Yes. Some of the last books in the VC series aren’t so much connected. Blood and Gold is a retelling of The Vampire Armand but from the point of view of Marius and it has bits from The Vampire Lestat and the Queen of the Damned. So if you’re not very keen on rereading that, you can go straight to Blackwood Farm.
A little side note here, tho. Blackwood Farm and Blood Canticle are where the Vampire Chronicles and the Mayfair Witches meet, so if you’ve read The Witching Hour, Lasher and Taltos before that, it’ll be easier for you to follow some of the things concerning the backstory.

'Interview With The Vampire: Claudia's Story' (graphic novel)
'A richly-illustrated adaptation of Anne Rice's novel, told through the eyes of the vampire Claudia, who was just a little girl when she was turned by the vampire Lestat. Though she spends many years of happiness with her two vampire fathers, she gradually grows discontent with their insistence upon treating her like a little girl, even though she has lived as long as any mortal and her lust to kill is certainly no less than theirs…'
I’ve only just discovered this, and despite this story being oh-so-many years old, I’d still like to read it. I must admit that I’ve never been a huge fan of manga artwork, but this is something quite beautiful. The illustrations are so lush and full of detail and the decision to present everything in sepia tone (with red as a spot colour for blood) is genius. Heck, I might have to buy it just for the portrayal of moody Louis. He always was my favourite of Rice’s vampires (sorry Lestat, you’re too arrogant).
Hi, everyone! Anne Rice has been incredibly photogenic throughout the years. Here’s one I found today; thought you all might like to see it. It was taken in 1992.
Doesn’t Anne look fantastic? (via Becket’s facebook page)
Does anyone know which Anne Rice book was published in 1992?
