Want to Get the B5 Novels on Kindle? Say something. Indicate Demand.

It'd be great to get the B5 novels (not 1 thru 6 & 8) on Kindle. I don't know about you but a lot of my paperbacks are falling apart, paper yellowing and fragile.

I tweeted JMS yesterday ↓ about getting the B5 novels and short stories on Kindle, and I'm not expecting a reply from him or anybody else in the tweet. Who knows, he might have me muted (because I'm a conservative.). (shrug)


@straczynski
@AmazonKindle
@amazon
@AmazonHelp

I'd love to see #Babylon5 novels #7 The Shadow Within, #9 To Dream in the City of Sorrows, the three trilogies (Psi Corps, Centauri & Technomage) & the short stories available on Kindle.

Do you know of any way to make that happen?

I guess this would be more in the province of the publisher – was it Del Ray in the US? – and the authors. I think you can reach Jeanne Cavelos on Twitter via @OdysseyWorkshop, that might be a good place to start.

I wouldn't assume he'd block you for being conservative unless you were argumentative and not able to back up your stances intelligently with valid sources.

I would assume that the publisher would need to make an arrangement with WB and the authors. As I recall, JMS said not long ago that the copyrights for the short stories belonged to WB but I don't know if that would be the case for the novels.

I'd love to see it happen!

I know that JMS doesn't have me blocked. That, you can tell. Muted, you can't tell. It's extremely rare that I tweet anything to him and have never been argumentative.

Then it's kind of paranoid to even consider that you might be, IMO. Pretty sure he's got better things to do than pre-emptively mute conservatives.

Paranoid, no. I'm just a pessimist.

Moving back to seeing the books on Kindle. Does anyone think that would motivate me to sit down and read them? LOL

Seriously I NEED to do it, but I just never do it.

Kindle is GREAT. You can make notes, highlight and search within a book or through all of your books on Kindle. Ever wonder where you read something? Search. Search a name, e.g. Elizar and it'll show every page of every book where Elizar shows up, and in the context of its paragraph.

Get the kind with an internet connection. My Kindle Paperwhite has 3G and downloads a book in ~30 seconds. I have about 120 books on mine in about the space of 6" x 4" x "".
