  • Script Team Announcement

    OK, it's the 20th of August. Where is my announcement. (Is it possible to have a temper tantrum on these boards? Maybe I could hold my breath until I turn blue unless they announce immediately!) Anyway, as soon as they do tell us anything we can celebrate here, no?

    I don't know about holding your breath, but you could ...turn your text blue.

      Perhaps, as I'm in the middle of my tantrum, an angry red would be more appropriate?

        Would OH MY GOD!!!!!! be appropriate here?

            I thought it was interesting to note that the book is authorized by JMS. Since it's basically a compendium of facts, is it actually necessary to have it authorized? I would think of more importance is any material that was originally printed in the B5 Magazine. Since it was a licensed magazine, it means that anything that appeared in those pages is copyrighted by Warner Bros, so I hope that doesn't become an issue.

              Well, now we know why they were trying to track down Terry Jones.

              I could have sworn, when I was reading some of that material in the B5 magazine that there were some things that were contradicted by stuff that JMS posted at one time or another. I don't remember any examples, but such contradictions are part and parcel of such an undertaking. Of course, here they are taking material from loads of sources and putting it all together and presumably resolving contradictions. I wonder how much input/feedback JMS gave on some of those.

              I wonder how they put the "non-canon" novels into it all.

              Also, it will be interesting to see the material based on the Crusade scripts
              ôValue Judgmentsö - UNPRODUCED
              ôTo the Ends of the Earthö - UNPRODUCED
              ôEnd of the Lineö - UNPRODUCED
              ôTried and Trueö - ASSIGNED - UNWRITTEN
              This might appear to strengthen the possibility that we'll at least see these three unproduced scripts in a Crusade script book [please ]

                Wouldn't that depend on what rights too the material the magazine bought? If they only bought first reprint rights, once the story had been published by them, the authors could take it elsewhere, correct?

                  My understanding is that the Chronology wasn't done for (commissioned by) the B5 magazine, they only purchased the first right of publication. Fiona Avery comments on that in her introduction to the chronology in the magazine.

                  As for the authorized status, no, it probably wouldn't have been necessary to have it authorized by JMS but knowing the fans, knowing that they are authorized adds value to them.

                    Thanks for posting the link here, I was frantically checking my mailbox all the time. Well, I guess there goes the money I got for my birthday ... B5 really is an addiction, but I hope it's not curable

                      jms never said the Dell novels were non-canon. What he said was that he accepted that they all happened in the broad strokes, but the details weren't always there:

                      jms 1995:

                      The books are canon in broad terms, in that the events generally did
                      happen, but the details can vary given that you've got diverse hands doing
                      the work (including the comics). I try to work with them both in as much
                      detail as I can...I read the novel manuscripts preperatory to being
                      typeset, and same for the comics, making suggestions and changes as
                      necessary.
                      jms 1997:

                      The other books...in broad strokes, I accept they happened, but
                      in the details, and how they're treated, and some incidentals...they
                      haven't hit all the right cylinders.

                        I hope this isn't a substitute for an actual Crusade script book.

                          My guess is the Crusade books are still coming, because "A Call to Arms" is conspicuously absent from the upcoming Movie Script Book.

                            If you're going to put the books out 'in order,' it makes a lot more sense to put out the movies first and then Crusade. Aside from that, I suspect that JMS might have a lot more to say in that later, which will require a certain amount of time, whereas it may take a bit less time to answer the fans' questions instead. And I agree, the lack of 'A Call to Arms' would certainly suggest what is still to come.
