Some of us really do watch for the plot: a collection of Supernatural essays
edited by Jules Wilkinson and Andie Masino


This is eclectic collection is the first, official or unofficial, to explore the characters and world of Supernatural.

Sam and Dean’s psychology, emotional lives and even fashion sense are analyzed, the dynamics of the Winchester family explored and the reasons why there is not more fraternal hugging is seriously considered. We get insights into supporting characters such as Bobby and Jo and, of course, the beloved Impala.

The mythos of the show — from the Hero’s path to the genetics of demons — is examined, while other writers take an overview of themes in Supernatural such as free will and faith.

The writers bring a variety of opinions and philosophies to their critiques of Supernatural. You will agree enthusiastically with some, while others will have you hurling this book across the room! Many will have you rushing to re-watch episodes with newfound insight.

This book is a testament to Supernatural and everyone who works to create and produce the series. We love taking this trip through truck stop American for the scares and the thrills, the rockin’ music and the urban legends, and of course the hot Winchester boys and their bitchin’ ride. And some of us really do watch for the plot!
