Whedonesque - a community weblog about Joss Whedon
"I know you've heard colorful rumors about what an Active is. Robots, zombie slaves. They are, of course, quite the opposite. The Active is the truest soul among us."

How Joss influenced Bob Harris' "The International Bank of Bob". Bob reveals a nifty bit of narrative advice Joss gave him in this Nerdist Writer's Panel podcast. Relevant part is about 4 minutes in.

That explains why Joss was given first dibs with his blurb in the book.

I've read Mr. Harris' "Prisoner of Trebekistan" (as a longtime Jeopardy! watcher) and enjoyed it tremendously, especially once I realized with a shock who "Jane" was. I haven't read his other works, but he seems like a talented writer and all-around smartypants (in the best sense of the term).
Yes, Jane Espenson had helped to promote Bob Harris' "Prisoner of Trebekistan" (she is the reason I bought it and read it). He is a good writer.
@embers, I stumbled across the book in the library and was interested enough to read it, without knowing about the Espenson connection, so it was a pleasant surprise.
Bob Harris interview was terrific.

Nerdist Writers Panel podcasts are generally informative and worth the time if you have an interest in the nutsy-boltsy aspects of TV writing in LA. It's really interesting to go back to old ones and hear how things were done differently only a few years ago.
