Sometimes you mess up and summon a demon. Sometimes it takes a book to get out of it… or not.


After the first few pages of this, I thought that I knew where it was going. An unexpecting apprentice accidentally summons a demon… the demon gains the upper hand… the apprentice is trying to find a way out of it. Hence, the book of lessons. However, like all good short stories, there is a twist at the end that made me laugh. It also left me feeling a little perplexed and confused. I think I understand it, but I’m really not 100% sure.

Something about this storyline has lingered and made me wonder / think about what really happened. Was he the demon? Was she? Who needed rescuing from whom?
