Chris Wooding's series, starting with RETRIBUTION FALLS, has shown up a few times in "things to scratch the Firefly itch." I'm about halfway through the first book and although it's not QUITE there with respect to either quality or tone, it's definitely in the neighborhood.

Anyone else give it a read? Thoughts?

When I finish the book, I'll likely post the crew of the Ketty Jay so I'm wondering if I'm just doing it for myself. Also, interested -- if anyone has read -- in suggestions for images or casting choices.

Don't expect 100% Firefly... but these guys feel like they could hang out with our crew.

I think one especially negative review described it as 60% Firefly, 20% misogyny, and 20% bad exposition.

It's definitely more "masculine" than a lot of Joss's stuff (the crew is sort of a dysfunctional band of brothers with a token female thrown in). But the dysfunction will probably be of the stripe you're looking for. We've got Nobleman with a Tragic Secret, Silent Super-Competent Right Hand Man, Crude Warrior (but younger and much less experienced than Jayne), Friendly but Drunken Doctor, Woman on the Run with a Secret Past... Pull up a chair. You'll feel right at home. Especially when the crew has a meeting to discuss their Next Big Plan at the dining room table...
