The souls of the dead must cross the Styx, to pass into a Hades-like afterworld. In the first of the twelve stories compiled in A House-Boat on the Styx, the man who ferries the souls across sees a houseboat floating downriver and fears for his livelihood. He is appointed janitor on the boat, where the remaining stories take place between characters from history and mythology.
