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

There's been a lot of excitement about the Babylon 5 at 20 book that was announced last month. Due to the number of people interested in pre-ordering, that's been opened up earlier than planned: http://www.cafepress.com/_b5books Books will ship by June 30.

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

I'm still on the fence--Babylon 5 has always been about the writing to me and I love the show in spite of its visuals... At the same time, it would make a nice companion piece to all the script books.

Decisions, decisions.

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

I'm sure there are valid economic reasons for its price, but this is yet another B5 book I can't bring myself to spend that much money for.

I completely understand that. There have been several books which I could not "pull the trigger" on. This one feels different, somehow.

I don't disagree, but I just don't have sixty plus quid lying around. Being poor sucks.

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

Regarding pre-ordering the B520 book: There's been concern from some folks who don't have (or don't want) PayPal accounts. It's not terribly obvious, but you *can* pay by credit card even without an account. See this from Captain Jaclyn:

I pre-ordered my copy today. Unfortunately, the link in the email was incorrect, but b5books.com got me there.

OK, how sad is it that while watching the ad on youtube, I actually managed to detect a few mistakes/omissions at a glance? This is why I stopped editing the wiki. I swear having too much trivial crap on the brain starts to push out actual useful knowledge after a while!
