"The Cordelia Collection, Volume 1" is a novelization anthology of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer novels series. It was written by Nancy E. Krulik, and based on teleplays by Ashley Gable, Thomas A. Swyden, Ty King, and David Greenwalt.


“Being popular is not just my right, but my responsibility, and I want you to know that I take it very seriously.” — Cordelia Chase

Fashionista and leader of the pack, Cordelia Chase is known throughout Sunnydale High for her irrepressible blend of tactless maxims as much as she is renowned for her beauty. Most students — even the members of her anti-fan club — either want her or want to “be” her.

Popularity proves a tough cross to bear, though: First, Cordy is stalked by an invisible being fueled by envy, and later she is deemed an ideal mate for a onetime Sunnydale football star — problem is, he's currently deceased. But her most dangerous challenge is the race for Homecoming Queen. Forget the dance — Queen C will be lucky to escape with her life!


"The Cordelia Collection" is a novelization of three Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes:
