Buffyverse by Jennifer Ouelette (the blogger on Twisted Cocktail Physics)?

Jennifer's book is about the physics of the Buffyverse (unless she wrote another one about biology?). I chose not to include the books that were exclusively about physics, since there are a lot of them.

I do enjoy Jennifer's blog, Cocktail Party Physics, and if that's a fair representation of her writing style, I'm sure her Buffy book is a good one.

I didn't know there was a book about the science behind X-Files. I'm a total X-File nut. I'm going to totally order that book.

The Truth is out there.
