>Piers Anthony has already been mentioned several times but I can "me too" 
>that as well.

I think that, by this point, it should be assumed that any given person has 
been disappointed by Anthony, pending evidence to the contrary. :)

>Anne Rice. By Queen of the Damned I was thinking it was turning sour.

In my opinion, she made a critical error by changing the focus of the story 
>from Louis to Lestat.  Louis had a core of essential humanity to him that 
lent his character depth.  IMO, Lestat is just a spoiled playboy who she 
decided to give superpowers to.
