About the Author

John Koloski was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, "the most haunted city in America". His inherited psychic sensitivity supplies encounters with ghosts, orbs and shadow-people much like those in his fiction.
John holds degrees in English Literature (BA, Binghamton University) and Creative Writing (MA and MFA, Wilkes University.) He has been an editor and writer for national magazines. His stories and poems have appeared in The Endless Mountains Review, Southern Tier Images, and Midwest Poetry Review. He's presented papers for the National Council of Teachers of English and The John Gardner Society. His scholarly works are included in collections at The University of Rochester. A high school English teacher, John lives with his wife and children in the misty Endless Mountains. EMPYRES: BLOODBLIND, which was an invited public reading at the 2007 AWP Conference in Atlanta, GA, is his first published novel.

EMPYRES: BLOODBIND is about an average guy who gets caught up in the world of "empathic" vampires. Koloski's writing is absolutely gorgeous; along with beautiful visual imagery, he uses smell and touch like an artist uses a paintbrush. He creates a complete world for the reader. My only quibble with this truly original spin on the genre is that the plot seems a little choppy. I had to re-read the first chapter to get a few things straight. However, I will definitely read the sequels because I want to know what happens with 'Shassa. I also loved the use of Ithaca, NY as the setting of most of the story. Anyone can write about NY or LA, but to make this far-flung university town take on a life of it's own is really cool.
