As noted on NPR and mentioned on a couple friends' journals:

Anne Rice went and found God, and will now only be writing about the Jesus. See, a diabetic coma sent her back to the Church, and sadly I don't have the joke to follow up that punchline.

(The good news is, I won't have to lament the fact that she's continuing to write crappy vampire novels. Jesus does save! Heh heh heh.)
