Bite Me
Wishing a very happy 70th birthday to the Queen of the Damned Vampires, Anne Rice!

I'm going to say this upfront...I'm not a fan of coiffed and cultured vampires. In fact, I'm really not crazy about the bloodsuckers in general unless they're true badasses. I enjoyed Stephen King's take on them in 'Salem's Lot and Jonathan Maberry's Ruger & clan in his Pine Deep Trilogy. But the moment you start romanticizing them, or heaven forbid, dousing them in glitter, then I'm beating it back to Vlad the Impaler's forest of human shish kabobs and not coming out until all the vampire-lites have packed up their pixie dust and blown away. 

But that's just me...No offense to Ms. Rice and her fans. She's a fine writer and I've enjoyed many of her other works including Exit to Eden and her Anne Rice
erotic take on Sleeping Beauty written under the nom of A.N. Roquelaure (Anne under a cloak). I also have a lot of respect for her for publicly airing her moral problems with organized religion
