Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The primary thought behind the writing of "The Dancing Valkyrie" was to portray vampires as they might be if they were a natural creation not yet proven to exist. When I decided to write a vampire novel, I wanted my vampires to be of flesh and blood, not demons who are actually dead. This thought tied in with a second idea. I did not want to copy what others had written. If of flesh and blood, and fully alive, my vampires would be able to eat and drink, not be bothered by the sun or crucifixes, and would be able to pass as human. And since I had always felt a bit sorry for fictional vampires being unable to enjoy sex, it was natural for my vampires be fully sexual beings. In fact, sex would become the primary bait they would use to get their prey. To make them as human as possible required limiting my vampires from having supernatural abilities. They could have some talents such as rapidly healing from less than fatal injuries and have some psychic abilities such as mind reading and tricking the eye with hypnosis. But they would not be able to become bats or suddenly move from one end of a room to another. The Adirondack location was picked because there is something mysterious about the place. It is an island of wilderness surrounded by a sea of civilization. Hikers and hunters have been lost here without ever being found.

About the Author

Pete Klein was born in Detroit, Mich., in 1942, has been married since 1968, has three grown children and two grandchildren. Klein has been living in the Central Adirondacks of northern New York since 1987 where he has held a number of jobs, most recently as a reporter for a local weekly newspaper. When not writing for the newspaper or working on the next installment of The Dancing Valkyrie, Klein enjoys exploring the Adirondacks on foot and is also working on a guide book that will include many of the hikes he has taken. Klein says his interest in the vampire legend began in grade school after seeing the original Dracula movie on TV and realizing the story took place in the same country his grandparents had immigrated from, Romania. Over the years, and after reading numerous novels and watching as many movies with vampires as the main characters, Klein made several attempts at writing a version of his own. While attempting to write a vampire novel that would be truly original, Klein had other interests that would have an influence on the final result. His life long interest in wild places eventually resulted in a move to the Adirondacks where much of the story of The Dancing Valkyrie takes place. His extensive studies in philosophy and theology formed much of the basis of what vampires might be if they were more than products of the imagination. As the years passed, an idea took shape and certain elements became clear. If there were vampires, they would be creatures created by God with a morality of their own. They would be flesh and blood with a need for blood as real and as demanding as a human has need for food. The result is The Dancing Valkyrie.
