|“||Anne Rice (born Howard Allen O'Brien on October 4, 1941), the second daughter of an Irish Catholic family, is an author of horror/fantasy stories, who often writes about vampires, mummies and witches. Her works have been a major influence on the Goth youth subculture, and she has published several works with sado-masochistic themes. She is currently working on a trilogy about the life of Jesus Christ.||”|
Anne vs. The Fans
Anne Rice's career has been marked by an adversarial relationship with her fans. In April 2000, she forbade fanfiction based on her works, causing the removal of the Anne Rice section from fanfiction.net. And she became Fandom Wank-legend material when she showed up on Amazon.com to tell negative reviewers they were interrogating the text from the wrong perspective.

- "Seldom do I really answer those who criticize my work."
- "You are interrogating this text from the wrong perspective."
- "You have strained my Dickensean principles to the max."
- "I'm justifiably proud of being read by intellectual giants and waitresses in trailer parks, in fact, I love it, but who in the world are you?"
- "And Yo, you dude, the slang police! Lestat talks like I do. He always has and he always will."
- -- all from her Amazon "review" of her novel Blood Canticle
- "But in humility, I have attempted something transformative which we writers dare to call a miracle in the imperfect human idiom we possess. It's to bring Him here in the form a story, and that story is Christ The Lord."
