Firefly tales in print

Firefly to live on in new book of short stories


Joss Whedon's beloved Firefly/Serenity is long gone, but you can't stop the signal: Fans can look for more adventures of Capt. Mal Reynolds and the crew of the doughty ship in a series of short stories coming soon from Titan Books.

Writer/producer Jane Espenson—who wrote one episode of the Fox sci-fi series but is a longtime friend and colleague of Whedon's going back to her days on Buffy the Vampire Slayer—told us that she will be writing one of the stories, centering on the characters of Kaylee and Wash (obviously set in a time period before the events of the movie Serenity).

Personally, I'm still waiting on the comic book that covers Book's backstory that Joss promised years ago...

Well, maybe he'll have more time now that Dollhouse has been cancelled. :/

I do still think we've already gotten a large chunk of Book's backstory in Serenity, given what I read about it prior to release.

Boyd's death reminded me of Wash's (and the warrior woman left behind). I have to wonder if Tahmoh and Alan bonded backstage after reading the script, to the effect of, "Yeah, yeah, your turn this time." ;)

LOL! there's a great deleted scene on the dvd where Alan forgets his lines and you can just see the effort he makes not to yell "SUMMMMMER!" :))

i can imagine some of the potential bonding banter.
Tahmoh "Gotta fight scene coming up."
Alan "Huh, ok, never mind..."
Tahmoh "What?"
Alan "Just... Joss likes Canadian guys..."
Tahmoh "yeah."
Alan "He like them bloody and full of pain."
Tahmoh, "oh."

Hee! Well-conceived -- if it didn't happen, it certainly could've!

I hope Joss gets together with a cable network that is supportive, has a brilliant idea where he casts many of the people with whom he's worked before, they're magically available and ... I can dream, can't I? ;)

This could be the beginning of a bee-you-ti-ful fandom friendship. :)

I heard that there was going to be a Book graphic novel in this Ain't It Cool interview with Ron Glass, but hadn't heard anything about Wash ... well, I heard Alan mention something, but I thought he was joking. I'd love to see any links you've got! Thanks for sharing 'em. :)
