** COMPLETELY UNAUTHORIZED ** 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.

Spotty but almost entirely enjoyable. My favorite essay was Joy Davidson's 'Whores and Goddesses'. Lots of information here, and some amazing analysis of one of my favorite shows ever. If you loved the program and are still sulking about its untimely cancellation, read this book. Consulter l'avis complet
