The epic sci-fi series Babylon 5 was a unique experiment in the history of television. It was effectively a novel for television in five seasons, consisting of 110 episodes with a clear beginning, middle, and end. The first season introduced characters and plot points that developed and evolved over the whole 5 seasons.

A feature of the Babylon 5 Universe is the sanctioned canonicity of many of its offshoot novels; nearly all of the Babylon 5 novels and novelizations to date having been based on outlines written directly by JMS.

All the published, licensed Babylon 5 tie-in novels and stories have been collected here and edited into epub format.

For extras I have included the Mongoose stories as they were licensed though not officially endorsed by JMS. Also, Claudia Christian's memoir and story. Finally, I included the Crusade script JMS released showing what the last episode of season 1 Crusade would have been.

Just wanted say thanks to kwaka for posting the B5 books. Awesome collection. I am huge fan of the show but living on very modest means so I was very happy to discover this on the net, I especially appreciated the recommended reading order as I'm sure it will enhance the reading experience. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in continuing the journey into the B5 universe.
