Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

Okay. I feel much better now.

I guess I'll buy vol 13, even though I currently have only through #5, to take advantage of that $10 off.

I want to try and save a little money here!

Do you just claim it when you place your order?

And can you pre-order and still get the $10 off?

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

The $10 off is already there when you go to order. They set the price at $29 instead of $39 for the first week.

Unfortunately, there's no way to pre-order. Lots of us just wanted to 'subscribe' when the series started but it's beyond Cafe Press' capabilities given how the POD model works. I asked about it a while back and CP can't assign a product number until the manuscript is actually uploaded (if I understood correctly).

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

Thanks, Jan!

Can you buy it now or is there an updated ETA?

I want to make sure I don't miss any of the remaining deadlines in order to reduce cost a bit.

The $10 discount for Vol. 13 is still in effect, since it just was released yesterday. I'd head over there ASAP, just to be sure you made it in time. The release for Vol. 14 isn't known at this time, or at least...... jms hasn't said anything to that effect.

And the longer the wait the better. I'd love to get my hands on volume 15, but it's going to take me a bit to be able to buy up every script book. As an aside, my roommate, who's a screenwriting major, has expressed interest in taking a look at one of the script books. I'm very curious how he'll react to them (he'll be seeing volume 13), since he's never seen the show.

Have your roommate check out this item: The Complete Book of Scriptwriting, by J. Michael Straczynski

I've been meaning to pick up that book for years, but never have had the chance. I bet the library here has it--I'll have to give it a gander this weekend.

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

What is nice about it is that it's not tailored to the B5 fan. It really is geared towards the person who is serious about learning how to write scripts. Now, it uses a B5 episode as a model ("The Coming of Shadows" if memory serves), but it is not exactly something B5 geeks will gush over.

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

According to the website, March is the target for Volume 14 and JMS should be able to make it, I'd think, assuming the writer's strike isn't settled soon.

Hirogen Alpha, I think your roommate will enjoy the script books on a purely professional basis even if he's not interested in the show yet. JMS is telling a lot about his thinking processes and about television making and the tricks he used to stay on budget... The "Complete Book of Scriptwriting" will tell your roommate about structure and contracts and professionalism and the script books will tell about telling a good story. I'd love to hear what your roommate says when s/he reads the scripts and watches the show. It's fascinating to me on an amatuer basis.

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

Definitely. The combination of the scriptbook(s) along with the "The Complete Book of Scriptwriting" would make for a potent combination. The one provides the more formal instruction, while the other gives you a nice variety of examples and "behind the scenes" look at how it worked for jms.

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

Thanks very much, Neroon.

I think you're right - I'd better order it tonight while it's still on my mind. Otherwise I'll likely forget.

By the way, I see that The Corps is Mother, The Corps is Father is in this one. Too bad we won't have our copies in time for Saturday night.

I think I'll get another couple of the books to save on the postage. Then I'll get a couple more with each of the two remaining releases and I'll be done.

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

Only one more release, PKTrekGirl. Volume 14 is the end of the 14 volume series and Volume 15 is the free volume. You won't order that, you'll send in the proof of purchase form.

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

Oh! So I need to keep all my receipts then? The one from last week for 1-5 and my next ones which will cover 6-14 in some combination?

Glad the last one is free!

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

Jan, I believe that earlier it was established that all you needed to provide to get Vol. 15 was the order numbers from each of the previous 14 orders.

Just confirmed it, as I found my original email from the Scripts Team. It said:

Easing the Proof-of-Purchase Requirement



We have eased the proof of purchase requirement to earn your free Volume 15.

The only information you will be asked to submit are your order numbers. In other words you are NOT required to state the unique identifier found on the backs of each volume, as previously stated.

You can always get an instant listing of all your order numbers by visiting CafePress.com and clicking on the "Where's My Order" button on the homepage. This button also gives you a history of all your order numbers.



REMEMBER: VOLUME 15 IS NOT FOR SALE. It will only go out FREE OF CHARGE to those who pick up the full 14 volume set.

And when we say free, we mean free. Even postage and handling will be covered (including international fans). All you have to do is mail in your proof of purchase that lists all your order number.

Final production draft for "The Gathering."

The infamous "Star Trek-reminiscent" lost draft of "Soul Hunter."

The even MORE infamous practical joke script featuring G'Kar and Londo as lovers.

Alternate draft of "And the Sky, Full of Stars."

The Babylon 5 Bible.

The memo from JMS to Warner Bros. describing the 5 year arc with Sinclair still present.

Even more personal photos from JMS's private collection.
I presume that when Vol. 14 is sent out, they will include information on just HOW to get your order numbers to Cafe Press. It will either be then or perhaps when Vol. 15 is ready.
