Tor published an excerpt from Joss Whedon: The Biography:
Chapter 18 Curse Your Sudden but Inevitable Cancellation

Here’s some of my favorite pieces:


The WB Bows Out

  • My eulogy for a network that once defined my life.

Kevin Smith Saved My Life

  • My first ode to fandom.

There’s Got To Be a Better Way to Sell Tampons

  • The Atlantic completely missed the point of Hello Flo’s brilliant and groundbreaking marketing campaign.

How to Know if He’s REALLY Into You

  • My researched response to that irritating book.


  • Getting naked on a Spencer Tunick photo shoot.


I love talking to people and asking questions that lead to the kinds of stories that fans rarely get to hear.

Interview: David Lowery (Camper Van Beethoven, Cracker)

  • Camper Van Beethoven was my favorite band in high school, so talking to David Lowery was an incredible thrill.

Interview: Lennon Parham & Jessica St. Clair (BFF, Playing House)

  • Talking to these ladies was such a joy, and I felt like I was part of one of their wacky adventures.

Interview: Busy Phillips (Cougar Town)

  • Busy Phillips is fascinating, funny and eloquent — and we talked YA books!

Interview: Retta (Parks and Recreation)

  • I loved how, after expounding on her love of Twilight and The Vampire Diaries, Retta explained that she didn’t watch Buffy because she wasn’t into vampires. I couldn’t let that go.

Interview: Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost, The Middle Man, Boomtown, Charmed)

  • I think we talked and laughed for nearly three hours and I could have talked to him for three days just about Boomtown. And Javier gave the best quote ever about Ricardo Montalban.

Interview: John Shiban (The X-Files, Supernatural)

  • Have you ever talked to someone who was wonderful and loved their job so much that it made you feel so much better everything going on in the world? John Shiban is that someone.

Interview: Bryan Fuller (Heroes, Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies, Hannibal)

  • So much good stuff about the first season of Heroes!

Interview: Jorja Fox (CSI)

  • I was initially taken off guard by how little she was like Sara Sidle — quick to laugh and make jokes — and so quickly even more charmed as she recounted so many self-deprecating stories.

Interview: Caroline Dhavernas (Wonderfalls, Hannibal)

  • We bonded over the smoldering sexiness of Lee Pace, how Law & Order fixes everything and our same, intense irrational fear of driving over bridges.
