Romantic Times Award winning author Jacqueline Lichtenberg brings many credentials to the discussion of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. She is the primary author of Star Trek Lives!, the Bantam paperback that revealed the existence of Star Trek fandom and its fanzines and touched off the explosion of fannish involvement in the television show. Star Trek Lives! presents her theory of why fans love Star Trek so much that they write stories about it. Her first published novel, House of Zeor, the first novel published in the legendary Sime~Gen Universe has proved her theory has merit. In addition to her series of vampire short stories, she has a Vampire Romance published by BenBella Books titled Those of My Blood. She has two occult/sf novels in print, titled Molt Brother and City of a Million Legends. Topping off her qualifications to discuss Willow's use of Magic is her more than 25 years as a Tarot and Astrology practitioner and teacher. She has been the sf/f reviewer for the Occult/New Age publication The Monthly Aspectarian for 10 years. www.simegen.com/jl/  will provide details.


"The Power Of Becoming" is an extensively footnoted, five thousand word article that may show you some things about the character of Willow that you hadn't noticed before and places the show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer into the context of the development of television as part of the fiction delivery system.  

Contrasting and comparing Buffy and Willow, and examining where the show fits into the development of television drama, Jacqueline Lichtenberg reveals the importance of this television show in the evolution of the fiction delivery system.  

You will also find a discussion of Buffy as Intimate Adventure  (Intimate Adventure -- p.22 Publisher's Weekly, November 10, 1989).  

This essay is in a trade paperback volume of articles on Buffy by sf/f authors who are fans of the show.  You will find it listed on the Ben Bella Books website in the fall of 2003, or you will hear about it on both the lifeforce-l newsletter or the Ben Bella Books newsletter.  

Jacqueline Lichtenberg also has a very abbreviated and condensed article in Five Seasons of Angel titled "Victim Triumphant".  The entire originally submitted article is now posted.
