Product Details


“[I am] delighted to be bringing new, official stories to fans of a show that has continued to grow in popularity over the years, finding new audiences in an unprecedented way,” commissioning editor Cat Camacho said in a statement. “Firefly is a hugely unique IP and Titan Books is excited to be becoming part of its legacy.” – Entertainment Weekly

Via Entertainment Weekly, series creator Joss Whedon will be a consulting editor on the new Fireflynovels, and they will all be official stories within the canon of the franchise. The first novel, Firefly: Big Damn Hero, will be written by Nancy Holder. That book will launch the line in October with a story that finds Malcolm Reynolds, the captain of Serenity and its crew, kidnapped by “a bunch of embittered veteran Browncoats.” For anyone new to the franchise, Browncoats were the nicknames for the rebels who lost an intergalactic civil war with the Alliance. Mal and his right-hand woman, Zoe Alleyne, were also Browncoats. –  Nerdist

“[Big Damn Hero is] Season Two. Episode One.” – Birth.Movies.Death

“the Firefly you know and love” – Birth.Movies.Death

“illuminates not only a huge chunk of Mal’s past but also showcases a perfectly plausible chapter in the adventures of the Serenity’s crew” - The Frumious Consortium

“Fans who know the ‘verse well…will feel right at home in this story that spans the era before the series, with callbacks to events in the series, and right afterward as if it were a 15th episode.” –

 “For someone who genuinely enjoyed the Firefly verse, this was a treat to read” – Editing Everything

“An outstanding tie-in to the beloved TV series, this book is shiny in every way possible” – Books Bones & Buffy

“This was a wild ride back into the world of Firefly that I sorely missed; I loved learning some of the backstory that Fox robbed us from fifteen years ago and look forward to the next installment” – Reader Voracious

“Big Damn Hero absolutely nails it across the board for me…It brings back all of the familiar and beloved while adding in dashes of the new and unknown. This Firefly book is a no brainer buy for fans of the franchise.” – Nerds on Earth
