Another companion book for “True Blood,” Steve Newlin’s Field Guide to Vampires, is coming this fall, and we have a sneak peek of it along with a preview of next week’s Episode 6.07, “In the Evening.”
The full title of the book is Steve Newlin’s Field Guide to Vampires (And Other Creatures of Satan). It’s written by Gianna Sobol with Michael McMillian, who plays Newlin on the show. It will be available October 29th from Chronicle Books.
The vampires, werewolves, faeries, and other supernatural creatures that call Bon Temps, Louisiana, home aren’t universally accepted around town. Sweet-talking, bible-thumping Steve Newlin is their self-appointed nemesis. In his demented field guide, Steve has recorded all he knows about these Creatures of Satan, and that’s a lot: their strengths, their weaknesses, their bylaws, and, of course, how to kill them.
Sadly for Steve—but luckily for “True Blood” fans everywhere—his journal was stolen by Fangtasia vampires Pam and Eric, who have defaced it in a most disrespectful and snarky manner. A cunningly produced facsimile, and a hilarious read, the Field Guide to Vampires is packed with untold insight into our favorite TV characters, along with photos, letters, postcards, handwritten notes, and Steve’s own idle doodles in a scrapbook that perfectly captures the tongue-in-cheek camp that makes “True Blood” the most widely watched show on HBO.
Episode #6.07: “In the Evening” (airs 7/28/13)
Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) makes a last-ditch effort to save an ailing Nora (Lucy Griffiths). A tragedy close to home forces Sam (Sam Trammell) to ignore Alcide’s (Joe Manganiello) warning and return to Bon Temps. Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) shows her gratitude to James (Luke Grimes), a fellow incarcerated vamp, while an emboldened Sarah (Anna Camp) exacts a measure of revenge on Jason (Ryan Kwanten).
Written by Kate Barrow and directed by Scott Winant.
