Saw the last episode of Firefly last night and have to say I enjoyed the series as a whole. Ok. I had a few problems with it occasionally. But I’ve watched a lot of science fiction television and as far as that goes, Firefly is about as good as it ever gets. Does that really count from someone who watched SeaQuest DSV into the second season because she thought “surely it would get better than this?” Probably not. The update on the book is that its now in the hands of Brian Basset for review, and I need to add Bill Barnes‘ forward and artwork this weekend. Funny how I always seem to know exactly what I’ll be doing all weekend by Tuesday.
Firefly fans are ever vigilant—what began with a link from Bill’s blog at Unshelved turned into a link on the Firefly fan messageboards, and that resulted in the highest number of visitors to the website that we’ve had in a day. What I know about the show mainly comes from a friend, a dedicated viewer who has tirelessly brought the DVDs over for the last several months in hopes that I will become another member of the vast army of fans Joss Whedon is gathering to his fold. Although not willing to camp out on anyone’s lawn over it, I have been enjoying the show.
The foreword has been passed off to its author and the book is now waiting on its completion before going to press. The party at Bill Barnes’ (Unshelved) house was a lot of fun, and there was no shortage of food. His newly remodeled office has enormous windows surrounding the computer, meaning if I had the same setup I wouldn’t be able to put the strips together in my jammies. I’ve now moved the process of putting the strips together on the new, faster desktop, and it’s a lot easier to scan and complete these web pages. I’m also doing it this morning with a big and fluffy cat in my lap insisting on my attention.
