I'm writing (another) Buffy book! - KRAD's Inaccurate Guide to Life
ramblings from a mad fedora'd writer
I'm writing (another) Buffy book!
Fox has approved my proposal for Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Deathless. This is more traditional Buffy fare, a third-season adventure that involves Ring Day at Sunnydale High School and the arrival of several people from Russian folklore, including Koschei the Deathless and Baba Yaga.

The book is scheduled for spring 2007, and it's what I'll be diving into once Dark Forces is done....

Current Mood: excited excited

Mazl tov!

And also, excellent! I "adore" Baba Yaga.

Congrats. :)

Obviously, with Buffy there's no big post-series series like various Treks have had—all we have is Queen of the Slayers, such as it was. But is there any effort to tie together the books set during the show, or are those all one-shots like we had during the series' run?

HUZZAH! Third was my favorite, so I'll be rushing right out next spring.

And hey, there you go. The entire Whedonverse is tied into the Tommy Westphal brain thing, and you've got access to that license! Go ahead, bring Munch and the other folks from Baltimore into the novel! :-)

Hang on, how's the Buffyverse connected to Tommy's brain? I know how Munch is part of it -- two different St. Elsewhere characters appeared on Homicide -- but how's Sunnydale fit in?

It's all thanks to Morley brand cigarettes!

Congrats KRAD!

You're a cruel man Keith. Blackout still will not be out for several more months so now we have to wait for two buffy novels?

Cruel, I'm telling you, cruel.

Keep up the good work. :)

Hey, I don't schedule the books, I just write 'em. *grin*

Congrats. I love season 3. My favorite part is Buffy/Angel.

I usually am not into books, but I heard about this on Whedonesque and I think I will chack it out when it's published, since I love slavic folklore. Baba Yaga is sooo creepy! Will it have Oh, the Tsar of the Forest as well? And Rusalky?

Ever since I announced this book, all the Russian folklore geeks have just come out of the woodwork... *laughs*

Probably just gonna stick with Koschei and Yaga. Keep in mind, I also need to find room for Buffy, Angel, Xander, Willow, Giles, Oz, Cordelia, Principal Snyder, and possibly also Faith and Wesley. *grin*

Hee! There is a Russian BtVS fanfic where The Immortal turns out to be Koschei the Deathless!
