Briefly Live among the Dead,
This review is from: Day of the Dead: A Babylon5 Scriptbook (Paperback)
This is an episode script for the TV show Babylon 5 written by Neil Gaiman. It was great to see a different version of one of my favorite episodes. This script has footnotes in it from Neil about what and why and where things came from. This script also has an introduction by JMS that includes the phrase, "So you will understand why Neil Gaiman bugs the hell out of me." The introduction does, in fact, explain why Neil bugs the hell out of Joe and of course does so in a charming way. The footnotes are fascinating. Did I mention that already?
Also note that if you are wanting to get a hold of a copy, the best way is to go to Neil Gaiman.net. (Scroll just over half way down the books page and there it is.) Neil's commercial website, that's run by his local sci-fi/comic shop called DreamHaven Books and Comics. Copies of this script are $5 and priority mailed in wonderful packaging. It's really okay to trust these people with Neil's books. Even the autographed and/or first editions that you can get from them. The autographs are very definitely THE REAL THING and if it's a non-first edition you're looking for, they don't even charge extra.
Added bonus, the footnotes are fun to read, much like having Neil commenting in your ear as you're reading. Or have I already told you about the footnotes?
