Overview

“Supernatural” is more than a show about fighting demons. It’s about more than a cool car, a kick-ass soundtrack and hot guys with guns. “Supernatural” is about family and sacrifice and heroism—about good and evil and the choices you make to stay in the hunt. You know there’s more to this show than meets the eye. So do we.

* Professor Gregory Stevenson considers the true meaning of horror and what “Supernatural's” characters have to say about the human (and demonic) potential in all of us Super-Wiki team member
* Jules Wilkinson gives Dean’s ’67 Chevy Impala her due
* Television Without Pity’s Jacob Clifton looks at the feminine in “Supernatural's” world of shotguns, muscle cars and masculine bravado (it’s more influential, and more pervasive, than you think)
* “Supernatural” RPG writer Jamie Chambers outlines demon-hunting on the cheap—and what it has to do with “Supernatural's” appeal
* Contemporary fantasy author Tanya Huff delves into the psychology of John Winchester
* Fan Sheryl A. Rakowski (one of the three winners of the Supernatural.tv/Smart Pop “Supernatural” Essay Contest) shows how the boys’ biggest weakness—their need for each other—is also the biggest strength they possess, no matter what the Trickster says
* Writer Shanna Swendson mines the sources of “Supernatural's” monsters, from folktales to urban legends, and deems Dean and Sam our modern-day keepers of the lore

    A Treat for Fans of the CW's "Supernatural" created by Erik Kripke and staring Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki

    Oh such fun! It may be an unauthorized collection of essays, but I believe this is a must read for any fan of the CW's series "Supernatural." It contains short stories from everyday fans and scholars.

    The stories are about Sam, Dean, John, and even Metalicar! Fun, insightful and thought provoking - a "great ride" in every sense of the word.

    I also enjoyed all three of the standalone books: Nevermore, Witch's Canyon, and Bone Key; as well as the Official Season Companions.
