Firefly continuing through a new book of short stories


Sci Fi Wire reports: Joss Whedon's world of Firefly and Serenity has passed it's time, but fans are still looking for more adventures. This demand is enough for Jane Espenson, who wrote one of Firefly's original TV episodes (Shindig), to contribute to a book that continues the story of the Serenity crew.

Jane Espenson's story will be centering on the characters of Kaylee and Wash (obviously set in a time period before the events of the movie Serenity).

"I'm writing a short story set in the Firefly universe that someone's putting together," Espenson said in an interview on Sunday in Pasadena, Calif., where she was promoting her upcoming Syfy series Caprica. "Titan Books is putting together a collection written by various of the Firefly writers. But [it's a] very short story, ... 2,000 words."
She added: "Oh, I just came up with a very clever little short story that involves Kaylee and Wash, two characters that we haven't seen together that much."

I'm pretty excited, although I've never been much of a fan personally for fan-fic. I know a lot of the Firefly/Serenity fans will eat this up though!
