More About the Author

I was born on August 29, 1946, making me one of the famous "baby boomer" generation. I attended Hillside High School in New Jersey, then got my B.S. degree in mathematics at Stevens Institute of Technology. I later obtained by M.S. in mathematics at Fairleigh Dickinson University, where I taught math for two years. I was working on my Ph.D. in Number Theory at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago when I met my (future) wife Phyllis in 1972. We were married in 1973 and I left college to start my own business. I ran three very successful corporations after leaving college and did some writing on the side. When I was 40, I decided I wanted to concentrate more on writing fiction, which I had done in college but had abandoned afterwards. So I started writing novels in 1986. My first book, THE DEVIL'S AUCTION, was published in 1988 and I've written another 16 novels since then. I'm probably best known as the author of a popular trilogy I wrote for White Wolf Games entitled THE MASQUERADE OF THE RED DEATH. These three novels have been published in a number of different languages (including French, German, Spanish and Hungarian) and I've gotten well over 1,000 fan letters about them since they first appeared. My most recent book was DRAGONS, written in collaboration with terrific artist, Tom Wood, and tells the secret story of dragons that existed in the Middle Ages. I also have written 17 non-fiction books, many of them in the pop-science field with my friend, Lois H. Gresh. And, in my spare time, I've edited around 150 anthologies. I like to keep busy!

I bought Vampire Diary on a whim, but it has become my favorite of any vampire book. It really shows you what it must feel like to watch yourself slip into complete madness and become an uncontrollable animal. The writing and pictures are great, and the book itself helps to add to the personna of the story. It makes you feel like you're really reading a diary of someone as they turned to the darkness. I loved it.

I ordered this small gem on a whim. The idea of having to open a book with a key, allowing the reader to interact with the story from the beginning, caught my attention. Okay, I'll buy and try, I thought. Well, when I received it, opened it with one of the two keys that came along, and began reading, I was hooked. The Vampire Diary is exactly that... a diary! The pages are all "handwritten" jottings, notes, screams, and drawings. I could not put it down until I finished it. The length is short, immensely readable, and immensurably mesmerizing. Absolute genius, and 10x worth the price.

Format: Hardcover
OK so this book is basically a diary. Right down to the key that is needed to open the book. It has lovely illustrations by the "autor", a bartender who is slowly sinking into a dark world that very well may take his soul. He works at a goth club and a few of the patrons (and owners) wind up being actual vampires. The only downside is that this is written as a diary in the first person perspective so when the main charecter goes off to what would be the finale, he just leaves and you're left hangin wondering what happened in the end. Definately recommended. I've had this book for at least 10 years now and have yet to read another like it. I don't even know if there was a sequal. If not it definately deserved one.
