Steven Brust, he of the magnificent Vlad Taltos books, has just released a Firefly novel.
The best thing is, My Own Kind of Freedom is a fanfic. Yup, completely unauthorised, and released under a Creative Commons licence. Apparently it ‘demanded’ to be written, which always results in the best stories, I find.
Your moral and religious standpoint on Fan Fiction may preclude you from greeting such news with joy. Me? New Steven Brust work. New Firefly work. For FREE. How can that be a bad thing?
