Threats, Lies, and Surprises in Episodes 1-11
How much fun can you have revisiting the TV series you loved?
More than you ever imagined. And you’ll pick up a few things about storytelling, too.
Bestselling author L. M. Lilly takes apart Episodes 1-11 of Season Two of Joss Whedon’s cult TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She examines key plot turns, character arcs, metaphors, and themes to figure out how Buffy created:
- Stories that break your heart and make you long for more;
- Characters who grow in surprising yet believable ways;
- Dialogue that’s cleverer and more fun than any in the real world; and
- Universal themes that somehow speak directly to you.
If you love Buffy, and you love creating stories – or just taking them apart to see how they work – this book is for you.
Based on the internationally-popular podcast Buffy and the Art of Story.
L. M. Lilly is the author of numerous books and articles on writing craft and, as Lisa M. Lilly, writes horror, mysteries, and supernatural thrillers. For more about the author of Buffy and the Art of Story Season One check out the About page.
