Buffy studies (or Buffyology) is the study of Joss Whedon's popular television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and, to a lesser extent, its spin-off program Angel. It explores issues related to gender and other philosophical issues as expressed through the content of these shows in the fictional Buffyverse. Neda Ulaby of NPR describes Buffy as having a "special following among academics, some of whom have staked a claim in what they call 'Buffy Studies'".

The Buffy Chronicles: The Unofficial Companion to Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a fun and informative look at the first season and a half of the series. From body snatchers and poltergeists to werewolves and mummies, it provides the inside track on the show's strange yet seductive characters and topics. The Buffy Chronicles includes a retrospective of the film that started it all, a history of vampire legends, cast information, plot synopses, and behind-the-scenes trivia. From "The Death Toll," a roster of who's been killed by whom in each episode, to "I Fall to Pieces," a guide to the alternative music and bands that add so much atmosphere, this book has everything Buffy's fans could want.This book has not been prepared, approved, licensed, endorsed or in any way authorized by any entity that created or produced Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
  • Finally got to read this after a hectic Christmas - and was it worth waiting for! I have many other series guide but, excuse the pun, there's never much to sink your teeth into. This is a wonderfully rich banquet of information! First of all, it assumes the ready has actually _seen_ the show -- a really nice touch. We don't have to read some steroid-pumped episode guide before getting to new information. There's just enough episode description to jog your memory, then -boom!- onto the original material. And there's such variety here! Film history, bloopers, funny stuff - everything aimed straight at fans who've grown up past the "What's Buffy's favorite color" sort of thing that clogs every second guide-to book out there. Secondly, this book assums a broad viewing audience and delivers a heaping helping of well-reasoned, minutely-researched articles touching on every aspect of the program. I'm a professor of medieval history and I was still floored by the effortless way this author tracked down the perfect examples to illustrate dozens of pieces! An amazing piece of research, seamlessly delivered in an easy, conversational style. My sixteen-year-old daught and my wife are equally delighted with it. Last, it was just bloody funny! Genge has put together a terrific book that not only sends you back to the show with an entirely new appreciation for the original product, but a book that, for many readers, will likely be re-read with pleasure long after the show leaves the airwaves. A rare treat.

  • I started to hate this book when I was only 4 pages into it. However, the strength of the coverage on folklore made the reading experience less painful. What I hated about the book was that there information on the TV show was WAY off base. The author said that vampires on the TV show can fly. I could not believe that an author for a Buffy book would come to that conclusion. The vampires on Buffy can't fly!!! I even verified this fact with an insider to the show. The author also said that Angel's soul may not be his own. Well, who's soul would it be if it wasn't his own. I found other Buffy errors in this book too. Much of the book, however, dealt with the folklore behind the various creatures on the show. This aspect of the book was good although some of it was pretty dry reading. The book was basically one big episode guide. Any extra information was presented as sidebars. The quizzes in the book were pretty bad too. For the most part, the questions did not pertain to the content of the show. An example of this is a question that asks which of four songs does not pertain to vampires or which of four movies do not pertain to vampires (the songs and movies are not even connected to Buffy except that they are about vampires). If you want a good quiz for Buffy fans, check out the book entitled "Bite Me : Sarah Michelle Gellar and Buffy the Vampire Slayer." If you want a book that will give you the best insight on the show (and itself includes folklore) check out "The Watcher's Guide" by Christopher Golden and Nancy Holder. Leave the "Buffy Chronicles" on the shelf.

  • Genge's book covers the first two seasons of BtVS. For each episode, there is a short description consisting of a few sentences, followed by an essay related (often tangentially) to the episode topic. A few examples:
    'The Pack' - The author argues that historically, witches were considered to be satanists, however unfashionable that argument might be today.
    'I Robot' - an essay about real-life techopagans and the internet.
    'Nightmares' - an essay about out-of-body experiences from the perspective of medical science.
    'Some Assembly Required' - about 19th century grave-robbers in Britain.
    'Halloween' - The author explains how Halloween, as we know it, actually began in the 1930s in the US!
    These essays are often interesting background material. However, readers will be severely disappointed if they're looking for a description of plots, character development, or the symbolism underlying the episodes. An additional difficulty is that the BtVS writers have played fast and loose with historical authenticity (to the extent that monsters have any historical roots at all). Just as Star Trek is a poor vehicle for learning about physics, BtVS does not hold up very well when treated as a documentary about medieval folklore and mythology.

  • On the one hand, this really isn't that bad of a companion volume to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer television series. By the standard of such things "The Buffy Chronicles" is clearly above average. The problem is that "The Watcher's Guide" is THE standard by which all such works should be judged. There are a few things you get from this one that aren't in the "official companion," and a true fan will not mind having both on their shelf. But if you only get one, this ain't it boys and girls.

  • This has to be my favorite informative Buffy book. It tells about the director, make up artists, and everything you ever wanted to know. It even has a quiz section to test you Buff knowledge.

  • UNOFFICIAL is right! Please don't even bother. This book contains nothing that a true Buffy fan doesn't already know. It has no real info on the show and some of the mythology and legends it talks about are in direct contradiction with the show's mythology. If you want an episode guide with lots of extras get the Watcher's Guide.

  • This book is pretty good if you are looking for insight in the actual show such as what happend in this episode but if you're looking for hardcore info on buffy it's not here.I suggest to look at the Scene book on sarah to get more info on the actor.

  • I have recently purchased this book, aswell as others. I have found that because it is unofficial it lacks in information and colour photo's. It does have questions - multiple choice - which can be fun. The Watcher's Guide - official is much better with cool info.
