From Vampires to Jesus
Author Anne Rice, known for her dark series of vampire novels (Interview With the Vampire and her most recent, Blood Canticle), has decided to head in a different direction with her writing. Her next book is titled . . . Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt. In the latest issue of Newsweek, Rice says, "I promised that from now on I would write only for the Lord." The book, which is scheduled for release next week, is described as "a novel about the 7-year-old Jesus, narrated by Christ himself."
