Ok, if we can't have a Firefly Movie anytime soon, how about some novels? Star Trek, Star Wars, X-files, all
have stand alone stories in book form. How about
continuing stories through words? No offense to the
fan fic stories here, but maybe JW could "finish" season
one with a book series. He's probably already got
outlines of the seasons remaining episodes if Fox
had of continued it.

Sounds good to me. They just need to strike a deal with a publishing company.

Well I would buy them!

And, if I ever get myself an agent and a publishing deal, I'd love to write them!

Book: “A duel?”
Wash: “With swords?”
Simon: “The Captain's a good fighter, he must know how to handle a sword?”
Zoe: “I think he knows which end to hold.”

Comics, I say!

Joss has already shown his love for the medium and his willingness to work in it.

Besides, I want to see those guys and the ship again.

And who says we can't have it both ways? Name a genre and there's all manner of printed media.

Writing is easy, people - all you have to do is stare at a blank piece of paper until blood forms on your forehead. Getting published - and I'm talking top-end media, not Internet fan fic publishing which is WAY more forgiving - THAT is hard.

LoL

Heck, the DVD set was just released shortly before this thread was posted.

I do wish there had been some novels published.
We even had some promised when Serenity came out.

Steven Brust (a proper published author) wrote a Firefly novel back when Pocket Books were asking for pitches and when it was neither approved nor disapproved, published it online. You can find a link here:

The Joss Whedon script for Serenity, where Wash lives, is Serenity-190pages.pdf at www.mediafire.com/folder/1uwh75oa407q8/Firefly


Two finished novels by Kevin Bell are at www.harriersandheroes.ca/firefly.htm

In the years since the demise of our favourite program, there have been several graphic novels penned Whedon and his people in an effort to keep the Firefly burning. And there is a massive base of fan-fiction on the Internet as well --- some of it very good, others . . . well, I'll let you decide for yourself. But what they all share in common is a love and admiration for the characters and the 'Verse that Joss Whedon created. And so, like so many others before me, I have decided to write me own continuation of the Firefly tale.

Set not long after the events of Serenity, my saga is intended to expand not only the future of the 'Verse as we have come to know it, but to fill in some of the background as well.

Yeah, thanks for posting those links! Meanwhile, there are numerous fanfics right here in the Blue Sun Room that are well worthy of being published. Anyone know of a thread with fanfic recommendations? (Especially completed novel-length fanfics worthy of publication.)

There's a majorly long fanfic recommendation thread around here, though eventually it devolved into authors shilling their own work. People were actually making sockpuppets to do so... All a rather sordid tale really.

Actually, your best bet is probably the fanfic recommendation tab on the firefly article on tvtropes - it includes the universally recommended ones like ScrewTheAlliance and Mal4Prez. The only possible problem people might have with it is the recommendations ARE a little skewed towards weird cross-overs, which don't necessarily have as broad a general appeal as reccers might think. Also, not as much Mal/Inara as I'd like, but I guess that's pretty much going to be the case everywhere.

There were Firefly novels planned. Sadly, Joss let the permissions, etc lapse.

Keith R A DeCandido has said his was going to be about a return to Canton.

Jim Swallow said that his would have been about Mal and co encountering a dark, embittered version of themselves in another crew.

Terri Osborne was due to write one.

There was a fourth novelist lined up who I think might have been Jose Molina, but don't quote me on that.

Im guessing, and this is just a guess, mind - that Joss didn't really want them written.

I know he was rather displeased with most of the Buffy novels, and said at the time that very few outside of his writing staff could capture the "voice" of the show to his satisfaction.

I wouldn't be surprised in the least if that had something to do with it.

I would be fine with the writing staff doing novels, or even novelettes. Or writing in script form that could be converted into a novelette form by a fiction writer that could add setting descriptions, etc. I think that would be amazing, actually.


Facts are stubborn things.
