12:35 pm - Firefly fan fiction - written by Steven Brust
Yesterday, bruceb posted a link to something that I'd heard nothing about, a novel-length work of Firefly fan fiction, written by fantasy author Steven Brust - My Own Kind of Freedom. It's currently available in doc and pdf form, and the PDF is 168 pages long. I eventually had to stop reading last night in order to get some work done, but I'm much of the way through it and am loving it. He has the characters' voices down perfectly. Also, it's set either before or disregarding the events of Serenity, which makes it even better from my PoV.

Oddly, this is the first work by Brust that is not set in the Dragaeran Empire that I've enjoyed reading, and it's utterly wonderful.
Current Mood: pleasedpleased

i read this over the weekend and really enjoyed it. while some people aren't too keen on the flip-flopping between everyone in the book, I LOVED it. he totally nailed each character down and it was fun riding along in each person's mind.

totally loved it.

*nods* I finished it last night and was exceptionally pleased. Brust seems like he does best writing in an established setting, and he nailed all of the characters perfectly and came up with a good plot besides. I was especially impressed at how well he handled River.

I feel the same way. I really liked how he treated River and I also liked how he created a possible explanation for why her brain worked the same way. Just all those calculations AND possibilities and the answer she chose with the wording... worked so well.
