rice_lestatatlantis_ccFrom Anne Rice, conjurer of the beloved best sellers Interview with the Vampire and Prince Lestat, an ambitious and exhilarating new novel of utopian vision and power.

At the novel’s center: the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt, hero, leader, inspirer, irresistible force, irrepressible spirit, battling (and ultimately reconciling with) a strange otherworldly form that has somehow taken possession of Lestat’s undead body and soul. This ancient and mysterious power and unearthly spirit of vampire lore has all the force, history, and insidious reach of the unknowable Universe.

They slither out of the coffin, pale and hunched. They’re winged carriers of the apocalypse. They go to high school and fall in love. We asked you to share your favorite vampire stories, and you responded. Here are more than 30 of your favorites!
