The writer-producer who cut her teeth on Buffy and Firefly, and most recently steered the Caprica ship, is dropping science after an almost two-year absence. You should go read.

For a good long while, Jane Espenson was dispensing Hollywood-writery wisdom — nuggets of truth gleaned from years working for people like Joss Whedon and Ronald D. Moore, on shows as varied as Buffy, Dollhouse, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Gilmore Girls, Andy Barker PI, and Jake in Progress — as well as daily reports of her lunchtime adventures, on her eponymous blog. And then she took the showrunner gig on Caprica and stopped blogging cold. That was 16 months ago. If you wanted to hear from her, you needed to follow her on Twitter.


But now she's back, from outer space, helping writers find both their voices and ideas for the afternoon repast. Who knows how long she'll stick to it — she's slated to write an episode of HBO's Game of Thrones series, and she's too awesome to remain idle for long — so soak up the knowledge juice while you can.
