Who Are You and Why Are You Doing This?

Welcome Back to the Hellmouth is a slightly bananas idea I had to rewatch (for the third or fourth or fifth or seventeenth time, episode depending) Buffy the Vampire Slayer — exactly 20 years after each episode’s original airdate.

Yes, that means this will take seven years. Yes, I’m bound to screw up and not always watch each episode on exactly the right date. But it’s a fun goal and a long project and I am intrigued by both of those things.

As for me, hi, I’m Molly. By day I work at Tor.com; by night I read, watch every SFF-ish TV show I can make time for, write movie reviews for the Eugene Weekly (where I spent several years as the arts and music editor), make cocktails, and sometimes venture out into the wilds of Brooklyn.

I grew up in small-town Oregon but have spent most of my adult life in New York (apart from that time in Eugene and the time I ran away to Australia. Dear Australia: Please take me back). I’ve spent all my time here in books, from my first job in kids’ books at Penguin to three years as a bookseller. Now, at Tor.com, I get to joke that I am a professional nerd. This brings me a perhaps disproportionate sense of glee.
