Stephenie Meyer's vampire pushes Wuthering Heights to top of Waterstone's classics chart

From Telegraph UK

Teenage readers of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight fantasy books have been flocking to buy Emily Brontë’s 1847 novel, because it is the central character's favourite book.

In Eclipse, the third book in Meyer's series, Bella Swan, the chaste love of vampire Edward Cullen, makes repeated references to Brontë’s masterpiece.

She compares the vampire to turbulent Heathcliff as she quotes Brontë’s heroine Cathy.

"If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger," she tells Edward.

Sarah Clarke, children's books buyer for Waterstone's, said: "By highlighting Wuthering Heights in her novels, Stephenie Meyer has introduced Emily Brontë to the Twilight generation."

Neil Gaiman Talks Vampires

also from Entertainment Weekly

Recently, EW's cover story looked at the resurgence of vampires in popular culture, including some thoughts from writer Neil Gaiman about why it's time for bloodsuckers to go back underground. He had a lot more to say on the topic, which we share here.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: In contemporary pop culture, we've seen vampires make that move from horror flick fear agents to more fallen or misunderstood social outcasts, who set moral limits on their nature or who see themselves as beyond morality. How did vampires go from being monsters to anti-heroes?
NEIL GAIMAN: I think mostly it has to do with what vampires get to represent. Because at the point where we begin vampire fiction, you're in Victorian days. And we're looking initially at the sort of antics of...that wonderful Victorian bestseller Dracula. And in each case you have characters who fundamentally represent sexuality. Dracula is a great novel of sexual seduction...and rape and sex. Vampirism is always an excellent way of talking about sex without talking about sex. So it makes complete sense that your solid Victorian vampires were fundamentally evil. And you can have that nice big stake hammered through them as a way of putting them to rest.

'True Blood' preview: The 'Frenzy' is almost here. How has this season been better than last season?

from Ent weekly

Less than 12 hours to go before “Frenzy,” the second-to-last episode of True Blood this season. We know we’re going to see Evan Rachel Wood as Sophie-Anne, the Vampire Queen of Louisiana. We know from this HBO clip that Tara is pretty distraught over something bad happening to Eggs:

As the season winds down/cranks up to a conclusion, let’s list the ways in which this second season surpassed the first, shall we? I’ll start with three, you take it from there:

• Producer-writer Alan Ball took the characters created by Charlaine Harris and, made bold by the ratings success of the first season, really ran with them — he’s made them his own.

• As a result, Ball’s True Blood has something in common with Ball’s Six Feet Under (something besides characters who spend time under the ground, that is): a predilection for embracing chance, love, chaos, desire, and possible self-destruction.

• Victims have taken control of their own destinties. Think about it: Sookie spent a lot of time last season at the mercy of her growing love for Bill without knowing how to harness her own powers. Her grandmother was murdered. Tara was put through the emotional wringer with her alcoholic mother and a lot of heartache when it came to men she was attracted to. Jason got suckered into the Fellowship of the Sun. But each of these characters has fought back, found reasons to become angry, cagey, and bursting with newfound power.

True Blood Episode 11 " Frenzy " what you should know


With the crisis in Bon Temps careening out of control, Bill seeks out the advice of Sophie-Anne (Evan Rachel Wood), the Vampire Queen of Louisiana, but must exercise patience before she gives him critical information. Meanwhile, Sookie and Lafayette find that protecting Tara from herself is more difficult than they anticipated; a desperate Sam turns to an unlikely source for assistance; and Jessica tests Hoyt’s allegiance to Maxine.

Casting Calls
[HADLEY HALE] Sookie's (Anna Paquin) cousin, this fresh-faced 20 something year old country girl is locked in a steamy clinch with the vampire queen(Evan Rachel Wood). The dazed Hadley has been seduced into a whole other world -- but she still feels the pull of her human roots...3 speeches & 1 line, 3 scenes (1) May recur next season in a few episodes

[LUDIS] Under 30. This straight, handsome, well-built Latvian man (with or without an accent), clad only in gym shorts, is only too delighted to volunteer for another man's "feed"...3 lines, 1 scene (44)

[FRENZY MAN IN DRESS] This skinny, tattooed, "frenzy-eyed" man is wearing a badly ripped dress that doesn't do a thing for him...1 line, 1 scene (sptv050769 54) The more tattoos the better

Everything I have is here
