Babylon 5 20th Anniversary: Visual Celebration Book!

This is a type of book that I know as a huge B5 fan have been waiting for quite some time. It looks like it will become available next month from B5 Books.com and if you're going to Phoenix Con you can pick up copies??? This looks simply beautiful.

Read the description. Even for a skinflint like me... it's worth that price.

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

I think it's a great idea that folks attending Phoenix Comicon will be able to order early and pick their book up there. Can't wait to see it in person!

Wow, that looks really nice. They clearly put a look of work into it and it shows. I might just have to pick that up.

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

I'm so getting this. I have always regretted not getting the script books.

I definitely want to get this. The only B5 book I own is "Creating Babylon 5" from 1997 which only covers seasons 1-4.

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

I was floored by the price, but as Neroon stated this is going to be worth it. I've been waiting for a book like this since the end of the series. I've regretted not being able to get the scriptbooks as well, so this is going to be awesome to get.

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

Yeah, this volume is a must-have item for me. I didn't buy the script or echoes books as I don't have unlimited shelf space. This book is relatively expensive but I think it's worth it.

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

For me Babylon 5 wasn't a visual experience. The visuals helped convey the narrative, and not much more. I'm not really interested in the book.

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

I heard that JMS was getting a bunch of the Crusade actors together to record some of the unfilmed scripts for release on audio CD. Anyone heard any more about that?

I hadn't heard anything about that at all? Sounds very appetizing, I read two of the Unfilmed scripts, and they were great, the show got cut right before it really opened up and hit it's stride. An Audio continuation would be a most welcome addition to Crusade

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

From an email that I received from B5 books last March 19:

ALERT #1
CRUSADE UPDATE

WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED?, Volume 2 is planned for release after the re-launch of B5books.com.

J. Michael Straczynski, being painfully aware of the lag in the CRUSADE book release schedule, is putting together a "thank you for your patience" bonus that makes it worth the wait: he's producing his two unfilmed CRUSADE episodes as audio dramas with "voices the fans are familiar with." The audio drama episodes are "To the Ends of the Earth" and "The End of the Line".

Since neither of these unproduced scripts are in Volume 2, one CD will be included FREE with Volume 3 of WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED? and the other CD FREE with Volume 4.

Reminder: ALL CRUSADE books will be available until the HELL series is complete.
ETA: I'm not sure I want to spend £20 per script book to obtain each of those CDs. I'd willingly pay say £5 to download MP3 versions, however.

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

NOTE that all we've been told is that voices will be familiar. That may or MAY NOT include Crusade actors. For example, we know that Pat Tallman, Claudia Christian, Bruce Boxleitner and Robin Atkin Downes all do voice work and I imagine others in the cast I'm not aware of.
