Re: JMS: Saved by Superman

JMS has made some announcements regarding his autobiography coming out in July. First, some conventions where he'll be promoting the book:

Supercon at Miami Florida, July 4th weekend

San Diego Comic Con, weekend of July 18th

Raleigh Supercon, North Carolina, weekend of July 25th.

Terrificon, Connecticut, weekend of August 9th.

And the big news is that he's announced the reader for the audiobook version of "Becoming Superman": Peter Jurasik! (no, not in Londo-voice)

No, but seriously it has to be in Londo's voice. I am certain the book begins with "I was there" so it has to be in Londo's voice.

Looney, darling - you know I love you right? Please, please believe me when I tell you that it would be *hideously* inappropriate. Honest! I've read it twice now.

See why would I want to read that?! Why would I want to hear some horrible tale of woe?! What if it taints my view of Babylon 5 or him?! (I would use BABYLON CONFIDENTIAL as an example, but it did neither. It didn't taint my view of CC or Ivanova or Babylon 5. That doesn't mean I necessarily loved it. It was a little TMI.)

Let's just say that it's a good thing going in that we know it has a happy ending. No, no TMI-certainly not to the extent of Claudia's book- but yes, a good bit of it about his family is pretty sickening. Fair warning. Here's my review if it helps.
