Oooh, free stuff!

3 Aug

“In January 2008 the Duke University Press will publish “Undead TV: Essays on Buffy the Vampire Slayer” edited by Elana Levine and Lisa Parks. The collection of essays come from media studies scholars, who tackle the Buffy phenomenon and its many afterlives in popular culture, the television industry, the Internet, and academic criticism. The writers engage with Sarah Michelle Gellar’s celebrity image, science-fiction fanzines, international and youth audiences, Buffy pulp fiction, and Angel’s body, showing how this primetime drama became a blockbuster that stands out from much entertainment television by offering sharp, provocative commentaries on gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, and youth.

Recognizing that you run a Buffy fansite devoted to philosophical studies, we are very excited to offer you the chance to receive a free advance copy of this upcoming book. Please email me your current mailing address, and I will send a copy of “Undead TV” your way promptly.”

    Jealous now. All I ever get is endless free copies of jockey biographies and insipid horse movies. And that of course. *glares at tedious book poorly translated from 18th century French that she was supposed to read months ago*

    The thing, I probably won’t ever read it. It’ll just sit looking pretty on my shelf.
