The Anne Rice Reader: Writers Explore the Universe of Anne Rice by Katherine Ramsland (Ballantine 1997) (813.54). The focus here is on the technical side of writing. My rating: 6/10, finished 2006.
I was only particularly interested in the essays about the Vampire Chronicles. I found all of them to be quite interesting and insightful. My favorite was "He Must Have Wept When He Made You" as it discussed Jungian archetypes. I've always found Jungian archetypes to be extremely interesting.

I've loved books since I was 3, and the library was a highlight of my childhood. I've been fortunate to be able to find great joy in what others have written and sometimes to give this to readers. I follow my own muse, because it leads me on interesting adventures. If others benefit, so much the better.
