Fab 5 Buffy the Vampire Slayer Contest Results

Dear Fab Buffy Fans!

Glory be!  There were so many entries for our Fab 5 Buffy the Vampire Slayer Contest that we had to enlist the support of the Initiative, Moloch (yes!), and Spike’s poker buddies to count them!  Thank you so very, very much for your interest and enthusiasm.  From these multitudes, five names were picked at random as the winners of Buffy the Vampire Slayer 3. But wait, there’s more!

Each of those five will also receive a copy of Crusade, the first book in a trilogy about a band of vampire hunters who live in Salamanca, Spain, after the vampires declared war on humanity…and humanity lost.  Enjoy!

And to those of you who did not, win, please stay tuned. More contests are coming your way.  We are also running a new contest for Buffy the Vampire Slayer 2 via GoodReads! Also, please enjoyBlood Gothic,” a FREE vampire short story by Nancy–the first short story she ever sold, in fact!

Without further ado, here are your favorite 5 Buffy the Vampire Slayer episodes, by a WIDE margin:

  1. Once More, With Feeling
  2. Hush
  3. The Body
  4. The Gift
  5. Chosen

The runners up:

  • Tabula Rasa
  • Doppelgangland
  • Becoming, Part 2
  • Restless
  • Passion

And here are Nancy’s favorites , with a disclaimer that was just as difficult for her as it was for many of you to pick only 5 episodes!  She also wants to thank you very much for your many notes of support.

Nancy’s Fab Five:

  1. Hush
  2. Passion
  3. Becoming, Part 2
  4. The Body
  5. Chosen

We are emailing the contest results to all of you, but please note that we will delete your email addresses from our files as soon as this mass email goes out.  We’d love it if you’d take the time to click here and subscribe to our newsletter, which contains newsletter-only content and contests with every issue.

If you’re in Los Angeles this weekend, please join Nancy on Saturday at Gallifrey One: Catch 22, the largest fan-run Dr. Who convention in North America.  Nancy will appear on panels with Jane Espenson, Jose Molina, and the editors and fellow writers of Whedonistas: A Celebration of the Worlds of Joss Whedom by the Women Who Love Them.
