    I just read the relevant chapter in the book. It has 4 pages on Crusade. I think some of that is information we already heard. Can't recall what was in Vol. 1. Maybe it would be too painful to go into the detail that a second volume would require. We got the short version, which may be all we need. From reading Becoming Superman, most of his TV projects appear to have some "What the Hell Happened?' moment.

    I think this a good move on JMS part.

    The subject came up during JMS' recent AMA on Reddit:


    The problem I ran into was that a lot of what would have ended up in that book was needed for the bio, and I didn't want to make fans pay twice for the same information. Coming at it with some new ideas to honor the intent of the fans.

    Also that some day the scripts themselves will be published, but there will never be the audio drama:

    Ah, that's a shame. Whilst the book held zero interest for me (I felt much of the material was already repeated and spread pretty thin in the previous volumes), I was fairly excited about the promised audio drama. Oh well.

    Hello,

    up for this thread.
    As mentionned on another thread :
    - 3 of the 4 Crusade books have been reprinted
    - The 4th, What the hell happened, hasn't

    BUT

    if you check the B5Books Catalog, it had an overall several days ago to reflect their complete catalog : https://b5books.com/babylon-5-books-catalog/
    Now what is interesting is that the Crusade section was altered so that the order of the book was changed.
    Until now, they were put chronogicaly by release date, BUT now, WTHH is put in last position, which is the logical position if... other books are coming soon

    Related, perhaps, but not really similar/the same. The post was about imagining re-doing the effects (iirc) and he pointed out that it's like asking somebody to imagine the cool clothes one's dead child could wear. In the past he's mentioned how he still got upset when revisiting that period.

    That was my understanding as well. It has been quite a while, so maybe costs are less. We should continue asking ...
