The Sixth Door – First Chapter

Posted in News with tags on January 21, 2014 by webmasternemi

Pike shared this preview of the first chapter for The Sixth Door, an upcoming ADULT novel that may also make it’s way to TV.

 

THE SIXTH DOOR

CHAPTER ONE

You might have seen me, I get around. The name of the city does not matter to me. When I arrive in a town, I usually go for a long walk, night or day, and pretty soon I’m talking to someone. Whoever it is, they always have the same problems. No money, no sex, and never enough love. I try to help them, not just with talk, but with a few tricks I’ve learned over the years. And more often than not I am able to satisfy their needs. But they seldom thank me afterwards, not when our business is finished. That doesn’t bother me, though. I just pack up my things, buy a bus ticket, and move on. It is all the same to me. Continue reading

Strange Girl

Posted in News with tags , , , on December 26, 2013 by webmasternemi

Pike shared the first chapter of a new work through social media this holiday season. The book is called “Strange Girl”.

CHAPTER ONE

I still get asked what Aja was like, where she came from, what it was like to be her friend, to actually date her, whether the stories about her were true, and who — or what — I really thought she was. 
The last question usually makes me smile, a little, probably because I understand it’s hard to talk about her without sounding like a nut. But that’s what I try to tell people who want to know about her. She was a mystery, a genuine enigma, in a world that seldom believes in such things, and now that she’s gone, I think that’s what she’ll always be.
At least to those who loved her.

Pike Talk: Hollywod, The Listeners & The Cold One

Posted in News with tags on August 15, 2013 by webmasternemi

 

PIKE here: Sorry I haven’t checked in lately. After finishing the first draft of Witch World II, I got caught up in family issues in L.A. that I didn’t expect. I left Santa Barbara for a few days and only just returned. For that reason, I have yet to send out the last eight copies of Witch World that I’ve signed. For those of you who have all but given up hope, they are coming.
It’s exciting to see Spooksville actually being shot. Hollywood truly is a brutal town. Literally dozens of times I’ve had projects all set to go into production but something would always happen. It’s strange to think back to when I first published Remember Me. The whole town wanted to make a movie of the book. Then it came out that the Demi Moore film “Ghost” was in pre-production. Over the years various agents have told me if Remember Me had happened at the start, Hollywood would have made two dozen films of my books by now.
Yet, ironically, I’m not sure if it was bad luck. I do believe things happen for a reason. Fall Into Darkness was a success as a Movie of the Week, and the network wanted to do Chain Letter next, followed by several other titles. But when I saw how terrible Fall Into Darkness was, I went through a decade where I simply couldn’t sign away any rights to my books.
Maybe I overreacted, I don’t know.

Pike Talk: Recovery

Posted in News with tags on November 25, 2012 by webmasternemi

PIKE here. Sorry I haven’t written in over a week. I’ve run into a problem. Normally I’d talk to a handful of people about it, but since I’ve begun to chat with my fans on Facebook — YOU guys — I feel a responsibility to explain what’s happening in my life. Continue reading

Witch World (Review) (No Spoilers)

Posted in News with tags , , , , on October 17, 2012 by webmasternemi

It’s always a challenge to present an unbiased opinion when writing a review of a Christopher Pike novel on a website called http://www.christopherpikefanclub.com. As a fan of everything the author has ever written, we all know it’s very unlikely that I left Witch World disappointed. Image

Witch World is not a radically new style of book for Mr.Pike, particularly for his current generation of books. The Alosha trilogy, Secret Of Ka, and Thirst #3+4 all had similarly large and complex storylines. Each of those books created evil corporations and sophisticated parallel universes. Witch World is no different, though it’s filled with so many twists and turns you might think you’re reading the next chapter in the Thirst series.

Indeed, Jessie may be Pike’s most intriguing character since Sita. Her voice is strong, her mind is complicated.

The action starts within the first few chapters and keeps going until the very last page and the writing style is typical Pike. What’s particularly remarkable with Jessie in Witch World is that she is not as clean-cut as Ali in Alosha or Sara in Ka. Things get messy (in a good way) with unexpected deaths, dirty talk between lovers, and unexpected story turns you won’t find in other books. This is Christopher Pike returning to form, no longer worried about pandering to a new audience.

While I see what’s attractive about creating a series of books, or a trilogy, on a personal level I have to admit that I’m looking forward to a stand-alone book sometime soon. “The Sixth Door” is rumored to be published shortly, and I’m anxious for news on that project. With no end in sight for Alosha (we’ll get it when the movie’s made, how many years away that is) and an open-ending to The Secret Of Ka (with no sequel in the works), it’s hard to start a new Christopher Pike franchise without worrying about closure.

Luckily, Witch World 2 is already being written and a new (possibly final) Thirst book is on the way.

Witch World is a book that every Pike fan will devour. It’s dark, twisted candy. With elements of his previous few releases as well as shades of Whisper Of Death, this is both classic and modern Pike (most fans know what I mean when I distinguish between the two). For new readers, they may be surprised by the edginess and challenged by the complex, fast-moving plot – both are unlike anything out there.

Have you pre-ordered your copy of Witch World yet? By ordering it on amazon – you will get it delivered the moment it comes out (possibly even before the official release date). Just click here.
