I really like the phrase "feminist fannish collective." I've been trying to think of a way to describe this book series. :-)

It was fun watching different friends getting excited because they're in the same anthology as their peeps.
I bet these folks didn't know that Joanna Russ is a HUGE Buffy fan, and would probably have loved to write an essay about it. Doesn't matter, though. I think I'll order a copy when it comes out and send it to her, because she'd really enjoy it.
Aw man. I wish I'd thought to suggest her.
Ooooh, *want!!*
Hm, I almost wish I had Jennifer Ouelette's address, so I could buy one and send to her (she has written, among other things, The Physics of the Buffyverse).
