Can you believe it’s 10 years to the day since, Joss Whedon’s Firefly was first broadcast on US TV? Bet you feel old now.
But we bet you also feel sad, because no show in sci-fi history has inspired such a passionate and devoted fanbase from such little screentime. It may have been cancelled after a paltry 14 episodes were produced (sob) but Firefly still became the quintessential cult show, with its own big screen revival and some of the most memorable characters in science fiction.
To say happy birthday, Titan Books have combined their three previously-published Firefly companions into one lavish, 544-page hardback collection. It features the full uncut scripts, in-depth interviews with Joss Whedon, the cast and crew, rare photos, and new stories from the show’s writers. Bound in a brown leather-effect cover with an embossed gold foil title, it’s definitely one of the shiniest looking books around.
Even better than that, here at SFX we have three copies to give away, and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is answer the embarrassingly easy question here .
