Re: Babylon 5 20th Anniversary: Visual Celebration Book!

I just received this about the book:

B5-20 Book Shipping Status

We wanted to give you a shipping update on your B5-20 book which was scheduled to ship by this Sunday, June 30. Our revised ship by date is now two days later, Tuesday, July 2nd.

Due to a 7-day customs delay (unheard of!) at the Port of Los Angeles the books were finally released at 5:12pm, today, Friday.

To make up for lost time, we had a fleet of trucks standing by, each with TWO drivers so they can travel to Louisville, Kentucky -- 2,085 miles (3,356km) -- without stopping. Think "Smokey and the Bandit meets Babylon 5".

The fleet is due to arrive at Cafepress Monday morning, July 1.

Even with the customs delay, because we commissioned two drivers per truck and authorized them drive on a weekend ($$$!) we expect all the books to ship by Tuesday, July 2nd.

You will receive tracking information via an email from Cafepress.

If you ordered more than one book, you will get an email for EACH book since each book is being shipped separately and each has its own tracking number.

You will hear from us again on Monday, just to let you know that the fleet arrived safely and the books are being processed for shipment.

In the meantime, the B5 Books Team will be at the office all weekend just to respond to your emails if you have any concerns or questions. To reach us either reply to this update or email us at

When we say we're sorry, we really mean it.
