For a brief moment in time (8 years actually since the project started) we were given new B5 material to enjoy, argue about and commiserate with. The books became invaluable aides as our discussions went on over the years ( in Tim’s case, on and on…). The Script Books, Other Voices, the Chronologies and even the latest “Echoes” series gave us answers to things that were either overlooked, changed, omitted or never made it to the page. They enriched our appreciation of the show, both in front of, and behind the camera, as well let us peer glimpses into alternate story lines that never were.
Tim, Summer and I would like to extend our appreciation to Captain Jacyln, Jason, Jan and of course Joe for their hard work on all the books, as well as taking the time to come on our show over the years to share and sometimes tease us with the books contents, and their own opinions of Babylon 5.
Until we meet again Old Friends, be well.
Below is the statement they put out via email and their website this morning:
“Nothing’s the same anymore.”
— Jeffrey Sinclair, “Chrysalis”
|It’s true. B5 Books is retiring its catalog. Why? Because, like BABYLON 5, we’ve accomplished everything we set out to do. (And it only took 8 years.)However, there are three exceptions:EXCEPTION #1
The CRUSADE books will remain in production until the WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED? series is finished. A status update on future volumes — with some new news — will appear in our next mailing.EXCEPTION #2:
In April, to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of BABYLON 5, we will offer something special that will be available for only one week. It’s so secret that’s all we can say for now.EXCEPTION #3:
After the 20th anniversary release, the current B5books.com website will shut down.When it re-boots, B5books.com will no longer be part of Cafepress. Some time after this, we will offer our last word on the BABYLON 5 universe (that’s your only hint.) That said, the new site will focus on reference materials for the retired catalog (indexes, tables of contents, etc.)
If you have any questions or concerns email us for a prompt, personal response firstname.lastname@example.org.
LAST CHANCE EVER…REALLY.
Like all our previous releases, ECHOES will never, ever be offered again. Our concern is that folks who wait until the last minute (our PRO-crastinators) might be out of luck because the Babylon 5 actors have only signed a certain number of books.
|P.S. If we run out of ECHOES books after you order, Cafepress will send you an out-of-stock notification instead of an order confirmation.|
