Another Buffy book coming out next year. It is titled "Go Ask Malice : A Slayer's Diary" and is due out in June 2006, written by Robert Levy. Also due out next year is "Blackout" due in August 2006 by krad.

I hope this Slayer isn't ten feet tall.
I'm intrigued, because the title of this sounds extremely weird.
There is a well known and fairly controversial teen book called "Go Ask Alice". I'm assuming this is a play on that.
Too many references to pick one at this point: Simon notes the Jefferson Airplane connection. "Malice in Blunderland", used numerous times for political satire. Or maybe just a straight callback to Lewis Carroll himself.

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall

Simon, I congratulate you for one brilliant pop culture reference. I love that song, but until MissKittysMom pointed it out, I was scratching my head as to what you were talking about.

Ah, another reason I love you Whedonesquers: You consistently make me feel less smart. In a good way.

We are also much cheaper and more healthy than booze. (And probably just as surreal inducing).
...and I always thought the name of the book was referencing the song referencing the classic book...
BTW, I've posted the cover to Blackout on my LiveJournal, if anyone's interested.....
krad - Thanks for that. I always find the cover one of the exciting things about a new BtVs book coming out and then it becomes frustrating because Amazon doesn't have it yet (and Simon and Schuster's site doesnt even mention Blackout at all!)
