Another Blood Sucking Book?

Ever read one of Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles books? Good chance many of you have since they’re best-sellers. Or if not, you’ve seen the movie, Interview with the Vampire. I’ll have to admit that I’m not one of the millions of fans. I’ve seen a teeny bit of the movie and I bought one book, but couldn’t get into it.

Even so, I thought it interesting that after the entire successful series, Rice, in 2005, gave it up. She announced that she would never again go back to writing about vampires. Then after 30 years away from the church, Rice, a committed atheist, returned to the church and began writing a multi-part series about Jesus Christ’s life.

Now, three years later, she’s announced she’ll write another vampire book. Time says:
While Rice justifies her decision by saying the book will have a definite Christian framework and a focus on the theme of redemption, she admits that the future chronicle will once again involve the character Lestat and a fictional organization known as the Talamaska that is responsible for investigating the supernatural. Much like the author herself, Lestat will be wrestling with the existence of God throughout the story.

If you’re looking forward to another vampire book by Rice, you may have to wait a while.
For a prolific author who writes a book approximately every 15 months, that means it may be at least another three years before we once again see blood dripping off her pages.
