Firefly fans rejoice! Titan Books, in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, have announced that they will be publishing works set in the Firefly universe. Additionally, alongside the books being canon, Joss Whedon has signed on as a consultant!
The first three books and authors have been announced. Here’s what we can expect:
- Nancy Holder’s Firefly: Big Damn Hero (October 2018) – Captain Malcolm Reynolds finds himself in a dangerous situation after being kidnapped by a bunch of embittered veteran Browncoats.
- James Lovegrove’s Firefly: The Magnificent Nine (March 2019) – Jayne receives a distress call from his ex Temperance McCloud that leads the Serenity crew to danger on a desert moon.
- Tim Lebbon’s Firefly: Generations (October 2019) – The discovery of the location of one of the legendary Ark ships that brought humans from Earth-that-was to the ’Verse promises staggering salvage potential, but at what cost? River Tam thinks she might know…
While it’s wishful thinking at this stage there is always the possibility that if the novels are successful that could revitalize talks of continuing the original series.
Will you be picking up any of these? Big Damn Hero seems the most up my alley.
