Oooh Lookie! Five Seasons Of Angel (a book)

Dragon Page: Five Seasons of Angel • Reviewed by Summer

This collection contains essays from well-known science fiction and fantasy writers, as well as a renowned sex therapist. While I may not agree with some of the opinions expressed in some of these essays, as a whole, this is a fun read for a die-hard fan of the Buffyverse.

You can get it here at Amazon.
The constellation of characters and themes created in Angel, the popular Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off, are explored in this collection of essays. A vampire author, a sex expert, a TV critic, a science fiction novelist, and Buffy writer Nancy Holder provide essays examining the different issues relating to the series, including Angelus as the prototypical high school bully, Angel as victim, Wesley's many transformations, how Spike fits into Angel, the takeover of Wolfram & Hart, and Lindsey's moral center.
