    Alas, my cats probably wouldn't allow it. Pity, too...cause I could probably get you to do dishes and floors!

        KoshN, you'd be surprised how cheap you can get the black script books on the second hand market. I got many volumes on eBay for between $20-$30 a piece. The most expensive was Vol. 15, and even that wasn't too insane considering what I've seen it go for. it took me around a year to collect the whole series, admittedly I did have help from Jan, who kindly helped me source some of the volumes I was having trouble getting in the UK.

        Kosh: Good!

          I'll have to take an inventory of which ones I do have, and keep an eye out for the rest (No, NOT like G'Kar! ). I may have a few more than I thought. My collection isn't exactly organized right now.

            • Was listening to the interview with Michael, Bruce and an unidentified English sounding female that came with book two, they mentioned another actor who was lead on a certain show, but I didn't catch the name of the show and they don't mention the actor's name, could Joe or perhaps our Empress Jan let me know whom they were talking about?

              • The woman speaking was Sheelagh Wells. She's married to journalist Joe Nazzaro and was assisting him with the interview.

                I don't have the CD handy, but I suspect she was speaking about Gareth Thomas of BLAKE'S 7. Sheelagh had been the makeup designer on that show and co-wrote a book on the making of the series with Nazzaro.

                  • so while reading volume 2 I came across the interview with Richard Biggs, where he says he's imagining what kind of actor he was going to be at 50 or 60... Made me rather sad.

                    If opportunities come along for you folks, grab them, because you just never know when the ride will stop and you have to get off.

                    Still bright in memory Richard.

                      I had to stop editing the book for the afternoon when I came across that one.

                      • so I've finished volume two and have moved on to volume three, some of the interviewees did *not* have nice things to say about Joe (booo. hiss) but be that as it may. I noticed on the interview with HArlan Ellison there's a little "R" in a circle after his name, has he actually registered it as a trademark?

                        Jason, I'm looking at you here.... Just as I was on the evening of "stump the editor"

                          I'm not Jason, but yes, Harlan's name is trademarked. He's mentioned it many times on his website. From Wiki:

                          He had his own name trademarked in 2005, registered by The Kilimanjaro Corporation, which Ellison owns, and under which all his work is copyrighted.

                          • So an observation and a question I suppose, mostly directed at our errant interviewer, Joe.

                            I've noticed the audio clips get longer and longer, a ten minute interview with Andreas on Disc one, a 30 minute one on disc two and the full 74 minutes multiple cast interview on disc three (point to note, Jerry Doyle swears a lot). I am impressed by the audio cleanup though as it sounds like there was a *lot* of background noise must have been a nightmare to fix it up as well as it is.

                            My question for interviewer Joe, is there any chance, any chance at all, of the original interview tapes being released. I, for one, would pay to hear them.

                            If you need to reply in PM feel free to do so, I will keep anything private which needs to be.

                            • sorry to drag this thread from the depths of the archive but I ofund something today.
                              I was looking forlornly at book 3 of "echoes" on my shelf at my current, temporary home in the north side of dublin. My dad was complaining about the stuff Iv'e got stored in his snooker room so tonight I went looking and found a box with a cafe press shipping label on the side
                              inside were the folowing
                              still sealed and in plastic: echoes voluems 1,2 and 4 thorugh 6
                              two deadpool graphic novels
                              the compleat ankh morprok a kind of map.atlas thing to discworlds biggest (and possibly worst) city.
                              I'm a happy little phaze now.

                                Ha. That's cool. I still need to finish reading the Echoes series, some of mine are still sealed. Hangs head in shame!
