Anne Rice Ponders Lestat Comeback on Facebook

Novelist Anne Rice wrote an intriguing one-sentence post on Facebook recently: “If you want Lestat to come back, can you tell me why in one sentence?”

Her die-hard fans left more than 8,100 comments explaining why they hoped she’d bring back the vampire who starred in her beloved Vampire Chronicles series (including her bestseller, The Vampire Lestat). She followed up the post with another short and cryptic update: “In one sentence, what one thing do you NOT like about Lestat?”

Would you read a new Lestat book? Could thousands of fans convince the horror novelist to bring back her famous character?
