Review: Mondays with Mephistopheles: 9am––Rhys by Dan O'Brien


Abraham Rogers has an unusual psychotherapy practice: monsters. This first installment is a session with Rhys, the IT vampire who can’t quite connect with the modern world the way he would like.

My Review:

A short story jam-packed with ironic humour. For a couple of sentences I wondered why I'd myself in for another stock-vampire story, then I realised this was something quite different.

If 'Abe' was an interesting character, Rhys was even more so. I actually ended up feeling a little sorry for him. I would have loved to know more about how his case turned out. 

As a short-story this was a perfect read. Now I just need another book full of these 'appointments'.
