Synopsis: With her hauntingly beautiful reimagining of archetypal monsters from classic horror, Anne Rice was the undisputed queen of contemporary gothic literature. Her contribution to the movement first established by Shelley, Stoker, and Stevenson revitalized and continues to inspire dark fiction writers and readers. Dancing in the Shadows pays tribute to Rice’s legacy with tales from today’s most innovative authors, drawing from the darkness where vampires and witches, mummies and rougarous, spirits and demons move to the music of nightmares. 


WIHM 2022: Anne Rice: A Life That Gave Us The Beauty Of The Night.

   Anne Rice burst onto the scene with her cult classic “Interview With a Vampire” in 1976.  It was the loss of her daughter Michelle that spurred her on to expand a short story into the gothic horror masterpiece we have today.  That novel turned all our preconceived notions of vampires on their heads.  After that success, she continued not only the Vampire Chronicles but also wrote about mummies (The Mummy Or Rameses the Damned which her son Christopher collaborated with her on the second and third novels in the trilogy), Jesus, angels, historical fiction, and even werewolves.   This doesn’t include her foray into erotic novels which are made up with the same lush details that she is known for in her other novels.
