I Made a Thing!

cw_153_350So happy to have my piece “Love At Stake” published in June’s issue of Clarkesworld Magazine! You can find it here!

This essay originated as a longer piece for Harlequin Pop!. Harlequin Publishing wanted to try a new imprint of short books/long essays about pop culture. They accepted my (very short) book Pride, Prejudice, and Popcorn: TV and Film Adaptations of Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, and Jane Eyrewhich is currently available as an eBook. They also accepted Love at Stake: Romance in Buffy the Vampire Slayer – but by publishing time, they discontinued the imprint.

When Clarkesworld needed a nonfiction piece with short notice, I remembered that poor Buffy was languishing on my desktop and polished it off. What you see in this magazine is essentially a summary of the longer piece, discussing the importance of relationships in Buffy and how these relationships reinforce the themes of the seasons in which they appear. Enjoy!
