. . . which means there are some neat things we've got in progress that we haven't gotten around to telling much of anybody.
Here are the highlights:
Save Veronica Mars! - If you're a VM fan, you're probably up on the kerfluffle about the show being considered (again-- sigh) for cancellation. We've teamed up with SaveVeronicaMars.tv (formerly SaveVeronicaMars.com) to help the campaign to save the show: for every copy of Neptune Noir sold through their site, we'll donate $5 to the campaign. So if you were planning on picking up a copy, that would be my recommendation for the way to do it!
New Serenity Book - Finding Serenity's been such a great book for us that we're putting together a second collection of essays on the Firefly universe, this time covering the movie Serenity as well. We're calling it Serenity Found. Jane Espenson's back as our editor, and we've got essays by Nathan "Captain Tightpants" Fillion and Mutant Enemy special effects wizard Loni Peristere (and Orson Scott Card, and some of our other favorite Smart Pop writers). Pub date is set for October 2007.
