Vir Finally Gets His Chance. Read on.


"Echoes" Companion
$34


Here's the scoop:

Early on, B5 Books had planned to post the master index for the entire 6 volumes ECHOES series for FREE because we didn't have the available page count to include an index in each of the books.

We are still going to post all the indexes (the master version and each volume-specific one) for FREE*, but we also realized that some folks don't want to print out 150+ pages of indexes.

So we decided to make the choice yours: Free, or Not Free.

The "Not Free" option is to order the ECHOES COMPANION (ships Wednesday), which includes these 150+ pages of indexes along with over 100 more pages of bonuses that are exclusive to the printed book.

THE BIGGEST BONUS OF THEM ALL...
Releasing a seventh volume allowed Stephen Furst--the only remaining star from Babylon 5 who appeared in all five seasons--to sign this volume. This means that fans who have the entire series will also have the signature of all surviving Babylon 5 stars who appeared in four or more seasons of the show: Peter Jurasik, Bruce Boxleitner, Claudia Christian, Mira Furlan, Jerry Doyle, Bill Mumy and Stephen Furst.

To make the print option affordable to everyone, we got permission to drastically reduce the price of this volume. This means the ECHOES COMPANION is $34.

SPECIFICALLY, WHAT IS IN THE PRINT EDITION?

Comprehensive Index for All Six Volumes

108 pages, 2,387 entries and 11,949 references. When you want to find all instances of a person, place or episode across the entire series, this is the document to use.


Index for Each Volume
These stand-alone indexes function as granular tables of contents, roadmaps for each volume, with quick access to the information you most want to learn more about, without having to plow through the 100+ pages of the master index. Averaging 12 pages--each in a condensed layout--these indexes are more manageable than the master. BONUS FUN: After you read a volume, quiz yourself by reading that volume's index.


Babylonian Production Timeline
Available exclusively in the print edition. This never-before-seen document was compiled by ECHOES Editor Jason Davis as a guide for his personal use, but the details and insights were too good to keep it in the vault.

BY-CATEGORY TABLE OF CONTENTS
Available exclusively in the print edition. These category-specific tables group each interview subject by his or her occupation and then provide a chronological list of each interview across all six volumes. This lets you move quickly through the series one topic at a time, giving you fresh perspectives on the making of Babylon 5.

Illustrated Interview Index

Never-Before-Published: Set Plans
Available exclusively in the print edition. These four set plans--one each for Stages A, B and C, as well as a diagram illustrating how the stages were arranged in the Sun Valley warehouse where Babylon 5 and Crusade were filmed--show you where the sets were in relation to each other during the early days of season five. When the folks interviewed refer to the stages (which they often do) you will be able to SEE what they are talking about.
