'The Unauthorized Anne Rice Companion' is the skeleton key that opens the door to Anne Rice's haunted worlds.In the tradition of 'The Stephen King Companion',this is the first general-interest book,resource guide, and reference work for Rice's millions of fans.Packed with nearly 70 articles,interviews,profiles,and sidebars,this is the book her fans have been waiting for: an authoritative compilation that draws on two decades of Rice in the media.Profusely illustrated with haunting photographs by New Orleans photographer Scott Stewart and new photographs by George Beahm taken especially for this book. Thematically organized in five sections,the book provides a wealth of information about Anne Rice from multiple perspectives:freelance writers,journalists,critics,interviewers,and - from self-published text - Rice herself.The Real World of Anne Rice provides an overview of her career and a chronology,with articles by hometown journalists on her residences in New Orleans,and a rare,in-depth interview with Rice on the bewitching apsects of the city itself. The Unreal World of Anne Rice explores the worlds of publishing and fandom that surround her: her Playboy interview is supplemented by articles on her fan club,a firsthand report of the 1995 Memnoch Ball, articles on collecting Rice's limited editions,and interviews with a Rice illustrator and a bookseller.On Anne Rice explores her writing through the eyes of her chroniclers,critics,and journalists:Katherine Ramsland explains why she wrote a Rice biography; Dr Michael Collings and Bette B. Roberts write about the vampire tradition in literature; and profiles and interviews by Stanley Wiater,Gerri Hirshey,Dale Rice,Merle Ginsberg,and Mikal Gilmore illuminate Rice's literary landscape. aroscuro - Anne Rice and the Cinema explores her endless fascination with the cinema and the film adaptation of Interview with the Vampire.In a lengthy interview conducted by Ramsland,Rice explains the art of horror in film.Also,film critic Roger Ebert reviews Interview with the Vampire,and Rice herself (in self-published texts) comments at length: in a Variety ad,in her Commotion Strange,and in a pamphlet about the movie.A Look at the Books reprints key book and audio reviews of her supernatural novels.The Appendices provide detailed information on her published books,books about her and her work,and various adaptations (film, graphic novel,and audiotape).Also,a detailed resource section is included that explains where the reader can go for more information. Required reading for any Rice fan,it is indispensable,compulsively readable,and the cornerstone for any serious Rice book collector.
