“For the dedicated Anne Rice/Lestat fan as well as the newcomer just discovering the series, this soft-cover volume is a must.”
For those who may find themselves overwhelmed by the many characters appearing in The Vampire Chronicles series, here is the ultimate answer.
Compiled by a long-time reader and fan of the series, this Alphabettery encompasses all the characters in the novels from A (Aaron Lightner) to Z (Zenobia).
Each character’s origin, first appearance in a story, and his/her relationship to Lestat and others in the series is also detailed, with cross-referencing after each explanation, as in:
“KAREN RHINEHART (alias). When Kapetria the Replimoid begins working at Collingsworth Pharmaceuticals to be secretly nearer to the CEO, the vampire Gregory Duff Collingsworth, she takes the alias “Dr. Karen Rhinehart” to hide her immortal nature. The Alias “Dr. Karen Rhinehart” appears in Prince Lestat and the Reamls of Atlantis (2016). For more perspectives on Dr. Rhinehart’s alias, read the Alphabettery entries Collingsworth Pharmaceuticals, Gregory Duff Collingsworth, Kapetria, and Replimoid.”
The Vampire Chronicles is also listed, with a complete bibliography.
With a full color title page, there are approximately 513 entries, as well as a list of acknowledgements and an index. Each entry has the name in Old English lettering.
The Alphabettery also features a 17-page introduction by The Vampire Chronicles author Anne Rice. Chapter headings, historiated initials beginning chapter text, and illustrations by Mark Edward Geyer have the precision and look of woodcuts.
For the dedicated Anne Rice/Lestat fan as well as the newcomer just discovering the series, this soft-cover volume is a must, and will be a compilation to be treasured.
