In The Shadow of the Vampire
by Jana Marcus
Foreword by Katherine Ramsland
7 x 10 inches
Publisher: Thunder's Mouth Pr; 1 edition (November 1997)
Photojournalist Marcus compiles the thoughts and moody, moony photos of a hundred attendees at Rice's annual Gathering of the Coven Ball.... For every partygoer who enthuses about blood-drinking rituals, 10 more thoughtfully grapple with Rice's work, persona, and commercialism (they're not thrilled with her Lestat-themed restaurant). This passionate subculture comes, if not quite alive, then certainly undead on the page. -- Entertainment Weekly
