A serious fan of Anne Rice's "Vampire Chronicles" and "Mayfair Witches" series, Dickinson has crafted this guidebook on the theme of the New Orleans depicted in the books and the 1994 movie Interview with the Vampire. The result is a serviceable guide to the usual New Orleans sites?the French Quarter, the Garden District, cemeteries, and some of the former plantations on the Mississippi River, like the aptly named Oak Alley. Dickinson ignores modern features such as the Superdome and the Aquarium of the Americas, as well as the cultural life (jazz!) of the Crescent City. The disclaimer says that the book has not been approved by Rice or her publisher, so it contains plenty of fan-inspired speculation about the two series. Suitable only for libraries with big Anne Rice collections.?Mary Ann Parker, California Dept. of Water Resources Law Lib., Sacramento
