"Superb. 'A Celebration' really is the perfect title for this book as it delves into every single bit of the Firefly universe that you could hope. A must-have for fans and a truly essential purchase." --Comic Book Movie

"It ll make you smile... and it may make you cry. It will definitely make you wonder what could have been with a second season... or maybe even a third or beyond." --Wired s Geek Dad

"An incredibly immersive experience." --Just Press Play

"Whether you ve been with Firefly from the start or are just seeing it for the first time, this book is the perfect companion." --whatculture.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection 3 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A tome truly worthy of the diehard FFF.

There was a rumor that the UK and US versions contained different material, however after purchasing both I can assure that they are the same in every detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Firefly - A Celebration! 19 Oct 2012
By Andy
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I may be a late arrival to the Firefly / Serenity 'Verse, but as with most people who have seen the series, I love it. There's just something that when I rewatch it that puts a big smile on my face. And so not having the previous Illustrated Companion Volumes and Still Flying that this book collects, I just had to get it, and just in time for the 10th anniversary too.

This book is gorgeous. From the faux leather effect binding when you first have it in your hands and when start thumbing through the 544 pages, you'll know you have a book that is loving crafted and compiled by people that loved Firefly.

The pages are packed with in-depth interviews with creator Joss Whedon and the cast and crew of the beloved series, plus full, uncut shooting scripts to all the episodes - with notes from cast and crew about each episode. Lots of rare photos of the cast, crew, props and costumes, as well as production art previously unavailable elsewhere are included also. There's also new stories from the writers of the original episodes too.

And exclusively for this edition, there are nine portrait photographs of the cast and a facsimile of one of the bank notes used in the series.

So if you're a fan of the show, and particularly if you haven't already got the three Firefly Companion Volumes that are collected here, I would definitely recommend getting this. Shiny!

5.0 out of 5 stars Shiny. 26 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A hefty tome of Firefly lore and scripts. At last! Bore your friends with reciting page after page of script! Never letting a misquote go uncorrected again! A lovely book and well worth a place in any Firefly fan's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply worth every penny! 31 Oct 2012
By Alyss
Format:Hardcover
This book was definitely worth the purchase. It was larger than I expected and VERY VERY nice.
The old and new content makes a nice balance as well - I also love the 'posters' and currency included. Hours of reading I think, and a lovely thing to add to my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't stop the signal... 7 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book is a collection of the three Companions "Volume 1, 2 & Still Flying", which I already possess. They consist of scripts for every single episode of the show + they provide lots of interesting background information about the cast, props, fanbase and even some short stories about the characters we all love so much!
Since I already own the three companions, one might ask for the reason I bought this book. The answer is simple and can be broken down into three points:

First: The whole layout is fantastic. The fake-leather cover in combination with the embossed letters is a real eye-catcher that looks very noble in the book-shelve.

Second: This special version comes with some high-quality photographs from the original cast. It also includes a prop-replica of one of the bank notes used in the show, printed on high-quality paper. This bank note looks and feels like real money from the verse. The only thing you could hold against it is the fact that it looks almost too shiny. Like it came fresh from the press... some sort of "used-look" would make it look even more realistic but even the fresh print is a cool prop to have for every fellow Browncoat out there.

Third: The price Amazon offered this book was way too good to let this opportunity pass. Especially for a fanboy like myself...

So if you love the show but hesitated to buy the companions: Here is your chance to catch them all at once and get some nice goodies on top! And if you already own the companions: The content of the book won't be any big news for you but the get-up might convince you to buy it anyway. I did not regret the bargain :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Browncoats! Gather... 4 Oct 2013
By Ingrid
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
and listen up, this book is a must have for every firefly fan. You cannot avoid it, no matter how much you try. More than 500 pages of amazing stories, information and pictures, the overall look is stunning and worth the price. The additional pictures and the bank note are quite nice as well, however, I have to agree with others, it would have been a lot nicer if the bank note would have looked a little used. Haven't started reading it yet, but from scanning through the pages it looks amazing. Can't wait to finish my current book to get started on the real stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Companion to a Great TV series 23 Sep 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The content of the individual volumes themselves is great when all combined in one book you cannot go wrong.
You get great photographs-the scripts -interviews with cast and crew all laid out well. This book comes with some stills and a "currency" note.
