B5 script books... and finally revelations

Posted by dormouse (13th Sep 2005, 11:02) -

Been a while since there's been a B5 post this interesting :D And it's not April 1...

All JMS's scripts are going to be released as trade paperbacks, 14 volumes of 7 scripts, + a 15th free to people who have bought them all (it's not separately buyable). They each include ~30 pages of commentary and behind the scenes stories. The 15th contains some early versions of episodes, the B5 writers bible, and *an outline of how the arc would have gone if Sinclair had stayed*.


The first volume is unusual in containing the very first version of the Gathering, which is quite different to either version we've seen. He gives lots more details in the post.

The scripts will be cheaper if bought the first week they come out. For all 15 volumes: "if copies are purchased as the script books first come online, the full set would cost around $420; if purchased after the discount period, we're talking about $560" - no mention of international pricing yet, but it will be available.

Eek. That's not cheap. But on the other hand, it would be such a great thing to own for the library...

( - is also valid - now has form for email signup (to know when they go properly live; it says October)

Also: "Should these first volumes go as planned, then we will look to release more down the road, including "Crusade.""
