Vampires, passion, teenage angst, cigarettes and alcohol, sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. Whether you're a seasoned Slayerette, a Scooby groupie or a novice, this book offers you a guide to the surreal world of Sunnydale. Despite its change of network and the lead character having died, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"'s literal representation of teenage horrors still touches on a universal truth. In this unofficial guide, the author analyses season six, discussing it episode by episode and presenting the highlights in categories such as: a little learning is a dangerous thing; I just love your accent; and it's a designer label. He unearths pop culture references, draws attention to the occasions when logic flies out of the window, discusses the themes covered from season one to five and includes sections on the series creator Joss Whedon, the novels and the websites.

Review:

'Topping's terrific tome adopts the perfect attitude to this fizzing phenomenon... He rattles through each episode with focus on teen-angst metaphors, the brilliant feminist subtexts, and the dazzling use of "valley speak"... Colour me stunned' Uncut 'An aide-memoire, a squire to the Buffyverse and an exciting resource of bitchy lines rolled into one. Fans will adore it' TV Zone
