Buffyverse-related interview with Keith R.A. DeCandido (krad). SlayerLit Q&A session on "The Deathless", "Blackout" and the Buffyverse. We last heard from SlayerLit in their Robert Joesph Levy Q&A on "Go Ask Malice".
I know many fans have tried Buffy novels before and been disappointed, but don't let that stop you from trying the two summer novels, both of which explore slayer origin stories, "Go Ask Malice" is presented as the diary of Faith in the months before she arrived in Sunnydale. Whilst "Blackout" is the story of Nikki Wood from her calling onwards - the bulk of the story takes place in the 1970s. Both novels are superb, Levy and Krad should be proud.
For anyone interested, there are some Buffyverse book review sites, though most do not feature reviews of the newest books:
*SlayerLit Buffy reviews - Offers some nice in-depth analyses.
*Litefoot reviews - Honest opinions about many of the books (in some cases brutally so).
*Sci-fi-online reviews - Includes several dozen reviews on the Buffy & Angel books (including review of "Go Ask Malice").
*Wiki:Buffyverse chronology - They can't review, but otherwise offer a complete guide to books/comics.
*Nika Summers reviews - Short and upbeat reviews for most of the Buffy books.
