Darren Stein worked in the townships and squatter camps around Johannesburg and Soweto during the dying years of Apartheid. He worked for human rights in the fields of adult literacy, voter education and police reform. His poetry deals with the emotional turmoil of these years; the psychological toll that this took upon him, and his subsequent immigration to Australia.

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.
