Finding Serenity

Me acaba de llegar el libro Finding Serenity, bueno, más bien me llego por los pelos. Me confundí en las opciones de envío y le dije a la tienda que me lo enviasen a la dirección de mi casa en vez del trabajo. Es que tengo un cartero que no me lo merezco, nos mete correo de otros edificios en nuestro buzón para que podamos cotillear sobre las cartas que le envían a otras personas. El único problema es que, claro, nuestras cartas también pueden quedar en el buzón de otra gente, con “suerte” esa gente puede ser de nuestro mismo edificio. Con mi libro pasó eso, estaba en el buzón del vecino. A favor del cartero hay que decir que casi acierta, era el buzón que estaba justo al lado del nuestro.

Finding Serenity

El libro esta editado por Jane Espenson, guionista de Firefly. En el libro, Jane, recopila varios artículos de diversas personas con su punto de vista sobre la serie. De la contraportada:

“You take people,

you put them on a journey

you give them peril,

you find out who they really are.

If there’s any kind of fiction better than that, I don’t know what it is.”

– Joss Whedon

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 but 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.

Jane Espenson is the screenwriter for the acclaimed Firefly episode “Shinding”. She was a Buffy the Vampire Slayer writer for five years, where her credits included “Band Candy”, “Earshot”, “Superstar” and “Conversations with Dead People”. She has also written for Angel, Deep Space Nine, Ellen, Gilmore Girls, Tru Calling and Star Trek. Currently, Espenson has a development deal with 20th Century Fox Productions, allowing her to write pilots and design a show of her own. She lives in Los Angeles.
