:: Cataloger needed, contact nearest crypt

Just finished rereading Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian -- another world I hate to leave. I would catalog Dracula's library in a heartbeat -- all those rare volumes and manuscripts make me salivate -- and I desperately want to visit the Radcliffe Camera to find out if they really do have a substantial vampire collection. Also want to see Constantinople. I didn't like Helen so much this time through, though; some of her actions are incomprehensible and she's not an entirely sympathetic character. Had forgotten how eerily wonderful the very last scene is.

Joy! Just discovered Kostova has another book out: The Swan Thieves. Like Dracula, my to-read list goes on and on and on...

I loved that book! Even bought two copies of it mid-way through, as I was flying somewhere (probably Vegas!) and didn't want to lug the hardcover with me.

Why can't people write smarty vampire books all the time?

Have you read her other one? I didn't even know about it until the other day but looks like it came out last year.

No, I had no idea she had another book out either. Adding it to the list! I'm quite sure it's true that one's life just goes on and on provided one has a list of books she hasn't read yet.
