Buffy and the Heroine's Journey. A new book examining the Heroine's journey as represented in BTVS. More good scholarship!

Buffy isn't a heroine. She's a hero.
It's a play on words, electricspacegirl. The Hero's Journey is gender neutral, so I imagine the book will examine it from an overtly feminine perspective.
Interesting in seeing this if I can find an affordable copy. Insufficiently familiar with goddess resurrection myths but Buffy often seems to me the reverse or at least inverse of mythic significance.
"The author of four recent books on popular culture and more than 100 stories and essays, she lives in Sunnyvale, California."

Any closer and she might have to go on her own heroic journey!
