Bruce Bethke posts essay from Serenity found on his blog. On his blog, author Bruce Bethke posts the essay originally published in Jane Espenson's Serenity Found, titled Cut 'em Off at the Horsehead Nebula!.
The essay has been split into three parts, here are the links to Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.
Jane Espenson would often mentioned this essay in particular when interviewed regarding Serenity Found (one example can be found here).
Tangentially, Bethke recently posted an essay by Guy Stewart regarding Michael Shaara and his book The Killer Angels. In the essay, Stewart describes how Shaara started off writing Science Fiction, but went mainstream after his stories were rejected by the Science Fiction publications of the day.
This is interesting since Joss has said that the idea for Firefly came after reading Shaara's The Killer Angels.
