Rutz.
