The Babylon Project

Unique to the Babylon 5 universe is the sanctioned canonicity of many of its offshoot novels and comic books and short stories; nearly all of the Babylon 5 novels and novelizations to date having been based on outlines written directly by JMS. Four of the six Short Stories published in "Amazing Stories Magazine" and the "Official Babylon 5 Magazine" were written by series creator, J. Michael Straczynski and they are all considered canon. To date (as of May 2009) these stories have never been reprinted in any other format and can only be found in their original publications.
