New Mongoose B5 Books. Canon?

Post by Sindatur »

Mongoose has put out news of new B5 novels, again, stating they are canon and have JMS' blessing. This all blew up earlier this year, and turned out not to be quite true, as JMS was unable to come to an agreement with them. Now it's coming up again. JMS has given them a second chance, saying he wants no fees or anything, just wants to see for himself that the novels are canon, and that the are up to the quality of writing of the previous novels. Well, he got some stuff submitted to him, and he feels the quality is simply not there, and that there is better fan fiction out on the net. Therefore, he is washing his hands of the deal, and says the Mongoose novels are between WB and Mongoose.

The fact that JMS said no fee means to me that he honestly doesn't like the quality. So it is encouraging about the available stories.
