Reseña del editor
NEW STORIES. UNSEEN PHOTOS. SHINY. We have done the impossible, and that makes us mighty.A" Since its short-lived appearance on TV in 2002, Joss Whedon's Firefly has indeed done the impossible. It's sold over a half a million copies on DVD, spawned the hit movie Serenity, and most remarkably, inspired a loyal fan following - the Browncoats - whose numbers are still growing to this day. Still Flying is a brand new celebration of all aspects of the show, featuring a wealth of rare and previously unpublished images - including storyboards, production design art and candid behind the scenes photos - memories from the cast and crew, a tribute to the Browncoats, and, as a special bonus: EXCLUSIVE NEW FIREFLY FICTION BY WRITERS OF THE ORIGINAL TV EPISODES FUN WITH DICK AND JAYNE written and drawn by Ben Edlund WHAT HOLDS US DOWN by Jane Espenson CRYSTAL by Brett Matthews TAKE THE SKY by Jose MolinaVer Descripción del producto

Still Flying is such a collection for Firefly fans. It's more like a "high school yearbook" than it is a set of short stories (there are a few, and they're good). Each cast member shares stories from the TV show, from how they got the part to their appreciation of the Browncoats fans to tales from the set. It's not just the actors; there's also input from behind the scenes people such as the stunt guy. Lots of photos of memorabilia, like the head of Jayne's statue or the Lassiter gun (which, I learned, was named after the Lassiter guy who started Pixar, apparently a friend of Joss' -- see, good trivia too).
If you're a Firefly fan who is enthusiastic enough to identify the episodes by name (which I confess I am), you will enjoy this book. It's good bathroom reading, and I mean that in the nicest way; it's unlikely you'll want to read everything in one fell swoop. And like the memory box in your attic, sometimes it's more fun to contemplate and savor one item at a time.
You don't NEED this book. But I think you'll like it.
The interviews with cast and crew are mainly collected from previously published sources. It's great to have them all in one place, but no new material. Still, the interviews are insightful and the case is refreshingly open.
Some of the background on the story development and prop designs really add depth. We only saw some of the items a handful of times so seeing them again was great. I particularly liked the section on the ships. A lot of thought went into the design of the Alliance ship, which only appeared briefly in Safe.
The short stories are probably the reason to buy this book. Two of them are great. "What Holds Us Down" by Jane Epenson and "Take the Sky" by Jose Molina really add character depth. Molina's story shows the fate of Mal and the rest of the crew. It's not a happy ending, but it fits the tone of the series. "Crystal" has some nice development for River, but it takes place too much within the shadow of the movie "Serenity" (I won't explain what that means for fear of revealing spoilers, but the entire story foreshadows the movie). "Fun with Dick and Jayne" is a short cartoon about Jayne as a kid. Cute, but nothing special.
If you are a diehard fan and want the full TV scripts as well, I recommend getting Firefly: A Celebration (Anniversary Edition), which contains everything, including "Firefly: Still Flying". I prefer this book because it is cheaper and contains the most interesting parts.
Having now read it, I must say that I really do not find a single thing wrong with this book! It's original material, like Jane Esperson explaining the writing process on a Joss Whedon show, a large amount of pics that I have not seen in other "Firefly" books, and of course the 4 great original stories...well, ok, the 2-panel "Fun With Dick And Jayne" can hardly be called a story, though it was hilarious.
There is a page that shows 6 of the shirts Jayne wore on the show (with a screen cap of each) which I appreciated, since 2 of them were ones I'd forgottenabout or never recalled seeing.
There is also a storyboard of the "Battle at Serenity Valley" scene from the Pilot episode, which I enjoyed because it showed how well it matched what you see on screen.
Of course the interviews with each cast member is taken from collected interviews, yet each was presented very well, in my opinion.
There is even great coverage of the fan film "Done The Impossible" which I personally did not know about until I read it in this book, and will seek out as a result.
It's a shame that in the book they state that there will be no sequel to "Serenity" however for me it wouldn't be worth it without Wash and Book anyway. For me, while I would love to finally learn answers to my lingering questions (What WAS Book's past? Was Inara actually quite a bit older and through some process remained youthful looking?) sometimes it's best to have an incomplete ending. With Firefly, I'm of the thought that we appreciate that we had it at all in the first place; we will always have Mal and the gang to revisit on DVD and Blu-Ray viewings.
*****End of Potential Spoilers*****
In a nutshell, I find this book to be a great addition to my Firefly/Serenity collection, and highly recommend it.
