Cover Reveal: Your First Look at Slayers & Vampires, an Unauthorized Oral History of BTVS and Angel

Slayers and Vampires FINAL

While we’re still waiting for that Slayer Handbook to come to fruition, a new book is here to fill you in on all things Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Slayers & Vampires: The Complete Uncensored, Unauthorized Oral History of Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel is the lovechild of Edward Gross and Mark. A. Altman, and includes compelling stories about the shows we’ve all grown to love so much.

They enlisted the help of Whedonverse members David Boreanaz, Eliza Dushku, James Marsters and more, as well as the man who started it all—Joss Whedon. Readers will get a behind-the-scenes look at the cult classics straight from the horse’s mouth. In honor of its upcoming debut, we’re providing a first look at the cover, as seen above.
