THEY GAVE THEIR SOUL FOR ROCK 'N' ROLL.

It's the rock 'n' roll American Dream: start a band, sign a record deal, and go on a national concert tour. But what happens when the dream comes true...and turns into a nightmare? "At Any Cost" uncovers some provocative answers, going behind-the-scenes of a fictional band that's on a rollercoaster ride through rock stardom.

At Any Cost is the story of the rise and fall of a "one hit wonder" singing group. Lance and Mike, a pair of brothers living in Austin, TX, make a bid for the big time by forming a rock band called Beyond Gravity. Lance's wife Chelsea is recruited as the band's bass player, while the brothers' best friend Ben is appointed manager. The group's optimism and idealism is quickly ground down by failed performances, the foot-dragging of the label that signed them, Ben's ruthless and obstreperous business practices, and above all, by Mike's substance abuse. Just when it appears as if the group's fortunes will change, tragedy strikes. At Any Cost was produced for VH-1 as part of that cable channel's "Movies That Rock" series. In an unusual move, the producers created the group Beyond Gravity before the film was made, the better to fit the plot line progression to the group's songs, rather than the other way around. The film's soundtrack (and its subsequent CD) also features the talents of Andreas Johnson, Barenaked Ladies, and Eagle-Eye Cherry. At Any Cost was first broadcast on August 16, 2000.

The Buffy and Angel Yearbook, in stores now, reprints the Fall 1999 interview with Glenn Quinn from the Official Buffy the Vampire Slayer Magazine. So if you missed it the first time, you can get it now! The magazine also features a season one Angel character and episode guide, and lots of great pics of our favourite half-demon.

COMING NOVEMBER 2000! Hollywood Noir: An Angel Guide by Keith Topping:

'Los Angeles. You see it at night and it shines... People are drawn to it. People and other things. They come for all sorts of reasons. My reason? No surprise there. It Started with a girl.'

So begins Angel's new life. He has returned from Hell with his soul intact, but the price he pays is to leave Sunnydale and Buffy Summers behind. He must atone for his past by fighting for humanity and against evil in the dark and seedy underside of the superficially glamorous city of Los Angeles.

Hollywood Vampire focuses on Angel Season one, exploring the world of Angel, Cordelia, Doyle, Wesley and Kate. This episode-by-episode guide encompasses the highlights in categories such as Dreaming (As Buffy often proves) Is Free: The Charisma Show: Dudes and Babes and Sex and Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll. It also spots where logic flies out of the window, and tries to catch all of those never-ending pop culture references.

The Buffy connection is covered in detail, discussing the shared history of Angel and Buffy and charting the instances where characters flit between the two series.

A unique and essential fan bible.

Hollywood Vampire will be available in the UK November, 2000, and should be available in the United States by January, 2001. Reserve your copy today!
