Welcome to the Weird and Wonderful World of the Buffyverse

The Buffyverse is an undeniably bizarre place -- a world where the melding of magic and science is a defining feature, and mystical convergences and otherworldly phenomena are everyday occurrences. Through examples from the hit TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off Angel -- and the vampires, demons, witches and interdimensional portals therein -- acclaimed science writer Jennifer Ouellette explains complicated principles of biology, chemistry, and theoretical physics. From electricity, conservation of energy, and special relativity to wormholes, black holes, and string theory, The Physics of the Buffyverse provides a serious shot of science for those who prefer their physics with a pop-culture chaser.
