    I dunno, I tend to be doubtful of much of what I hear from people from Del Ray after a number of experiences already, plus the fact that both of those two novels have been reprinted for almost a year now without any new additions.

    Besides, 1-6 and 8 never sold that well in the first place, and probably don't stand a whole lot of a chance of improving on sales considering the fan base is so against them. Not to mention I'm sure JMS would like nothing more but for them to disappear forever ;P

    I wouldn't go with that statement, necessarily .. Steve from Del Rey has said their intentions are to put all of the B5 books back in print, starting with the two with the biggest demand (Shadow Within/to Dream), which has been done ... It's not just possible, but probable, that within the next several months, we'll have another one of the books back in print.

    The outlines were done for the 3 trilogies (Centauri Prime - Peter David .... Techno-Mage - Jeanne Cavelos ... Bester - J. Gregory Keyes).

    The novelizations for ThirdSpace and In the Beginning by Peter David are both really good .... The novelization for A Call to Arms by Robert Sheckley is rather bland. It's not bad, just bland.

    Also check out #7 Shadow Within by Jeanne Cavelos ... It serves as a prequel to the Techno-Mage trilogy ... also #9 To Dream by Kathryn Drennan - the wife of JMS.

    started a topic B5 novels based on outlines by JMS

    B5 novels based on outlines by JMS

    OK I bought some bab 5 books some people
    told me to check out.

    The only ones I like with the ones that had this on the cover:

    BASED ON AN ORIGINAL OUTLINE BY J. MICHAEL STRACZYNSKI

    But when I go to Amazon, there is nothing to tell me if the book is based on a outline by JMS, even the books i known don't that say it.

    Does everyone which books (a list please ) have this.
Working...
