  • Changes to B5 Books

    Newsletter from the 'Bridge':

    May 20th, 2016

    Greetings from the Bridge --

    Effective immediately, B5 Books is no longer associated with CafePress. We will be moving our current catalog to....Amazon.com.

    Check your email next week for specifics but know that it's all good news (aka no downside) for B5 fans.

    To celebrate the move we have launched a new website at B5books.com. Don't miss the "search the indexes of our books" feature in the nav bar.

    And...to kick it all off, read our first behind-the-scenes article by B5 Books Senior Editor Jason Davis - "Whatever Happened to Delenn's Gravity Ring?"

    To visit the new site now click here:
    http://www.B5books.com

    Questions? Hit reply or email us at [email protected].

      Color me surprised.

      But it does make a lot of sense. Print on demand publishing has made tremendous leaps since the B5 Scripts project started and Amazon is probably at the forefront of that.

        Man, I completely missed this until it was posted elsewhere.

        An investor's sold some of their complete sets back to B5 books and Capt. Jaclyn's making them available.

        Not that I think anybody here doesn't have most or all of these but it's sweet nevertheless.

          I don't have any of them. Could never afford. Does that mean I'm not really here?

          I'm probably not here at all. In fact, I don't even exist except in the mind of a hallucinogenic turtle, currently climbing Mt Everest on the back of Frankenstein's goat.

          Awesome new site! I loved the article about Delenn and the gravity rings, and the cone of silence!

            What was that?? I thought there was a post and then there wasn't...most strange... (drat! Spoiler tagging a quote doesn't work)

              I don't even think POD makes that much sense for B5 Books any more, given they know their audience and roughly what demand will be. I *think* it's still far cheaper to print a medium to large run of books than it is to use POD. Plus, you get the bonus of higher production values. Although, I'm sure that's come on a bit too in terms of POD.

              I was, and still am a bit befuddled by a 'limited availability' POD product anyway.The two concepts seem completely contradictory.

              The move to Amazon seems like a positive one though.
