Beloved Legendary Author Anne Rice Passed Away at Age 80

Welcome back to Lamon Reviews.

This past week we lost a legend and beloved author amongst readers young and old. Best known for Interview With the Vampire and Queen Of The Damned, which were both made into motion pictures, Anne Rice has a body of work that has inspired readers and aspiring writers alike.

I’ve loved Anne Rice novels since my Sophmore year. It wasn’t until I read a review of the film Interview with the Vampire that I read the book. Like most that was my first introduction to this wonderfully prolific authors work.

Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice

“Evil is always possible. And goodness is eternally difficult.”

Sad news about Anne Rice, though tempered by fact any of us would be lucky to leave behind an incredible, world-changing legacy like hers. She hasn’t died, but passed into legend.

I also want to take a moment and share a great article about the recent book bans happening around the United States. Bans mainly directed at books by queer authors and books including queer characters. Also included are many books that discuss race relations in a constructive manner.

The article below highlights those in the literary industry condemning this censorship.
