JMS: Saved by Superman

Not sure if this is already common knowledge, but HarperCollins are going to be publishing JMS' memoirs next year.

Re: JMS: Saved by Superman

Hate waiting till 2019 but this is great news. It's certain to break our hearts, given some of the stories he's told in the past.

I will use this forum to express my dissatisfaction at the fact that this announcement was made now instead of closer to April 6, my first date in the Skywatch game. I wouldn't want Melanie to read my jealous words. LOL


Will I buy this book? Probably
Will I read this book? Probably not.

I believe I have said this before, there is such a thing as knowing too much about a person - I still haven't been able to bring myself to finish Babylon Confidential. Not that I dislike Claudia at all. It just seems like there is such a thing as knowing too much about someone who you put on a pedestal and this upcoming book might do that.

Re: JMS: Saved by Superman

Can't blame you for not finishing 'Babylon Confidential'. There was *way* too much information there. I'm thinking that 'Saved by Superman' (love that title) will be more like stories JMS has told in the past only possibly more so. Like his recent post about Christmas.

Re: JMS: Saved by Superman

I wonder when Superman actually appears in the book. I admit that has me curious, so I might read up to that point.

That is really great news. I'd say it's about time, he's had such a widely spanning career and didn't exactly have an ideal childhood. HIs biography could really inspire a lot of people, especially kids who are not in a good place.
