    Actually...I think I changed it. Not that both of your thread titles weren't absolutely lovely, they were. I'm just still very insecure about doing things like that and I'm always afraid I'll lose everything from both threads...

    Anyway this is of course great news. Getting B5 in the public eye is always good. Maybe some more interest will be generated for a movie again.
    I want to see some of those 'tell me a story' ones that JMS was talking about.

      Ah, but does absolute corruption empower?

        That's another one I'll have to get back to you on. Or not...after all, I'm such a nice person, who could ever suspect me of corruption??

            Oh, I assure you that was a purely rhetorical question and I have no suspicions of you regarding corruption of any kind.

              Is that why you're slipping money under the table?

                      It may be off-topic but I read this anecdote, told by Steven Barnes(look it up, a good SF-writer). Apparently he went to an SF-convention where the special guest was Larry Niven. So he introduces himself with "Hello Mr. Niven. My name is Steven Barnes and I'm a writer too".

                      Niven puffs his cigar, looks at Steven Barnes and says "O.K. Tell me a story".
                      According to Barnes he did tell a story, with sweat pouring down his back, sweat in his hands, sweat everywhere. He came out of it allright, he wrote some great stories and books together with Larry Niven a year or so later...

                        Is this the same Barnes who was lauded as the first black Star Wars novelist? If so, I found his work to be terrible.
                        Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

                          Well that's in the eye of the reader...


                          This is the guy who finished 'The Locusts' when Niven got stuck, and turned it into one of the best SF-novellas I have ever read. And boy did I read a lot of them... Famous opening and closing line of the story : "There are no people on Alpha Centauri"...(you only know what that refers to at the end of the story). I must admit that I am as good as convinced that that line was written by Larry Niven hmimself, it really is his style.

                          Anyway : this is also the guy who co-wrote 'The Legacy of Heorot' and 'Dragons of Heorot', very worthwhile books, and not fantasy but pure Science Fiction.
