Anne Rice, author of ‘Interview with a Vampire,’ as well as many other vampire-type novels, has signed an agreement with Vook to produce a multimedia version of “The Master of Rampling Gate,” a 1984 short story published in Redbook magazine. This partnership merges two of the most popular fronts in the vampire craze: movies and books. Now if they can add some comics to the package, they’ll have the whole market cornered.

In a statement released by Vook today, Rice said, “Vook represents a very exciting combination of new technological elements, that I think is long overdo in publishing. I’m excited that ‘The Master of Rampling Gate’ is going to have new life in this form, and cannot wait to see the finished product. I’m not sure that my mind can conceive of all the possibilities of this new form. I’m learning. And it feels good.”

Both AP and CNBC did writeups of the deal. What do you think of this whole Vook thing?
