Joss Whedon Biography on ‘Firefly’

io9 has an exclusive excerpt of Amy Pascale's biography of writer/director Joss Whedon, in the form of a full chapter detailing the beginnings of Firefly.  It includes a lot of great behind-the-scenes anecdotes on the conception, casting, and production of the show (may it rest in peace), including why it got the title it got: Joss most likely didn't want Fillion to take on all the pressure for the series' success.

Bear McCreary Has a YouTube Channel!

Any Battlestar Galactica fan worth her salt knows who Bear McCreary is.  He composed all of the original music for the show, is currently working on AMC's hit show The Walking Dead, and is easily the most interesting composer working in television today.  Despite owning the BSG soundtrack albums and loving his music, I'd managed to miss the fact that Mr. McCreary has his own YouTube channel, which he updates regularly.  Around six months ago he started posting solo piano performances of his BSG … [Read more...]

What Far-Future SF Gets Wrong

We couldn't possibly imagine what the world--or the universe--will look like thousands of years from now.  Right?  Much like an ancient Sumerian transported to Manhattan, 2014, we could even begin to wrap our feeble little brains around the Earth of 7014.  Or so we often assume.  The Tor-Forge blog reprinted an article from 2012 written by Michael Flynn, author of the Spiral Arm series, which posits an interesting alternative: maybe the far future won't be much different at all.
