Christopher Pike (author)

Christopher Pike is the pseudonym of American author Kevin Christopher McFadden[1] (born November 12, 1954). He is a bestselling author of young adult and children's fiction, but whose expertise is in the thriller genre.[2] The pseudonym Christopher Pike is allegedly a reference to the captain of the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) in the Star Trek: The Original Series pilot.[3] Kevin McFadden was born in New York in 1954, but grew up in California where he currently resides in Santa Barbara.[4] As a college dropout, Pike turned to house painting and programmed computers prior to becoming a bestselling author.[5] Pike was unsuccessful as a budding science fiction and adult mystery author, until his work was discovered by an editor who suggested he try writing a teen thriller. This suggestion resulted in Slumber Party (1985), a book about a group of teenagers who run into bizarre and violent events during a ski weekend. Well-known works include The Last Vampire series, the Final Friends and Remember Me trilogies, Witch, Whisper of Death, the Alosha series and Fall into Darkness. According to Amazon.com, Pike currently has four titles available on Audiobook cassette/CD: Fall Into Darkness, Witch, Bury Me Deep and Falling.[6] On November 25, 1996, Fall Into Darkness was released as a television movie directed by Mark Sobel, starring Tatyana Ali and Jonathan Brandis. This movie was produced by Christopher Pike Productions.[7] The movie is no longer in print, however, some DVDs can still be found online.[8] Also in 1996, fans created a website based on Pike's novel The Midnight Club to discuss the author and share their stories.[9] This site no longer exists. McFadden is also the author of the popular children's series Spooksville and the adult novels: Sati, The Season of Passage, The Listeners, The Cold One, The Blind Mirror and Falling. McFadden is an extremely private person; the little known about him is collected from his books and very rare interviews.[10] In the "About the Author" section of several of his books, McFadden lists his interests as astronomy, meditation, reading, running, surfing and making sure his books are prominently displayed in his local bookshop. He acknowledges Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, Agatha Christie, Carl Sagan and Stephen King as his influences.[11] Although his books are known as thrillers, they are often more focused on aspects of science fiction, spirituality, and whodunit. References to Egyptian, Greek and Hindu mythology are also common. According to the Simon & Schuster author page, The Last Vampire (Thirst) series and the Alosha series are slated to be released as feature films.[12] As of September 2010, FilmNation has acquired the screen rights to The Last Vampire series.[13] Because Pike didn't have time to write the sequel to The Cold One,[14] tentatively titled Seedling, and the fact that the next book in the Alosha series, Nemi, has yet to be written, fans have begun an online petition for the completion of Nemi at ipetition.com. Christopher Pike only wrote one book in this forty-seven book series. Other writers of this series include Caroline B. Cooney and Diane Hoh.[15]
