Firefly only lasted for one season, but it gained enough of a fanbase to garner the status of cult classic. It spawned a movie, Serenity, and you might have seen its actors Nathan Fillion and Morena Baccarin in currently running shows Castle and V, respectively. If you’re a fan (or “Browncoat,” if you prefer) of Joss Whedon’s space western, TVOvermind wants to give you one more reason to love the show: Firefly: Still Flying. The book, published by Titan Books, is an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at the filming of the 2002 series, including recent interviews with the cast about the show, concept art, and something that many fans of the series have been waiting for since 2005: new Firefly fiction.
Short stories are scattered throughout the book, along with an illustrated contribution by Ben Edlund, titled “Fun with Dick and Jayne,” which editor Adam Newell says “is just as crazy as it sounds!”
