Reading the Vampire Slayer: The Complete, Unofficial Guide to 'Buffy' and 'Angel'
The first edition of Reading the Vampire Slayer was highly praised in both the fan magazine SFX and the Times Literary Supplement. This second edition is hugely revised and expanded to cover the sixth and seventh seasons of Buffy and the third and fourth seasons of Angel. It contains chapters on the relationship between Buffy and the lovelorn vampire Spike and on the thematic structure of Angel, as well as interviews on the writing of Buffy with scriptwriters Jane Espenson and Steven DeKnight. Individual chapters have been updated and the useful episode guide is expanded to cover all seven seasons of Buffy and the four seasons of Angel, as is Roz Kaveney's general introduction to the scenes and structures of each season.
