Just a word to let any folks who might be interested know that I'll be a guest
at WonderCon in San Francisco the weekend of April 25th. They've got me on a
fair number of panels and a spotlight, plus some autograph sessions. This is
the first San Francisco convention I've done in many years, and it may be a
while before the next one 'cause I only do one or two a year (WonderCon is run
by the xame cool folks who run San Diego Comic Con).

Info at wondercon.com

Just FYI.

One last item on this...and I'll also post this separately as well...a lot of
folks have noted that this is the tenth anniversary of B5 going live, so at the
convention in SF there will be a limited number of signed scripts for the
Babylon 5 series finale, "Sleeping in Light" for sale.

This script includes deleted dialogue (lots of it), and at least one deleted
scene, and the alternate ending(s).

Just for those who might be interested....

I think I need to clarify this lest the wrong idea be communicated....

It's not an alternate ending in terms of, say, showing Delenn skiing at the end
instead of being on the bench...but when the script was written, it kind of
ended three times...the bench scene was one, then there was another small scene
after that, and one more at the end of *that*. Not big scenes, just little
frissons...one being fairly funny. It's about 3 pages worth of material, which
would've been about 3-4 minutes of screen time.

Just in the interests of clarity. Among the deleted material is a very funny
scene with the new commander of B5 when he gets the news about who's about to
come on board,a longer version of the talk between Ivanova and the Ranger who
comes with the news (and a bit of added business at the end of the scene
involving her aide), that sort of thing.
