OK -- here's your chance to pre-order the essential guide to Whedonverse. Who, you may ask, is Joss Whedon?? Well, he's the writer/director for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Serenity, Firefly, Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, the newly-released Cabin in the Woods movie and the upcoming Avengers movie. Not ringing any bells? Well, clearly, you are too ensconced in historical fiction (or other literary pursuits) and completely out-of-touch with pop culture -- or you don't have a 21-year-old son who contributed an essay to this book! An essay that only a college philosophy major could write and that only a mother could brag about. Nonetheless -- if you want to delve into a world that will jar your reality, this is the book for you. (Never fear, my son receives no royalties -- so your purchase will make no difference to his pocketbook -- his parents will continue to support him until he finds a job as a philosopher.)

Bonnie, does the fact that your daughter got offers from 5 law schools count?

Wow this is great I just added it to my amazon wish list, you should post this on the Club members thoughts forum too, there seems to be a lot of Firefly fans on there.  ( I would post to the Paranormal thread too )
