True Blood Premieres Sunday: Hear from the Author, Charlaine Harris

With a new season of TRUE BLOOD around the corner, Charlaine Harris, author of the chart-topping DEAD RECKONING, among many other bestselling books, recently sat down with SciFi Book Club Senior Editor Rome Quezada at New York City's Standard Hotel during BookExpo America. DEAD RECKONING is the latest installment in The Sookie Stackhouse urban fantasy series about a telepathic waitress who works in a bar in the fictional Northern Louisiana town of Bon Temps, the basis for the hit HBO series, TRUE BLOOD.

Charlaine and Rome talked about Sookie Stackhouse—including the upcoming SOOKIE STACKHOUSE COMPANION—Harris's thoughts on TRUE BLOOD, the future of the series, and who some of her favorite science fiction authors are. Here's an excerpt onCharlaine's feelings on the first few episodes of TRUE BLOOD:

I think they got the spirit of the books exactly right. I knew Alan got me. I mean, we're both Southern people. I had seen his previous work so I knew he got the mixture of horror and comedy that I feel I'm expressing in the books. I like him. I think he's a genius.
