The JMS CIS Digest

J. Michael Straczynski is the creator and executive producer of the superb Science Fiction television series Babylon 5, which has won two consecutive Hugo awards (1996 and 1997), and the spinoff series Crusade. He also wrote 91 out of the 110 episodes in Babylon 5's five seasons, including 60 episodes in a row: a record for dramatic television series.

Unusually for someone in his position, he is also an active and long-time member of the online community and participates regularly in the Usenet newsgroup, the Compuserve Babylon5 forum, and the AOL Babylon5 message area.

I collect all of the messages he posts to the Compuserve (CIS) forum, along with the messages from other Compuserve users to which he is replying (with their permission, of course), and compile these messages into a Digest which is delivered to various Usenet newsgroups and mailing lists at least daily. An archive of the Digests posted to Usenet can be found at Deja News.

With the cancellation of the Crusade series, the volume on the Compuserve forum has whithered away to nothing. As of May 1, 2000 I am no longer looking for any traffic there.

The JMS CIS Digest Administrivia is available here, and is only included in the Digest when it changes and for a few days at the top of each month.

The Digest is posted to these Usenet newsgroups:

If you want somebody else to do all of the work, I suggest you subscribe to the B5JMS Mailing List, which carries the Digest as well as all of JMS' Usenet posts, AOL and GEnie posts (irregularly), and transcripts of Compuserve live conferences.
