Paper Cuts - How I Survived My Summer Vacation
A big ol' trip down memory lane this one was. It fills in the events between the end of season one and the start of season 2. An anthology that continues the same story line makes for an easy read. I barely noticed that there were six authors for this book. The characters back then were still simple enough that it would be hard to go wrong.
Only 2 out of the 6 stories centred around the Slayer. The others were about Giles, Angel, Willow, Xander and Jenny Calendar's struggle to survive the holidays. Dealing with Absoloms arrival in SunnyD, the attempts to resurrect The Master, the gang burying The Master's bones, a shapeshifter, an army of zombies, a Bruja in LA, and an evil stage crew made for varied reading.
By the way, just because theatre staff don't go out in the sun doesn't mean they are vamps. OK!
We aren't all pale, sun-avoiding, athletic super-villains.
But we try.
