While this isn't the most comprehensive bibliography for the Buffy The Vampire Slayer to ever hit the internet, it is a fairly complete listing of material concerning the actors and the show that I have collected over the couse of several years. Obviously, these are the publication that have served as my research sources, and are responsible for influencing the content of this site.

ROLE PLAYING GAMES





For those who are interested in Role Playing Games, Eden Studios, Inc. (Eden Studios, 3426 Keystone Avenue #3, Los Angeles, CA 90034) has put a Buffy the Vampire Slayer series. In my opinion, they are a good read even if you aren't into the games themselves. The books may be ordered from the Eden Studios, Inc. website (visit www.btvsrpg.com for information), or through most stores devoted to role playing games. I got mine on-line from Power Star Merchandise (you can find them at www.tvmerch.com, just click on the Buffy logo).

TRADING CARDS





At present, I know of only one American based company that prints collecter trading cards in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series: Inkworks of Raleigh, North Carolina (www.inkwokscards.com). Other countries may have additional sources. I have listed only those card series that I am familiar with, and acknowledge that there may be more out there. I apologize if I've overlooked anyone.


(*NOTE* Inkworks card sets can usually be purchased in either a full set that contains one of each of the main cards and excludes the "special" category cards, or in individual packs filled randomly with 7 cards. The packs can also be bought in boxes of 36 for a total of 252 cards, which is how one acquires the "special cards and Autograph cards, though usually you can find them sold separately at a pricier cost.) Also, special cards are often printed up, and given out to annouce the next upcoming series available. These "promo" cards are plentiful and usually free or nominally priced, but as time goes on, and they become more scarce, their price may go up accordingly.

This set consists of 72 full color main cards featuring Season One. In addition there

are 3 levels of "chase" cards that include 9 puzzle cards, 6 weapons of choice cards,

never printed up as far as I know.

MISCELLANEOUS PRINTED MATERIAL





These books are not about Buffy, it's actors, or creators, but they do deal with supernatural creatures like those that are featured on the television show. I've also included some occult titles and herbology books (perfect for researching Willow's spells!), and various books I've found to be a helpful resource while writing my fanfiction. A short summary explains each listing. I will be adding more books to this list at a later date.
