Angel, the spin-off of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, never attained the popularity of its parent show but was every bit as beloved by its die-hard fans. Similar to The Seven Seasons of Buffy [BKL S 1 03], this book gathers essays about Angel and its characters by popular sf and fantasy writers such as Peter S. Beagle, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, and Nancy Holder. In "That Angel Doesn't Live Here Anymore," Laura Resnick writes about how different the brooding vampire was on Angel compared to the romantic ideal he was on Buffy (which was, of course, before he went evil). Chief Lighting Technician Dan Kearns gives fans some behind-the-scenes info in his essay, while Roxanne Longstreet Conrad offers a humorous guide to the evil law firm, Wolfram & Hart. Several essayists celebrate such individual characters as Lorne, the genial green demon; Doyle, the noble half-demon; and Lindsay, the sexy lawyer who skirted the line between good and evil. This intelligent, wide-ranging collection is a must read for any fan who still misses Angel and his comrades. Kristine Huntley
