Critic Reviews

"A fun, sassy, intelligent and sarcastic book by and for those who understand the fascination with The Slayer, her friends and her foes. I loved it!" (Nora Roberts)
"This collection of smart, sassy, mind-bending essays is a fitting tribute to Joss Whedon's beloved series. Read them and weep - for the loss of a great show that clearly encouraged its fans to think great thoughts." (Michael Logan, TV Guide)
"Rejoice, O Buffyphiles! It’s a delight to learn that the most famous writers in the business are also the biggest fans of our favorite show, and they live up to their promise! This captivating collection will make you cheer, laugh, growl (with glee!), and think - the same as the series! From sublimely thought-provoking to slapstick hilarious, this book is just as relentlessly entertaining, capturing the essence of what we love about the Buffy the Vampire Slayer!" (PN Elrod, author of The Vampire Files)
