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 […]
This release completes the 2-volume CRUSADE: OTHER VOICES series.
If this book weren’t already titled CRUSADE: OTHER VOICES, we could have named it “THE LOST TALES” because this volume includes THREE never-before-published CRUSADE scripts
What can you expect to find inside CRUSADE: OTHER VOICES VOLUME 1?
A brand new CRUSADE adventure in a never-before-seen — or even known about — SECOND SEASON script (What second season? That’s our point!). This script was discovered in 2010, 11 years after it was written.
Oh, did we mentioned that said script was written by Peter Woodward –as in the fabulous British actor who portrayed Galen the techno-mage?
This is a limited edition book. It is only available for ninety days. After January 20, 2011 this book in both the black cover and the white will never be available again. Ever.
Inside CRUSADE: WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED? Volume One’s 402 pages, you will find: J. Michael Straczynski’s introduction, revealing– * The first part of what the hell really did happen to CRUSADE, in Straczynskian detail, chronicling what he describes as the “birth, short life and long painful death” of the series. * How he nearly wandered […]
I just read the announcement at B5 Books, saying that the Crusade: What the Hell Happened? books are finally coming our way, with Volume 1 releasing on August 25… Then, I read the good part: “Why,” you inquire, “is this a FOUR-volume series when we were promised THREE in the introduction to CRUSADE: BEHIND THE […]
It’s here. The entire behind-the-scenes story of Crusade as told by the actors and crew…while the show was actually filming.
From the first frame of film until the last, these cast and crew interviews occurred “as-it-happened” so they are free of any revisionism. Nothing is forgotten. No detail spared.
The long-awaited Asked & Answered Part 5, the fifth and final book of the Asked & Answered series, has arrived. Packed with 1,301 questions, Part 5 has the most questions asked (and answered) of any book in the 5 book series.
Picking up where Part 4 left off, Part 5’s questions and answers are all related to the specifics of each episode and movie, starting with Season 2 (Season 1 was the final section of Part 4) and continuing through “The Lost Tales: Voices in the Dark.”
Asked and Answered Part 4 is J. Michael Straczynski’s real-time history of the beginnings of Babylon 5: from before the pilot (including the online announcement of the series) and through Season 1.
Part 4 is loaded with details that never made it to the screen as well as the origins of what did eventually air.
Rants, religion, money, sex and Star Trek… just a few of the topics covered in the most volatile release of the entire Asked & Answered series.
Part 3 (pages 779-1,183) includes more than 1,100 missives.
Part 2 (pages 387-778) includes more than 800 missives grouped into the following topics: Fan Interaction, Five Year Arc, Fun with JMS, Influences, JMS on JMS, JMS on Politics, Legacy of Babylon 5, Merchandise of Babylon 5, Music of Babylon 5, Online Experiment, Physics & Babylon 5, Places & Planets, and the Production of Babylon 5
It’s true. The creator of Babylon 5 answers 5,296 fan questions covering every aspect of the show in over 100 categories in this new Babylon 5 book series.
J. Michael Straczynski answered these questions as they surfaced over a period of 18 years as part of an online experiment he started in 1991 and continues to this day.
