    If it's the one about having to hang upside down while looking in a mirror then yes I think it applies! I am excited that it will be on a regular schedule again, whatever the books may be!

    The short stories have very definitely been discussed. I think they're probably the second most requested items after Crusade.

    ETA: No worries about the name, I just thought it looked better this way and I don't like editing other people's posts without saying something.

    Thanks for that direct answer Jason.

    Have the short stories ever been brought up as a possible option for reprinting? The cost of aquiring them is so prohibitive for most fans, I would hope jms could help out the fans yet again.

    (I'm not holding you to anything more specific then the topic having been discussed, honest.)

    It's a contractual issue. B5 must be finished before Crusade can commence.

    Apologies to Jan for the name confusion, and to Jason for the descriptive errors.

    I hope the announcement on the new books happens before the end of March.

    I am happy to hear about additional books, I would have thought the well would be starting to run dry of the oooh and ahh stuff at this point.

    One nagging question I am still having is a lack of understanding on why the hold on the Crusade books? Is there a production issue, or is it simply a marketing decision.

    Well, even though our dear commander Ivanova loves mysteries, they just make me bite my nails down. I am definitely intrigued by the upcoming books. *hopes that time goes by faster until release*

    I wouldn't say Jason "got to know" JMS doing the interviews for Creative Screenwriting, but he did demonstrate a depth of knowledge about Straczynski's work and a certain skill set that Jaclyn Easton had been looking for.

    In addition to what Jan said above, I can tell you that the second set of mysterious books mentioned last night on the podcast will contain significant Crusade content, but will not be the scripts, nor a continuation of the aborted narrative.

    Hmm. As for exhausting B5 material before moving on to Crusade, I would have loved to see the B5 short stories collected, and maybe the JMS outlines for the canon novels. But that doesn't really fit Jan's corrected "never knew you wanted" since I'm sure many other people than myself knew they wanted those!

    Colour me intrigued. I hope they're as great as you say Jan, because I too am eager to get hold of the Crusade books.

    EDIT: Hmm. I may be looking into things too closely, but Jan didn't say a new script book would be coming out every month, just a new book. What if it's original fiction of some kind? Whether prose, or maybe even comic book stuff, fresh form JMS? Maybe using ideas he had for The Lost Tales before that was abandoned? Alternatively it could be some other kind of behind the scenes materials.

    I can tell you that they're B5 related and that they're not the Crusade books.

    There! Look! You actually got a straight reply out of me! Of course, a certain quote about replies and answers could apply here...

    Jan

    ETA: Changed the subject line slightly because it sorta looked like Jason and I shared a last name.

    We Vorlon understudies phrase things very carefully.

    Uhm, if you say it's something "we never knew we wanted", does that imply it's not the Crusade books? But something else entirely? And I thought, now that the B5 TV movie script book was published, the B5 series had ended and my bank account could regenerate.

    You guys really know how to make us curious

    A few points of interest.

    The Crusade material will only be published after all the Babylon 5 material has been exhausted.
    Well, with the TV Scriptbook out, Crusade Scriptbooks should be next.

    What?!?!?! B5 Scriptbooks??? Another delay of the Crusade Scriptbooks??? If so, ARGH! JMS is EVIL!

    I'll be over in the corner chewing rebar and blowing bubbles with the steel.

    This is annoying. Ugh.

    Oh, not the information ... but that they're finally doing live shows again, and it's up against Lost.

    Thanks for the heads-up. And I so need an alarm clock that automatically takes into consideration the time difference - I always forget to set my alarm when I go to bed Wednesday night.
