    Note, April 16, 2016 I ve just edited this review to correct a factual error which I discovered had crept in due to my relative unfamiliarity with the series.I saw and liked the movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which inspired the TV series of the same name and while I was never a hardcore fan of the series I don t watch enough TV to be a hardcore fan of anything , when it was syndicated in this area several years ago I used to watch scattered episodes whenever I could, and mostly liked what I saw So when I had a chance to pick up this spin off collection of short stories at a yard sale some years ago, I did Finding myself between novels recently, I picked it up as a fill in read, frankly not expecting a lot from it The quality of the stories was a pleasant surprise though in the four and 1 2 star range but I rounded up.My theory of the life cycle of TV programs, based on several examples, runs like this show starts with a good premise and good execution and gets loyal fans a few seasons in usually , the producers decide to forestall possible fan boredom by introducing increasingly far out ove...

    Two of these were terrible, two were ok, and the first one was good.Oh wait there were six.Three of these were terrible Anyway, the title of this says Volume 1 but they never made a Volume 2 so I guess that s all you need to know.

    A lot of the hate this book is receiving seem to come from a desire of expectations and the product of reality No, this isn t an anthology of 6 fun short stories following a different character on the cover Instead, this is like 6 bonus episodes taking place between the first 2 seasons of the show.Unfortunately, the execution could be a lot better.The first story by Michelle West is absolutely brilliant and should be the prime example of how Buffy should work in prose On point dialogue, meaningful visual metaphors, and intertwining real life themes of growing up in this case, the aftermath of a parents divorce It s a shame this author didn t write a full Buffy novel, but I will definitely be checking out some of her original works.The second story by Nancy Holder, an acclaimed Buffy author but, seemingly, only when she pens with Christopher Golden , is easily the most forgettable story here The idea is interesting the disposing of the Master s bones from the season 1 finale , it solidifies t...

    DNF at around 75%This is a collection of short stories with chapters alternating between Buffy s POV and the POV of Giles Jenny Angel Willow and or Xander It is set straight after season 1 ends so where Buffy dies at the hands of the master and the book touches on her dealing with her short death while on holiday in LA with her Dad and the rest of the gang dealing with the shapeshifters and ghouls wrecking havoc in her absence back in Sunnydale I have tried desperately to get into these books as I adore the series and I thought these would be a nice way to reminiscence Maybe it was because this book read in part like really bad fan fic no Whedon magic here or whether it was because it was a collection of 6 different short stories so no real time to go into character storyline development or maybe it was because there were several different authors involved and some of the writing I liked the Giles Jenny one , but some of the...

    This is an entertaining collection of short stories that, as the title suggests, was supposed to show us what the Buffy Scooby Gang did during the Summer after the Master was eliminated There are six stories,and as the cover shows six characters, I assumed that each person would get one story.Not so In fact Cordelia gets nothing After Buffy goes to LA to stay with her Dad, a couple of the stories ti...

    This is a short story collection about the summer in between seasons 1 and 2 of Buffy During this summer according to the book Buffy went to Los Angeles with her dad for a few months while Angel, Jenny, Giles, Xander and Willow are left behind to keep Sunnydale safe The book benefits from having the framing device and all the stories take place in chronological order, although compared to the Tales of the Slayer short story collections, this book lacks a real stand out great story Here s what I thought of the individual stories Dust by Michelle West A story about Buffy spending the summer in LA with her dad and the aftermath of her own death and battle with the master Buffy also has visions of death for whomever she touches Not much holds up here continuity wise with the series relationship with dad, Master s resurrection, Joyce s future death and all the dream sequences sapped any urgency or threat of danger 2 out of 5.Absalom Rising by Nancy Holder Angel, Giles, Willow, Xander and Jenny Calendar try to figure out what to do with the Master s bones while the anointed one and new vampire Absalom try to recover them The bones story line ended up being resolved better in the show, and this installment at worst contradicts ...
