    1. Note, April 16, 2016: I've just edited this review to correct a factual error which I discovered had crept in due to my relative unfamiliarity with the series.I saw and liked the movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which inspired the TV series of the same name; and while I was never a hardcore fan of the series (I don't watch enough TV to be a hardcore fan of anything!), when it was syndicated in this area several years ago I used to watch scattered episodes whenever I could, and mostly liked what I [...]

    2. This is an entertaining collection of short stories that, as the title suggests, was supposed to show us what the Buffy/Scooby Gang did during the Summer after the Master was eliminated. There are six stories,and as the cover shows six characters, I assumed that each person would get one story.Not so. In fact Cordelia gets nothing. After Buffy goes to LA to stay with her Dad, a couple of the stories tied together, and than that stopped. I think that this collection could have been handled in a b [...]

    3. This is a short story collection about the summer in between seasons 1 and 2 of Buffy. During this summer (according to the book) Buffy went to Los Angeles with her dad for a few months while Angel, Jenny, Giles, Xander and Willow are left behind to keep Sunnydale safe. The book benefits from having the framing device and all the stories take place in chronological order, although compared to the Tales of the Slayer short story collections, this book lacks a real stand out great story. Here's wh [...]

    4. How I survived My Summer Vacation by Nancy Holder takes the reader into depth of every hard core Buffy Fan. This story was based off of the imagination of this amazing author on what happens between season 1 and 2 of the hit TV series. Buffy Summers is taking a break from all of the walking demons and vamps' for a while to enjoy some sunny days with her father in LA. But duty always calls for the scooby gang. After the recent death of "The Master", his followers and the anointed one have to figu [...]

    5. A nice collection of short stories inspired by the TV Series and set between the 1st and 2nd season.Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to rea [...]

    6. I have to say this is one of my more favorite novels of the Buffyverse. It's set in the time frame between season one and two, when all the characters are on summer vacation. Buffy is in L.A. with her dad throughout the story. Then it also switches back to Sunnydale and deals with the Scoobies side of their summer, including Angel too.It's defiantly a book for those that want those gaps filled in that wasn't fully explained in the show about what really happened to everyone once the Master was k [...]

    7. Not enough storyline for full episodes? Good to get some background on Buffy and her Dad, with these short stories, some were almost too short.

    8. writing isn't mesmerizing, but damn it takes me back. the dialogue is pure Buffy/Whedon. definitely a Buffy fandom keepsake.

    9. This was not really based on any true episodes, so we're left at the mercy of crappy authors who pretend to know something about the characters.
