Thirst Discussed at The Book Junkie!

Technically, this series is being re-released. The 6 original books were published in the 90's. Seeing as vampires and young adult fiction have substantially grown in popularity since then, these books are being put out once more and with fancy new packaging in what I believe will be a trilogy. It's basically what they did with the The Vampire Diaries as well which were also released in the 90's and then re-released after all the Twilight craziness began to take off.

Personally, I'm a sucker ( no pun intended) for vampire books. Even though they're becoming a little redundant, I just can't help myself from being intrigued. Plus I like this whole idea of being the last vampire alive on the planet. That's something I haven't come across yet. So although these are technically already on the market, I'm going to wait for the re-release. I like the idea of them packaging more then one of the original stories together to form one larger book and if you must know, I'm cover vain and I think these are prettier. D:



 
 

Old Christopher Pike Biography

The first essential fact to know about Christopher Pike is that he isn't Christopher Pike, confusing huh? Well, it's actually a pen name taken from a Star Trek captain in the hit 1960s T.V show. His real name is Kevin McFadden, he was born in November 1954 in New York, however these days he lives in the more warmer climate of Santa Barbara, California. He is a very private person, which is to be respected, but sadly it means biographical details are few and far between and there are virtually no publicity pictures of him, so no-one really knows what he looks like . What is known is that he dropped out of university and worked as, amongst other things, a computer programmer before turning to writing full-time. His hobbies include running, astronomy, reading, meditation and surfing, he is currently single. [mod note: this might not be true anymore.]

Q & A with Christopher Pike

“Thirst” has now spent 21 weeks on The New York Times Bestsellers List and is currently sitting at #2. Will there ever be any new The Last Vampire/Thirst stories? Will we ever see Sita again?


I am writing new ones. There is a huge demand for them with the success of “Thirst” on the New York Times Bestsellers list. The new ones are better than the first six.

What does Christopher Pike do for fun? What are your hobbies?


Meditating, walking, hiking. I like movies. The last film I saw was Brothers. I like reading books. I can read for weeks on end. I like Flash Forward, Dexter, True Blood. I love the old Angel series.
