    It seems to still be an active site and I think Jason Davis was doing some, if not all, of the work. I don't know how much involvement B5Books had other than Jason.

      Second, it may have left a bad taste in JMS' mouth the way it ended. See, JMS financed all of the things they were selling and the physical 'home' of the Fan Club was at Netter Digital. Netter Digital declared bankurptcy and the Fan Club stuff was considered to be ND assets. I emailed JMS back when the ND stuff was supposed to be auctioned and asked him to bid on it and I'd be his fulfillment. That was when he told me that he'd already paid for all that stuff once (paraphrasing heavily).

      Am learning New (to me) things all the time here. Didn't know the Fan Club was swallowed by a bankruptcy sinkhole, could see where JMS wouldn't want history repeating itself. Can recall a few instances where businesses had web sites where the hosting company "owned" the domains, which seemed great until it wasn't .

      Been wandering about JMS's Patreon for a week or so now, and while 2020 (pun!) hindsight seems that his relationship with Patreon would change with the times (ex: Estate Adventures, Pandemics, New Projects) would gather that one of his purposes has always been share information, which he has been doing since the dial-up days. If he wishes to release advance info or goodies Behind a Paywall-ish - why not? The main reason my lazy late self finally joined at the $20 level was for the B5 commentaries, and while several have been publicly released, they appear to available at at the $2 level. Would have joined sooner had I known it was so simple.

        Yes, Jason was doing it most recently. Originally it was another CafePress store managed by Captain Jaclyn and her elves.

          Speaking of, I am surprised we haven't heard much from Captain Jaclyn lately. I don't mean new Books or anything. Just seems like there might be something?

                I agree. A bit frightening. "Where is everybody?" (I am actually quoting Earl Holliman not attempting to point out the name of the Twilight Zone episode.)

                But it is quite strange how we have the biggest news in decades and everything as gotten quiet here. I assume it is because people are preparing for the impending holidays. Also everyone must be hanging on to the edge of their seats for the next big news.

                I just realized I wish I had checked JMS' Patreon numbers to see how much they increased when he announced the new series. 😣 Oh well. Just would have been interesting to know, I'm sure they will continue to rise as thing progress.

                  Well, heaven knows we've been talking about and debating the whoe reboot thing here for many years. Not too much else to say except to wait and see.

                  Dunno that they went up a lot but what I did notice is that they didn't go *down* recently when the TLDV tier went away. That's encouraging.

                  And DAMN! What he's posted the last few days!!!
