Not exactly the newest news, but...

There's a collection of essays about Farscape. There's a collection of essays about Firefly. They're both from BenBella Books, the company that published David Gerrold's Blood and Fire and reprinted his earlier Star Wolf books.

So I looked at their website and found this listed as a 2006 title:

Boarding the Enterprise, edited by David Gerrold and Robert J. Sawyer.

I googled and found nothing... except for a Sawyer blog entry from February. Oops. Canada's biggest-selling SF writer and I don't even read his blog regularly. Anyway, it's a collection of essays celebrating the original Star Trek's 40th anniversary, and according to Sawyer, the list of contributors includes D.C. Fontana, Norman Spinrad, and Garfield and Judith Reeves-Stevens, as well as a few science fiction writers and an astronomer. It's an interesting lineup, and I'll be looking forward to the book. I just hope it isn't tainted too much by the disdain for the post-TOS series that too many TOS fans seem to be spewing these days. If we're lucky, the subject simply won't come up.

I wonder if the Firefly and Farscape books from BenBella are any good....
