What do you make of the vogue for vampires in this country? The heroine of your Sookie Stackhouse novels, a telepathic waitress who lives in Bon Temps, La., and consorts with supernatural friends, is about to re-emerge in a new season of the HBO series “True Blood,” as well as in your 10th best seller.
