I wasn’t feeling the very best today so when I got the chance to read a new story by Rhys Hughes who I’ve always adored I hope to say at last carpe diem.
I closed my ears to the outside noises and then I began the reading… The Messiah of the Mannequins is another wild, non-sense, fantastic, exhilarating tale from Rhys Hughes, a man capable of never fails to fascinate me. The story maybe isn’t real, but it sure is powerful…
The Messiah of the Mannequins is a story that people with an imagination will enjoy, but if you lost your capacity of dreaming you still can give it a try.
