A brief word from the author....
In 1981, I wrote and published, via WD Books, the kind of book that I wished someone had written when I was trying to break into writing for the media (television, film, radio and other venues). My hope was that the book would give others that leg-up in a terribly difficult field. The original edition of the book sold almost 40,000 copies and became one of WD Books' all time best sellers...and a standard text at a number of colleges and universities. Subsequent to its publication, I heard from many writers who managed to break into the business using the book, which made all the effort worthwhile. But the business changes...and after about 5 years, I let the book go out of print until I could afford the time to revise it, make it more current, more useful (what's the point otherwise?). The "revised" edition became the "rewritten" edition. Over the course of the last 4 years, I've revised the book stem to stern, totally rewriting nearly every chapter, and adding about 100,000 words to the book, with updated information and chapters on agents, animation, and other new areas. The book also contains the Hugo-Award winning script for the BABYLON 5 episode, "The Coming of Shadows." It is my hope that you will enjoy the book. I intended for it to be useful, and to be an enjoyable read. Good luck with your own writing. I hope THE COMPLETE BOOK OF SCRIPTWRITING will light your path just a little on that voyage. J. Michael Straczynski Author, THE COMPLETE BOOK OF SCRIPTWRITING Writer/Producer, BABYLON 5, MURDER SHE WROTE and others
