    Just a quick update on the progress of the first of the new “Prisoner” novels…

    * J. Michael Straczynski (multiple Hugo winner, creator of “Babylon 5”, Spider-Man writer, childhood hero of mine thanks to “The Real Ghostbusters”, and huge Prisoner fan) is doing the introduction to “The Prisoner’s Dilemma”!

    * The prologue to “Prisoner’s Dilemma” (the first novel, written by me and Rupert Booth) has just been posted at http://www.powysmedia.com . Looking forward to your comments!

    The book is now scheduled for a late-summer release, in both the US and UK; Powys will be announcing the date as soon as they’re certain there won’t be any last-minute slippages. Expect it to be available for pre-order in a few weeks’ time!

    Cheers,
    Jon Blum

    Great news, Jon, you should put that in the “Submit News” module so it will be on the front page of the site for the next few weeks instead of buried in the Prisoner forum where the B5 lurkers might miss it….

    EYE AM KNOT A NUMBER AYE AMA FREE MAN SCRIBBLE CRICKET!!

    There. That’s how big a geek I am, but that’s the only non-arguable Pris reference I found on B5. Everything else looks coincidental to me. (Well, except for the Psi-Corps salute.) Too bad he never got the Paddy on the show. Sigh.

    Anyhoo, the opener already has a better hook, IMHO, than Disch, congrats!

Humanity now lives in a mobile fortress called Deca-Dence which protects humans from the Gadoll attacks.

Gleipnir Episode 1 Review (Spring 2020 Anime)

Shuichi Kagaya is a bit of a wimpy high school student with a secret - he's a part time monster! His monster form is a giant cuddly toy 'costume' (complete with large zipper at the back). He also has a great sense of smell. One day, he rescues a damsel in distress, a half naked teen girl stranded in a burning warehouse. This sly and sexy Kurea "Claire" Aoki is also not who she seems. They soon form an unlikely alliance to kill monsters and help Claire find her sister. (Gleipnir Episode Review)
