Be More Buffy: A Guide to Slaying Each Day is a reference book on Buffy Studies. Written by Alex Clark-Groom and illustrated by YoungEarlGrey, it will be published by Smith Street Books on May 19, 2020.
This book celebrates Emmy-award-winning TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and more specifically its leading vampiric lady Buffy Summers — offering a practical guide for how you, like Buffy, might best slay. From super-fan Alex Clarke-Groom, this book is a deep dive into Buffy's unparalleled mind. Who better to turn to for inspiration than the Chosen One, when you need a little help to slay? When life gives you Big Bads and (literal) demon boyfriends, Buffy has always got your back.
Full of advice on ass-kicking your way through the day, empowering quotes and guides for getting through the sometimes-Hellmouth that is life, Be More Buffy tells you how to tap in to The Slayer's resilience, optimism and all round badass-ery. As well as an earnest slay guide, this fun book also taps into the super-fandom surrounding Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which is still recognised now — nearly two decades after the end of its hugely successful seven season run — as a brilliantly written and produced work of screen.
So what the Hellmouth are you waiting for? Pick up this superhuman guide to slaying, right now.
