Eagle-eyed Browncoats have noticed a new listing at Amazon: a third Firefly Companion book from Titan Books, due out next March. What will this one cover?
No idea. Titan hasn’t released details yet, other than the official title (“Firefly: Still Flying – A Celebration of Joss Whedon’s Acclaimed TV Series”) and that it will be the same format — full color, 160 pages — as their previous Firefly and Serenity Companions.
And that means you should preorder it right away. Titan’s series remains the single best companions to the ‘verse that have been produced, with scripts, interviews with the cast and crew, production drawings, close ups of props, and never-before-seen-pictures, which was damn impressive considering how voraciously Browncoats hunted those out.
Although it does beg the question, what could it be about? The comics? The fans? “Can’t Stop the Serenity”? The various books of essays? The licensed products from QMx? A look back? Firefly’s influence on other shows? More stuff from the show that didn’t fit into the previous books? Tell me it contains, say, the next three unproduced scripts in the series and I’ll buy it right now.
More details as I get ’em, but be aware it’s out there and coming. And if you haven’t seen Titan’s Firefly: The Official Companion 1, Firefly: The Official Companion 2, or the Serenity Visual Companion, go get them immediately.
