The Gospel according to Anne

Anne Rice appears to be making a huge change in her long career as a best-selling horror author. It seems like she's rediscovered her Catholic roots and plans to write "only for the Lord" from now on. Her next book coming out is part one of a trilogy that features a 7-year old Jesus Christ, narrated by Jesus himself.

*blinks*

Looks like she's come a looooong way since 'Exit to Eden'.

Oh Christ.

Oh shit! Jesus Stu! It shouldn't be possible, but just you wait - she'll suck all the humanity out of Jesus.

What's the betting that he'll grow up alongside Mary Magdelene? A real Mary Sue to join in...

*thunk* I think my brain just broke.

Strangely enough, the first thing I thought of when I read this was, "So, what, she's going to write the adventures of Encyclopedia Christ, Boy Detective?" Then I wondered if the reference was too obscure or American for you to understand, but I wrote it down anyway.

How strictly Catholic is this going to be, 'cause somehow I can't imagine Anne Rice writing her grocery list without including vague homoerotic undertones to it, let alone a seven-year-old Messiah.

So isn't this the lady who does her ends over any possible fan-fic? Is she likely to come around and kick my door in, and possibly my face, if I write anything about the boy Jesus for my Sunday School group? I tremble!

So, she'll be writing fanfiction or RPF depending on your faith. Pot, kettle...

I saw that the last time I checked Amazon to see when her next book was coming out. Needless to say... I was... dumbstruck. I mean...how can you go from one extreme to the other like that?
