If you love all things vampire, then you want to pick up this week’s Entertainment Weekly. Inside you’ll find EW’s picks for the 20 greatest vampires, including, of course, that damn sparkly one. There are also brief interviews with some of the most popular authors of vampire fiction, including Anne Rice and Charlaine Harris.
I thought that Laurell Hamilton, author of the Anita Blake series, came off as a little full of herself in her interview:
EW: What are your thoughts on the Twilight phenomenon?
L.H.: Stephanie Meyer has come and she’s taken the genre that I sort of pioneered.
Really? I’m pretty sure that Anne Rice(The Vampire Chronicles) or L.J. Smith(Vampire Diaries) might take issue with that statement. I won’t even start on how Ms. Hamilton has destroyed what started out as a pretty cool vampire hunter series with her last few books.
Moving on…click here to see a clip from tomorrow’s True Blood. It features that dreamy viking, Eric Northman. Enjoy.
