Christopher Rice @ Books Inc.

When a young gay flight attendant who isn't quite romantically involved with a Saudi prince vanishes during a terrorist bombing of a Hong Kong hotel, his sister must insert herself into a complex book plot to clear his name. So goes the sequence of events in The Moonlit Earth, the latest novel from Christopher Rice, who also wrote A Density of Souls (which, thanks to an outcast character named Stephen, garnered a sizable gay readership) and Snow Garden (with which the author simultaneously tried to shrug off the term "gay author" and took home a Lambda Literary Award). Rice has been taking readers on various storytelling thrill-rides for a decade now, creating serpentine plots usually involving dark secrets, sexuality, and murder. He also happens to be the son of poet Stan Rice and vampire queen (and eventual chronicler of the life of Jesus Christ) Anne Rice. Come hear Chri-Ri, steeped in a macabre literary legacy, read from his latest tangled web tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Books Inc. (Free)
