Firefly brought to book
Novel adventures for Joss Whedon's space western.
Three new books based upon the adventures of Mal Reynolds and his motley crew have been announced by publishers Simon and Schuster.
The range will launch next autumn with an adaptation of Joss Whedon's screenplay for big screen adventure Serenity.
Although the publishers considered asking Joss to write the novel himself, the job eventually fell to Keith R.A. DeCandido, who has previously written several Buffy and Angel tie-ins.
The Serenity adaptation will be followed by two original Firefly novels in 2006.
