Finding Serenity

Anti-heroes, Lost Shepherds and Space Hookers in Joss Whedon's Firefly

Edited by Jane Espenson

Firefly’s 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 philosopher’s perspective on “Objects in Space” to a sex therapist’s analysis of Inara, Finding Serenity is filled with writing as exciting, funny and enthralling as the show itself.

Finding Serenity includes:

  • Mercedes Lackey on the nature of freedom in “Firefly”
  • Roxanne Longstreet Conrad on how the crew of Serenity could kick the Enterprise crew’s butts any day
  • Leigh Adams Wright on the fate of the ’verse’s Chinese people
  • Tanya Huff on Zoe as the ultimate warrior woman
  • Michelle Sagara West on television finally getting marriage right
  • Kevin M. Sullivan’s unofficial glossary of “Firefly” Chinese
  • And Jewel Staite (“Kaylee”) offers a behind-the-scenes insider look and talks about her favorite episodes

Other contributors include: Ginjer Buchanan, Joy Davidson, Don Debrandt, Keith R.A. DeCandido, Larry Dixon, David Gerrold, Jennifer Goltz, Nancy Holder, Robert B. Taylor, John C. Wright, Lyle Zynda
