The Search for Spike's Balls

In some of the work for Writercon, I've been in contact with the publisher of a new Buffy essay book (mentioned it earlier in the LJ). I *have* to have this book, if only for this:

“For all the beauty and wonder of Buffy the Vampire Slayer though, branding itself into our culture and collective hearts, I have noticed one disturbing trend in the series: the emasculation of the male characters. I have a theory about this. My belief is that Buffy is, in fact, her own special breed of vampire. Whereas traditional vampires suck the blood from their victims, Buffy drains the testosterone from the characters she is involved with—this appears to be the true source of the Slayer’s power.”

-Sherrilyn Kenyon, “The Search For Spike’s Balls”

The book is here: Seven Seasons of Buffy

LMFAO!

Okay, that's a good one, Chris - must read! *makes note*

And it occurs to me that my RO-mance novel reading buddy Fran has mentioned that Sherrilyn posts on her fave RO-mance board and I think I need to wander over there and ask if Ms. Kenyon would like to discuss further. ;)

I've heard about that book once before. And I'm so definitely going to be buying it when it comes out. :)

ROFL! See, I told you that was going to be a good one. *g* I think she's the one, someone mentioned, who wrote 8 or 9 novels last year? All that, and an insightful essay, too. Hee!

Yep, she was on a panel where she mentioned that she wrote 9 novels last year. And she has three small (under 5) children. Yipes.
