Anne Rice has defined vampire fiction for a generation, but it all began with her debut novel where Louis de Pointe du Lac tells the story of his 200 year life to a mortal interviewer with a tape recorder. In episode 163, Luke & James visit the dark and fantastic world of a New Orleans long past.

Topics: Anne Rice’s legacy in genre fiction, the potential value of her style of prose, the vampire sex question, a tragic personal connection between the author and Claudia, what makes evil characters appealing, a theory on why editors may have initially passed on the eventual bestseller, and some solid writing advice.

Join next week when they discuss the film adaptation starring Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise!
