I picked up this book mostly for the essay on fanworks and Wincest. That essay was absolutely brilliant, although it could have been longer, and several of the other essays were equally well-written and interesting. A couple of the essays were confusing, including the one that had so many parentheses. The one from the point of view of hypothetical monsters watching Supernatural was really kind of awkward for some reason. There are also a good portion of these essays that have been made incorrect or obsolete in regards to the current show. A reader thinking back to only the first three seasons will find themselves agreeing with much that is said. I, for one, hope that they come out with another set of essays, at least some with similar themes or subjects, that account for the canon information given in seasons 4 and 5.

Bcoghill Coghill So much has happened since season 3. It would be nice, someday when the series ends to have a similar set of essays.
