The blurb says,

The book includes a detailed timeline of events, in-depth character studies from Badger to Zoe, a guide to the science of the show, and sections of script with accompanying notes from the author. Alongside all of this are countless images of the characters, ships, weapons, props and sets. This is a must-have item for all fans of the 'Verse."

Thoughts ????? Especially on the "Encyclopedia"???

Three books on the Verse, awesome news. It is about time, and I want the Serenity Handbook.

I'm both excited and filled with dread at the same time. If I open that travel book and find Ransom re-written I'll puke blood.

I'm with YJ on this one: If I see Ransom in these titles, I'll be seeing red too. Hell, if I see the fic *I* wrote (and had posted online at one point, now taken down), I'll be puking up nastiness of my own.

Of course, if this paves the way for fan-written anthologies, published all nice and legal, that's different. For one: us fans would be involved in it and compensated by royalties or at least a flat fee for the work published.

It's early days, yet, and for this sort of thing to be successful, it needs sales to encourage more of this sort of thing. It's hard to tell at this point if the material on offer is something we want to encourage. The preview images are pretty skimpy.

Nevertheless, I've got all four titles in my wishlist:
Big Damn Heroes (novel)
Serenity Handbook (blueprints/ship plans)
Hidden Universe Travel Guide
Firefly Encyclopedia (I hope the cover isn't finalized--their Photoshoppery needs work.)

True, one can't always post as much as one would like. The nice thing about the internet as a platform is it never really closes. I could make a bazillion posts while y'all are sleepin' and there ain't no power in the Verse can stop me. Bwahahah! (Yes, mine is an evil laugh ... )

Of course, I wouldn't be that evil.

Probably.

Maybe.
