My comconsole brought me this letter from Andrew Barton:

>> I know this is probably common news already, but I'm just repeating it
>> for those who might not have heard.  This is the note that JMS posted on
>> Usenet Saturday.

AB> I've seen the same report on another list, which drew this response:

>> I first saw this item on Saturday evening.
>> Since then there has been no mention _anywhere_ of this except for quoting
>> the above e-mail.  Not Variety, not New York Times or L.A. Times, not CNN,
>> not Yahoo news, not E! On-line.  Sources you would expect to have an
>> announcement, but who are likely to check facts.

>> Somebody may very well be perpetrating a nasty hoax.  I'm not a B5 fan at
>> all, but I have shared panels with Biggs, and he is a very pleasant man.

AB> So far all attempts to confirm the news have failed.

Lack of news online is really strange. But I would think that it is really
a hoax somebody would have let know JMS and the rest of the B5
