    "Fascism always comes in quietly, holding a flag in one hand and a holy book in the other, inching its way in. The bugles and drums only sound after they've already taken over and believe it's too late to do anything about it." JMS Twitter Dec. 24, 2017

      The event on the Politics and Prose site is here.

      2 key things from the page:

      NOTE: Anyone can enter the post-event signing line provided they have proof of having purchased Becoming Superman from Politics and Prose. The author will sign up to three other items in addition to Becoming Superman.

      This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
      I have never attended an event there, but I am highly considering doing so. I plan on buying the book beforehand from elsewhere, so will pass on the signing line.

        Neil, I hope you do go to the DC event. I'm tempted to drive out to LA for the launch event, but that would require taking two days of vacation. It will be interesting to see what kind of turnout there will be at the bookstore events.

          At Shore Leave convention this weekend there was a B5 panel Saturday morning (I was in the audience). Near the end of the panel I told everyone about the Politics and Prose event. Many had not heard of it and I think many were interested.

            On the infinitesimal chance that it might prompt JMS to do drop by, I tweeted to him "I presume you will not have time to drop by Goddard Space Flight Center while you are in the area next month, @straczynski Thought you might like that we have had this B5CCG poster in the MMS Flight Dynamics Operations Area since before our first long eclipse season." I included a photo with the poster and a display we have up in the area. It would definitely be cool to show him around, but I doubt he has time in his schedule. Still, it is worth planting a seed.

                  I hope I can get to listen to it. Right now I am starting listening to the podcast you mentioned before.

                    Looking at the most recent past show there are mp3 downloads and streaming available, so presumably Joe's show will also be archived there.

                      Yes, but **only** if you register. Grrrr !

                      And it is behind a pay wall....

                      No, thank you.
