A relative newcomer to the paranormal-teen drama scene, the hit TV show Supernatural has already developed a rabid and deeply committed fan base since its debut in the fall of 2005. When their dad mysteriously disappears, brothers Dean and Sam Winchester join forces to bring him home and are pulled headlong into the world he knew best—one full of demons, spirits, monsters, and ghouls. Featuring essays from three lucky fans as well as leading writers and pop culture experts, this insightful anthology sheds light on a variety of issues, including why such a male-centric show has such a large female fan base, “Wincest” and homoeroticism, how Supernatural can be interpreted as a modern-day Brothers Grimm, and the questionable nature of John Winchester’s parenting habits.

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.

interesting series of essays regarding the series. curious that this was written prior to the fourth series, so some essays make some interesting points which are now either proven incorrect (but still worth reading) or spookily prescient.
