Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force — a story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the senses. It is a novel only Anne Rice could write. Frankenstein , an instant bestseller and an important ancestor of both the horror and science fiction genres, not only tells a terrifying story, but also raises profound, disturbing questions about the very nature of life and the place of humankind within the cosmos: What does it mean to be human?
What responsibilities do we have to each other? How far can we go in tampering with Nature? In our age, filled with news of organ donation genetic engineering, and bio-terrorism, these questions are more relevant than ever. I had to add one more classic read for this. And Frankenstein is another one I hold dear. I only read it just last year, but it really made an impression on me and I can understand why Shelley is Queen and known as the creator of Sci-fi to many.
Only in Derry the haunting is real …. They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror.

I talked about the read-along I joined for this, here. In the walled city-state of Alu, Kammani wants nothing more than to become the accomplished healer her father used to be before her family was cast out of their privileged life in shame. A tradition. And Nanaea believes it is her chance to live an even grander life than the one that was stolen from her. Desperate to save her sister, Kammani schemes her way into the palace to heal the ruler.
There she discovers more danger lurking in the sand-stone corridors than she could have ever imagined and that her own life—and heart—are at stake. How we handle and deal with that kind of a burden or haunting is fascinating to me as a writer.

TP: Contradiction and conflict are the basis for all good drama, and probably humor as well. He is very accepting of his strange world, which gives the book its flavor and its humor.

For that reason alone you need opposites to interact at some level to drive up the sense of unease. CG: You never seem to judge your characters, no matter how weird or goofy or outrageous they act. TP: Ambiguity is more interesting and more realistic, I feel, than clearly drawn lines between good and bad.
Horrifying someone can be relatively easy—you can write about people dropped in boiling water or give graphic details of evisceration or some other ugly event. Without some emotional context, without really caring for the characters, those are just exercises in sadism. The gray area of our personalities and our sense of morality are where the disquieting and unsettling stuff really happens. The biggest laughs too. There are many novels that deal with small town decadence, freaks, and family secrets.
How would you say it was unique? TP: The tone of the narrative voice is pretty different because I tried to distill "Southern sadism" as filtered through New York attitude. Thomas is a very confident man despite all the insanity and supernatural oddity that occurs around him. It gives him quite an urban worldview.
