Well as most of you know Anne Rice has written several books even some under pen names. But let's start with the


The Vampire Chronicles:


Interview With The Vampire(1976)-The story of Louis De Pointe Du Lac a 200 year old vampire as told to a young reporter in a room in San Francisco. Anne's most famous character, Lestat first appears in this novel, however, he didn't tell this story. The 1994 Geffen Pictures Motion Picture Interview With the Vampire based on this novel stars Brad Pitt as Louis and Tom Cruise as Lestat.

The Vampire Lestat(1985)-The first story of the Chronicles as told by Lestat himself. How he become into being, his family, the start of the vampires is also revealed here. A very dark novel which covers the late 1700's in France to the 1980's in New Orleans.

Queen Of The Damned(1988)-A sold continuation of the story in The Vampire Lestat as told my Lestat. The secrets of the original vampires revealed in tales of ancient Rome and Egypt.

Tale Of The Body Theif(1992)-A throughly entertaining novel set almost totally in the modern era involving body switching and the occult.

Memnoch The Devil(1995)-Controversal novel among Ricean fans. Lestat, God and the Devil, perhaps an attempt at Dante's Inferno for the modern reader. Not really a vampire book but still enjoyable. At one time it was going to be the final Vampire Chronicle but Anne Rice has left the door wide open for another. Lestat will return!
