Not So Human
Richard's character is a much maligned one in the books and fandom for various reasons. In this series of essays, starting with my notorious general characterization essay and moving on to deconstruct Richard book by book, I look into what is the essence of Richard and what his character is really all about, when you read between the lines.
First Essay, on vampires, lycanthropes, sex, Anita, and Jean-Claude.
Second Essay, Richard in Circus of the Damned.
