    John Crawford joined the Florida National Guard to pay for his college tuition; it had seemed a small sacrifice to give up one weekend a month and two weeks a year in exchange for a free education. But one semester short of graduating, and newly married, he was called to active duty, to serve in Kuwait, then on the front lines of the invasion of Iraq, and ultimately in Baghdad. While serving in Iraq, Crawford began writing short nonfiction stories, his account of what he and his fellow soldiers experienced.

    The Kalevala is the signature work of traditional Finnish culture. In story after story, it explores the human and divine world as understood by the traditional runic singers of the north. It sings of how the universe came to be, how the natural world works, how divine and supernatural worlds relate to the world of humankind, how human beings relate to each other, how good and evil and life and death function in the world.

    Il primo di questi tre racconti è lo storico "Il Vampiro" con cui John William Polidori (1795-1821) inaugurò le vicende letterarie di questa creatura dell’orrore. Lo scrittore era anche il segretario e medico personale del poeta George Byron, a cui si fa più volte riferimento, nel racconto, alttribuendone a lui la paternità, secondo una non insolita finzione letteraria.
