My early Christmas present arrived a couple days ago in a box from McFarland Publishing with authors’ copies of Buffy Goes Dark, the anthology of essays on seasons 6 and 7 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer that I co-edited with Lynne Y. Edwards of Ursinus College and James B. South of Marquette University:

Buffy Goes Dark

We could not be happier with this cover, by the way!

Although the “official” publication date is 2009, the book is apparently on sale now, so if you were kind or enthusiastic enough to pre-order it, perhaps from Amazon.com, it should arrive soon.

Thanks again to the contributors, and to all who made Buffy worth writing about—especially Marti Noxon and Jane Espenson, who have essays dedicated to their contributions (by David Perry and David Kociemba) in the book, and of course, Joss Whedon, sine qua non!
