Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this eclectic anthology of essays, former cast member Jewel Staite ("Kaylee"), philosopher Lyle Zynda, sex therapist Joy Davidson, and noted science fiction and fantasy authors Mercedes Lackey, David Gerrold, and Lawrence Watt-Evans contribute to a clever and insightful analysis of the short-lived cult hit Firefly. From What went wrong with the pilot? to What's right about Reavers? and how the correspondence between the show's creator Joss Whedon and the network executives might have actually played out, the writers interrogate the show's complexity and speculate about what might have been if the show Firefly had not been cancelled.

Synopsis:

Fireflys early demise left fans with a deep sense of loss and plenty of unanswered questions. From what was wrong with the pilot to what was right with the Reavers, from the use of Chinese to how correspondence between Joss and network executives might have gone, from a philosophers perspective on “Objects in Space” to a sex therapists analysis of Inara, Finding Serenity is filled with writing as exciting, funny and enthralling as the show itself.

Another excellent collection of essays from Smart Pop! This collection of essays span a huge range of subjects from hilarious parody to deep philosophical ponderings. Some of these essays explored ideas that I'd had myself (though much more coherently!) and other essays I vehemently disagreed with. Either way, they made me think. And best of all, they reminded me just how much I love this 'verse!

Anti-Heroes, Lost Shepherds and Space Hookers. That little blurb on the front cover of "Finding Serenity" by Editors Glenn Yeffeth and Jane Eperson, says it all. For a dyed-in-the-wool fan of the televison series this book just continues the enjoyment, albeit in a semi serious and technical way. This collection of essays offers interesting and informative insights into the people, mores and situations of our newest, favourite 'verse. I can barely wait for the sequel to hit the shelves!
