Anne Rice’s “Wolf Gift” is being released February 14th, 2012 just in time for the 2012 Apocalypse!!
Whether Anne Rice is a strategist or not, she seems to be acutely aware of the waning vampire craze and the increasing popularity of werewolves. Or, she might have finally succumbed to that inner artistic desire to write a series about another supernatural creature. Either way, Anne Rice’s new werewolf book is something I’m not just lightly hyping but impatiently waiting for. Certain reliable sources from her Facebook page have alluded to the fact that the book might be approximately 600 pages which is the length of one of her later Vampire Chronicle novels: Blackwood Farm.
Knowing Anne Rice’s tendency to involve philosophical and psychological concepts in her novel, I’m sure “Wolf Gift” won’t merely be an artless bloodbath. Speculation aside as to the format or content of the book, I’m sure that whatever type of story we get will be something worthwhile and provocative.
Due to the upcoming release, I’ll be continuing my “Memnoch the Devil” discussion posts and also beginning a discussion series on both “The Vampire Lestat” and “Queen of the Damned,” as well. With college, the posts won’t nearly be as numerous as during summer break.
When February truly comes upon us, be on the lookout for many surprises on this blog that are relevant to the “Wolf’s Gift.” If anyone is willing to share their expertise on werewolf lore and would love to contribute a guest post related with Anne Rice’s universe, please contact me at narniafanatic(at)gmail(dot)com.
