"You're Just A Mortal" - a new study of Buffy book. Or to give the book its full title "'You're Just A Mortal; You Couldn't Understand My Pain: Representations of Psychopathology in Season Five of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"'. Quite possibly the best title for an academic Buffy book ever.

I just discovered this on, can't seem to find much info about it. I'm thinking it could be a PhD. Can anyone else help?

Could be. His (very sparse) website just says it's "his first published work" but he's about the right age to be completing a PhD and it's around the right length too.

Eight quid for 92 pages ? Reckon i'll pass (unless the recommendations are truly stunning).
Apparently, from his previous work (following your link, Saje), Esther Ritchie is a name for Madonna. Already becoming less interested. Then there are no publishers listed, which usually means not published.
I saw this on the search a while ago (they use amazon as a database) and the publisher was listed as Donkey Punch Press. A google search found about 5 titles published by that label, and I found no website for them.

Pretty odd title for a publisher at least, wikipedia is your friend if you have a strong constitution.
Sorry, Simon, I couldn't find any info on it either.
So how do you footnote Buffy Season 5?
Vanity press, maybe?
Hmm I imagine you could reference the dvds... just modify how you would for a movie
This is how apa suggests I do it...
It's listed on U.S. but says:

"Availability: Currently unavailable. We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock."

Snappy title though.
Both Blackwells , who claim 3 to 9 days for dispatch, and WH Smith list the book as having 2 authors.

Anderson is preparing a paper on the "erotic appeal of the inorganic in FutureSex/LoveSounds" by Justin Timberlake).

In any case, let's not stoop to insults. The work - when it is finally read/reviewed - will presumably speak for itself.

The PDF link does work - it just that I didn't see that on the site. Haven't had the chance to look at the iTunes link yet.
I got an e-mail a few days ago from the second author requesting his name be removed from this page and he claims to have nothing to do with the book. He's also upset about what QuoterGal said. Now he's asking for the entire page to be removed and shaking a lawyer stick at us. This is all very tiresome. Do any of you mind if we remove the part of this discussion that mentions him? It's not a particularly important link anyway.
Delete away, Madame C.; please make it go away.
