Happy 20th anniversary, Buffy The Vampire Slayer!
Buffy may have premiered twenty years ago but it feels like the Buffy fandom is stronger now than ever! There’s a ton on the horizon for Buffy: Hot Topic is releasing a new clothing line, a Buffy board game is coming out, and we’ve got a little something up our sleeves as well! You see, we think the most exciting thing to come (and we aren’t biased at all) is Buffy the Vampire Slayer 20 Years of Slaying: The Watcher’s Guide by Christopher Golden. This watcher’s guide is authorized and has exciting, exclusive content including behind-the-scenes info, never-filmed dialogue from the original scripts, and so much more. PLUS, there are 21 new interviews with the cast and crew, including Joss Whedon! We’re so excited for this release because it means we’ll get more memorable scenes like this
You can trust us when we say this is the book of the Buffy Fandom’s dreams. After all, we take Buffy the Vampire Slayer very seriously here at Riveted, as demonstrated by the fact that we have a life-sized cut-out of Spike.
Here’s the official description:
A special hardcover collector’s edition of the authorized Buffy the Vampire Slayer Watcher’s Guides, now with updated content from the cast and crew!
As long as there have been vampires, there has been the Slayer. One girl in all the world to find them where they gather and to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their numbers.
From the first vampire staking to the last glimpse of Sunnydale, Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a genre-busting hit, attracting millions of fans worldwide. Even now, two decades later, Buffy the Vampire Slayer still plays a role in shaping an entire generation of media.
Just in time for the show’s twentieth anniversary, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Watcher’s Guides have been compiled into one hardcover collector’s edition for the first time! Inside, you’ll find all the best content from Volumes 1–3 of the original Watcher’s Guides, as well as exclusive new content, including never-before-seen interviews with the cast and crew.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer 20 Years of Slaying: The Watcher’s Guide will be available on October 3. You can preorder right now, but if you’d rather just add it to your shelf on Goodreads, here’s a link. Either way, our love of Buffy the Vampire Slayer won’t let us let you forget. We’ll be talking about this book a lot as the release date approaches!
