Anne Rice, author of Interview With a Vampire and other favorite vampire tales is taking her literature to the next level: video books!

The author had just signed a deal with video book company Vook to turn her book The Master of Rampling Gate into a multimedia experience. Basically, Vooks integrate text, video and social networking into your reading experience. Anne explained she was excited to see how the technology will bring her over 25 year old story to a new generation:

"Vook represents a very exciting combination of new technological elements, that I think is long overdo in publishing. I'm excited that The Master of Rampling Gate is going to have new life in this form, and cannot wait to see the finished product. I'm not sure that my mind can conceive of all the possibilities of this new form. I'm learning. And it feels good."

Sounds like it could be a lot of fun for die hard fans, if nothing else.

Seriously, Twilighters: how come you guys don't have cool shiz like this? Wouldn't you just love a new way to girlishly squeal over a the story you've read over 400 times?!

    *genuflects, makes offerings of gold, precious stones, Russian icons & then makes a human sacrifice of a fat Cuban…it is bloody & violent but the Goddess is pleased*

    Stephanie Meyer couldn't tie Anne Rice's shoe laces on a good fucking day!!

    Wow! Does she mean "overdue?" What lovely spelling skills from a bestselling author!

    Can't even compare Twilight to Anne Rice. Twilight is so horribly written and the Vampire Chronicles are awesome!
    Other than the vamps one has nothing to do with the other.

    Umm does this sound like the "interactive comic book" invention from the movie "Big" to anyone else?



  13. 13

    I read her recent book and it STINKS big ones! She better go back to vamps!

    Anne left Nola and found god…but despite this dulling her edge she still out writes S Meyers. Anne's vampires are vampires while the Twilight vamps are like the hello kitty of vamps - cute to look at and thats it. I've been in love with Lestat since I was introduced to him 26 yrs ago.

    must you incorporate twilight into everything mario? this post would have been perfectly fine without the mention of twilight. i mean, there are lots of anne rice fans out there! there would be more comments on this if you had left out twilight….just sayin!

    do you have some weird obsession over Twilight or something, Mario??? Anne Rice is amazing, and Stephenie Meyer can go blow…Twilight doesnt need another *accessory* to its lame world…

    get a new hobbie. (and Rob doesnt count as a hobbie)

    … just because you like twilight doesn't mean that you dont like Anna Rice.
    Everyone has different taste, why do people have to jump at the twilight fans?
    i like BOTH of these authors..

    Maybe Stephenie isn't listening to you because she writes for tweens.People that your opinion doesn't matter about their reading material.YOU MORAN!!!!!
