    That was a good one. Too bad it was a joke, I was looking forward to hearing about "Jane the ISN imbeded correspondent," or was that "Jan"?

    Now that the first of the two Crusade books is ready for print, I thought IÆd jump in with a quick update on them.


    Regarding the delay of the two Crusade booksàitÆs the B5 tradition.
    You can tell someone about B5 and Crusade folks, but until they see what follows, itÆs like trying to tell someone about Hurricane Katrina coming inàyou donÆt really understand what that means until it comes to your front door. The Script books team has been hustling like crazy to produce other books, until I could get around to telling the story about Crusade.


    For me, on a personal basis, itÆs been an amazing process to go back in time, through the memos, scripts and photos, and re-live it. And then, when itÆs done, the final tale will at last be told in its entiretyàthe show, the good, the bad, and the show *behind* the show.


    IÆve been very pleased that so many folks who have received the Babylon 5 volumes have said great things about the them. Though, bear in mind that there is a ceiling on how long these final Crusade script books will be available at www.babylon5scripts.com so get in while the Cafe Press price breaks will give you maximum benefit.


    After the Asked and Answered series is released in April and finished in August, The first Crusade book should release around Labor Day. The volume 2 should be out somewhere around Thanksgiving, which has all the cool stuff through ôEach Night I Dream of Homeö, with all the info about how Fred Dryer almost ended up as the captain of the Excalibur, the ôshow orderö controversy, and several characters such as Jane the ISN imbeded correspondent, who were going to be in the show as regulars but werenÆt.


    Since I know a lot of folks were curious about potential material, IÆve also found a couple dozen one-paragraph to multi-page premises for episodes (and other cool stuff) that never made it to full script.


    Crusade will also be the first set of script books to be offered electronically. After resisting electronic publishing, I thought, ôWhat the hell, letÆs try it.ö It will be available through iTunes and AmazonÆs kindle (A cute little device that I have been enjoying.)


    I have to be honestàIÆm enjoying the hell out of this joke.

    The Crusade books will be out anon.

    ** This was a joke, and only a joke, jms is too busy writing. Had this been the actual Crusade announcement, Jan, Jacyln, or Jason from the scripts book team would have been announcing it. **

    Happy April Fools Day!
