This Day in History

Tomorrow marks the birthday of Anne Rice, well-known author of books that are appropriate for the spooky month of October. Best known for her Vampire Chronicles series, Rice also penned the Lives of the Mayfair Witches series. Vampires and witches -- it doesn't get scarier than that! Rice has released many other novels, some under the pen names Anne Rampling or A.N. Roquelaure. Recently, her books have taken a more religious tone, with the publication of the novel Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt.

The NCC Libraries have a sampling of Rice's work, as well as titles related to vampires and other imaginary monsters written by a variety of authors.
