The Rabbi and the Vampire (A Short Story) [NOOK Book]

Overview

Although Vampires are found in many cultures, this is a short story about the Jewish origins of the Vampire legend as found in the Torah and Talmud which has entered into literature. The information in this regard is factual, as was the treatment of the Jews I describe in the late Middle Ages, just before the advent of the European Enlightenment in the early 1800's.

Meet the Author

Darren Stein is an Australian artist and poet. Born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1973, Stein worked in the townships and squatter camps around Johannesburg and Soweto during the transition to democracy in the early 1990’s. His fields included adult literacy, voter education, election monitoring, and subsequently Police reform which worked towards building reconciliation between local community groups and the Post-Apartheid police forces. After suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder caused by his exposure to the violence of the period, he immigrated to Sydney, Australia. His poems have appeared in various anthologies, including Over the Rainbow (1996), The Liquid Mirror (1998), An Endless Place (1999), and Storage Space: A collection of contemporary poetry (2008).

    What a fresh take on the story of Abraham Stoker. I enjoyed the way the author weaved the story to make it mor authenttic, even to keeping the name of G-d holy.

    I hope to see more work by this author.
