    reprint of the classic 1980s vampire tale

    peers as a genius on dream therapy. He conducts experiments testing whether dream therapy can help people with their psychological issues. So well-liked is he with the students, there is a popular T-shirt ¿SLEEP WITH WEYLAND, HE IS A DREAM¿. However, Weyland¿s brilliance is not with human psyche, but using his scientific tests as a cover that enables him to hide his biological evolutionary condition from the cattle he teaches while also satiating his need for human blood.---------------- However, early stroller Katje witnesses the star professor sucking blood from a student just outside the Cayslin Center for the Study of Man. Not long afterward she shoots Edward, which leaves the wounded professor at the unkind mercy of an abusive avaricious Satanist Reese and his followers. Human teenager Mark risks his life to save the professor who struggles with the lad¿s kindness. As difficult to deal with if not more so is psychiatrist Floria¿s misplaced love for him and the friendship of disturbed Professor Irv, as Weyland finds human passion is part of his soul even if he feels he is Homo Superior.---------------- Though more five interrelated vignettes focused on a relatively short time span of one person rather than a novel, this reprint of the classic 1980s vampire tale remains a strong character driven tale with limited action. The cast is solid as the five prime people (and a few others) in Weyland¿s life force the overall unlikable with his air of superiority lead protagonist by their negative or positive relationships to reconsider how complex humans are and how he treats them. The action is limited as this is more a character study of how the next evolutionary line interacts with the current (sort of the first Cro Magnan amongst the Neanderthals). Readers will enjoy Suzy McKee Charnas¿ interesting scientific vampiric mythos (no supernatural).--------------- Harriet Klausner

    A vampire walks among us

    The Vampire Tapestry is the story of dream researcher and vampire Dr. Edward Weyland. This is a very unique vampire story. Unlike the horror stories we are use to, here we have a complicated creature without fangs or any of the other things we expect; but he still needs blood. The main character, the vampire, gets kidnapped and after escaping begins talking with a psychologist. He is not the stereotyped vampire at all and the author does not make him sad, pitiful, or sexual in any way. A very good read and something different. This type of vampire could actually exist...
