"I wrote a post on my blog to that effect," I replied.
"Same thing," he said. "You think psychic vampirism is a joke?"
" I don't know if it's a joke, but it's certainly not real." His intense gaze continued to bother me. more.........
The rest of the story is contained in my anthology, Dark Journeys available on Amazon Kindle.
