Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A lot has happened since Finding Serenity. We learned Rivers secret; Mal took on the Alliance. Our favorite crew became Big Damn Heroes. And the Browncoats proved that hard work, passion and a little fan coordination can do the impossible. Serenity Found takes the contents of Finding Serenity even further, exploring not just the show but the events of the film as well, to create an anthology thats even more thought-provoking, fascinating and far-thinking than its predecessor.

* Acclaimed science fiction author Orson Scott Card lauds “Serenity” as film sci-fi finally done right

* Writer and comedian Natalie Haynes reveals the real feminist savvy of the “Firefly” universe: the girls get the guns and the gags

* Pop culture critic Michael Marano connects damaged, ass-kicking River to the other weaponized women of the Whedonverse

* Multiverse executive producer Corey Bridges explains why the world of “Firefly” is the perfect setting for an MMORPG

* Mutant Enemys visual effects wizard Loni Peristere relates what hes learned from Joss about telling stories, and tells a story of his own about Serenitys design

* Television Without Pity recapper Jacob Clifton frames “Serenity” as a parable about media: how it controls us, how we can control it and how to separate the signal from the noise

* And Nathan Fillion, “Firefly” and “Serenitys” Captain Malcolm Reynolds, shares his affinity for Mal and his love of Mals ship and crew.

Synopsis:

This follow-up to Finding Serenity takes the examination of Joss Whedon's canceled cult favorite even further, addressing the events of the film Serenity as well as offering even more thought-provoking, fascinating, and far-thinking essays on the Firefly universe. Contributors include actor Nathan Fillion, who played Captain Mal Reynolds, as well as noted science fiction writer Orson Scott Card. Behind-the-scenes details are explored, including why Firefly makes such a good platform for the upcoming Multiverse online game (with an essay written by Multiverse executive producer Corey Bridges), while other essays examine recurring issues from both the series and the movie, such as the Alliance's hatred of science, the role of smart-mouthed women, and the real reason the Firefly universe has no aliens.
