Seven Seasons of Buffy ed. Glenn Yeffeth
My two favorite essays were Chelsea Quinn Yarbro’s Lions, Gazelles, and Buffy and Sherrilyn Kenyon’s The Search for Spike’s Balls. I rather enjoyed the idea of the Buffy/lioness culling the vampire/gazelle herd to ensure the remainder qualified to survive. And although I didn’t think of it, Buffy and her men did have inverse relationships of power.
