Welcome to Show #270!
This week, Laura Martos from the League of Non-Aligned Knitters (also Show #200 and Show #133) and John from Jersey (from the Critical Myth Podcast and T’John in Voices of Babylon) join Tim, Summer and Jeremy this week joins the show.
And we all marvel at the fact that the prices for the out of print novels in the Technomage and Centauri trilogies have come down over the past years, and mull over a few rare books that we might not hesitate to spend $100 on if we saw them.
And go watch H+ the Digital Series; Summer is impressed and doesn’t think you’ll be disappointed. It’s the first web series she’s seen since Dr Horrible that she’s planning on buying on DVD even before knowing if one will ever be available [read her review over at Slice of SciFi].
Deep Geeking: To Dream in the City of Sorrows is Book #9 in the original series of novels, and one of the two from that series that have been acknowledged as canon.
Talk about the book ranges from the cover art, the story arcs for Sinclair, Marcus, Catherine and Neroon, the accuracy of the character “voices”, the nagging feeling that this book’s pacing was too fast, and very likely could have been a much better book if it had been allowed to be longer, and more.
And Arkle has graciously volunteered to write a Babylon 5 fanfic that tells the tale of “Phantom of the Opera” with B5 characters. Can’t wait to read it!

Lurker’s Guide 2.0: Summer is expanding the documentation to be covered at Lurker’s Guide 2.0, the major change being converting the episode guide into a full Wiki with cross-referenced topics, tidbits and everything you’d want in a Wiki. She’s also still searching for pictures of rare collectibles, photos of magazine covers and toys, and all sorts of other B5 goodies that didn’t get included in the original guide during the years after Crusade. Let her know if you want to lend a hand.
More Parody/Filk Songs Wanted: If you know of any more B5-related fan songs out there, definitely let us know, so we can let other B5 fans know where to buy them! And if those CDs are out of print, let’s brainstorm on ways to get those songs back out there for fans!
Babylon Podcast Social Communities:
Babylon 5 Information Gathering: If you know of a dead or abandoned B5 related website that may be in need of a new home, let Summer know! Maybe we can mirror it here or house it on a sister site.
