A call to Buffy and Angel authors

This is a call to all scholars, critics, or anybody! who has ever written about the Buffyverse. In 2011 McFarland & Co. will be publishing my Bibliographic Guide to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel – a complete guide to everything published.  I have collected & annotated thousands of items, and I am beating the bushes for any stray work that may still be out there.  I am looking for:

  • Journal, newspaper, & magazine articles
  • Books
  • Essays in collections & anthologies
  • Chapters in books
  • Dissertations & theses (published and unpublished)
  • Conference papers (web or print published)
  • Novels, short stories
  • Reviews of any Buffyverse materials
  • Comics
  • Reference & guide books
  • Non-English language materials
  • CDs & DVDs, documentaries, music
  • Radio & TV broadcasts
  • Derivative unlicensed work (parodies, fanfic, vids etc)
  • Posters, art books, sketchbooks, any other print materials

Unpublished conference papers are not included. However, if they have been published anywhere, including on the web, they are included.

A new Table of Contents for the book is here.

If you, or anyone you know, has produced anything on Buffy, Angel, Fray, Season 8, etc, please drop me a line with your name.  I will send back to you everything that I have under your name.  If anything is missing, send the details to me and I’ll include it. Alternatively, send me your Buffy bibliography, and I’ll check it against what I have already.

My cutoff for the date of publication for any item is 31 Dec. 2009 (that’s the date of publication of your work). The emphasis is on “published” material (liberal interpretation – web-only essays, papers & articles are fine)

If you know anybody else who has written about the Buffyverse, please forward them this web address.  The more the merrier…

  1. I’m guessing it’s too late now, if I understand the Dec. 31st to be your deadline, but if not, I’d love to see if you have my name in your bibliography.

  2. No Dec. 31 is just the PUBLICATION cutoff date – I’ll be taking in material probably until April 2010. So plenty of time.

  3. Well, me an a few other fans have made a whedonverse magazine, in case that’s something you’re interested in.

  4. Hello! My name is Sergey Tvetkov. I wrote an article about Joss Whedon’s Creations and big part of this article is about Buffy. Article was published in russian sci-fi magazine “Если” (pronounced as Yeslee, means ‘If’) in November 2009. Article’s title is ‘Полет Светлячка’ ((pronounced as ‘Polyot Svetlyatchkar’, means ‘The Flight of ‘Firefly’ – it was editor’s choise, my title was ‘Visions of Whedon’), Buffy’s part titled ‘Buffy – Awards Collector’. Of course, article is in russian.

    And I know about another russian article about Buffyverse. Author – Yelena Haetskaya, title – ‘Правило вампира’ (The Rule of the Vampire), magazine – ‘FANтастика’ (FANtastic), #4 (June) 2007. This one is also in russian.

    • Ouch! I mistyped my own name! In fact my name is Sergey Tsvetkov.

      • Спасибо Сергей. Я добавил две статьи.
