Click the “Read More” link for the whole message…
A number of items here, of varying timeliness and relevance.
As some have noted, Bookface.com is now an ex-website. For those wanting to get their hands on Tribulations, the book is still available from darktales.com. There are no plans currently to put the book up anywhere else
Rising Stars 12 and Midnight Nation 5 came out a few weeks ago (would’ve made more mention of this but it’s been kinda hectic here lately on a number of fronts).
(And speaking of comics stuff, Crusade writer and B5 Reference Editor Fiona Avery wrote the script for the X-Men Annual 2000, which came out last week from Marvel. Her own series, No Honor, will debut from Top Cow late February. Folks can keep up on her stuff at www.fionaavery.com)
My first draft screenplay for the Rising Stars movie went in on Christmas day, and the studio reaction has been EXTREMELY positive. I can’t say more about this at the moment, but things are looking very good for the long haul on this.
I’ve turned in 4 scripts for new City of Dreams episodes, but due to production tie-ups on other projects at Seeing Ear Theater, they won’t be up at www.scifi.com/cityofdreams until around the first week of February.
Finally…and you’ll have to forgive the vagueness of this…B5 fans may want to keep their ears to the ground for the next few weeks. There are several things that have been simmering for a while now, which I haven’t commented on because I wanted them to be realities, not possibilities, before I said anything. I think the former may finally be working out…so keep an eye on this newsgroup for the next few weeks. There may be a number of interesting announcements.
