The Buffy Library - An International Annotated Bibliography
The success of Buffy has generated a growing literature. While guides to the TV shows are useful, original novels have created a whole new mythology. In fact, the relationship between the Buffy world and esoteric lore appears to be still more developed in some novels than in the TV show; hence, their special interest for the vampire scholar and for The Dracula Library, a resource for studies on vampires, religion and culture on the Web site of CESNUR (the Center for Studies on New Religions).

This bibliography includes only book-length treatments. Single comic books are not included, while comic trade paperbacks are. Shooting scripts, shooting drafts and other private items are not included, although some of them are collected in The Dracula Library.
