Dr. Death vs the Vampire: 09/17/11

FSF"Dr. Death vs the Vampire" by Aaron Schutz takes place on a bus between Bend, Oregon and the Idaho state line. The narrator claims to be a professional euthanizer and vampire slayer, part of a secret society. His version of things, though, need to be scrutinized as he takes Meclizine and could be dreaming the entire sequence of events.

The story is layered, a combination of flashbacks about his work as a "Dr. Death" and previous vampire slayings he claims to have done, and his current ride where he discovers a vampire on the bus. For something that reads like the stinger before the opening credits to an X Files episode, the story takes too long to accomplish very little.

Two stars.
