DIRK BENEDICT ON SCI-FI VORTEX: Watch the Sci-Fi Channel this weekend to see their special Battlestar Galactica edition. The guests will include Richard (Apollo) Hatch, Anne (Sheba) Lockheart, creator Glen Larson and Dirk (Starbuck) Benedict. Sci-Fi Vortex airs 10am Eastern Standard Time.
MOVIE UPDATE: Nothing earth-shattering or unexpected, but there was apparently a short piece on the movie on Access Hollywood this week. Basically it was cofirmed that the original cast will only be offered likely cameos, the main parts have been recast (did not say by who) and that a script had been submitted. Stay tuned...
A-TEAM LENDING LIBRARY OFFICIALLY OPEN FOR BUSINESS - Well, after teasing you all with this for a few weeks, we're ready to get this project started. The Lending Library's objective to is allow everyone on this mailing list access to in-print and out-of-print A-Team fanzines, letterzines, and all other forms of printed material related to the A-Team. Our collection at this point is on the small side, but we figured to start loaning out what we have now, hoping that this would encourage more people to donate funds for adding more materials to the library. Here is the breakdown of how the Library works, and the current collection list:

The library collection catalog is attached below. The collection is constantly growing so to request an updated catalog, email Denise at DDMESSER%[email protected]. (Note- Denise is the Librarian - NOT ME. I'm just collecting the funds and doing the copying at this point.)

Users are allowed to borrow at most 3 items at a time. To borrow titles from the library:

1. Email Denise at DDMESSER%[email protected] with your choices.

2. Denise will get back to you to confirm
(a) that the titles you requested are currenly in the library (b) how much postage will cost. Materials will be mailed 2-day Priority Mail.

3. Send Denise
(a) 1 check or money order to cover postage. Make checks payable to Denise Messer (b) an SASE for the return of your deposit check (c) a separate check or money order as a deposit on the materials you are borrowing.

Materials are loaned out for a period of 3 weeks, maximum. Please return the 'zines to Denise as soon as you are finished with them so that other people can enjoy them (and you can borrow more stuff!) Once your borrowed 'zines are returned, your deposit check will be returned - unless you would just like to leave it on hold at the library, a good choice if you intend to be a frequent user. Deposit checks will only be cashed if a 'zine is lost or returned in a damaged state and requires replacement.

Abbreviations in the current catalog:

AT = A-Team
BG = Battlestar Galactica
GEN = "generic" fanzine - no adult material, no age statement required.
* = out-of-print title, to our knowledge
3 THE A-FILES 10.00 AT & X-Files, GEN 116
16 THE A-TEAM FILE #1 5.50 *AT, GEN 51
17 THE A-TEAM FILE #2 5.50 *AT, GEN 53
18 THE A-TEAM FILE #3 5.50 *AT, GEN 55
19 THE A-TEAM FILE #4 5.50 *AT, GEN 54
13 ABOUT FACE 5.50 *AT, GEN (Face focus) 55
15 FACE THE ENEMY 5.50 *AT, BG GEN (Face focus) 51
12 FACE THE MUSIC 6.50 *AT, BG GEN (Face focus) 68
10 FACE VALUE 5.50 *AT, GEN (Face focus) 52
11 LOSING FACE 5.50 *AT, BG GEN (Face focus) 50
8 NEW IN TOWN, SAILOR 9.00 AT unaired script 97
9 PLAY IT AGAIN, MURDOCK 11.50 AT unaired script 126
Much more will be added in coming weeks. Current Library balance for copying purposes is $46.01 - figure that will allow us to add around 400 pages or to the current collection - but there's a lot more out there we need money for if we're going to add to the Library.

To become a libary sponsor, email [email protected] or snail mail Nicole Pellegrini, 2429 Locust Street #315, Philadelphia PA 19103. This collection is only possible because of the support of our sponsors. If you have a specific title or type of 'zine you'd like to sponsor, please indicate as much. Otherwise the money will be used at our discretion.

The following people have made the Lending Library Collection possible by their donations and support - Crystal Cochran, Kathleen Coyle, Donna Ferrara, Jacqueline Giacomo, Bridget Kelly, Michele Martin, Robin Ryder, Mary Sauers, Marianne Shablousky, Nancy Lynn Wilson.
NOTE: While donating to the library is not required for borrowing, I'd like to give those who have sponsored the collection to date priority as far as borrowing titles. It's only fair that since they paid for something to get copied, they should have a chance to see it first. But everyone is encouraged to contact Denise about borrowing titles - I'll leaveit in her more than capable hands to orchestrate things from this point on!

Stay tuned to future editions of this Newsletter for updates to the collection.
For a while I've wanted to put together an extended A-Team "soundtrack" tape, something I could pop in the walkman whenever I needed a good A-Team fix fast. So, here it is. I put this together from music and dialog snippets from episode tapes, the official soundtrack cd, cds when I had music that had been featured in the show, plus a few songs that just remind me of the Team for whatever reason. It's ~100 minutes long, so if you want a copy, I can dub it for you. It came out quite nicely (and yes, there several snippets of Dwight's singing, I rememebred that thread from a while back...!)

Anyway, if you want a copy, just send me a blank (100 min) audio tape, and return postage and envelope. Nicole Pellegrini, 2429 Locust Street #315, Philadelphia PA 19103. Postage should run about $1.00-1.25.

DWIGHT SCHULTZ IN RADIO PLAY: I found some more info on the net about the radio play that Dwight was apparently just involved in taping. Here's the full scoop for anyone that's interested. FYI, Dwight was also involved in the "War of the Worlds" production put together by I believe this same group; I don't know if he was in the other projects mentioned here (info would be appreciated).

Subject: Alien Voices Dramatic Reading at Creation's Grand Slam V
Star Trek Convention
From: [email protected] (karenr)
Date: 1997/04/07
Message-Id: <[email protected]>
Newsgroups: rec.arts.startrek.info

Saturday, March 22, 1997, 8:30 p.m., Pasadena Center

Alien Voices was formed in 1996 by Leonard Nimoy, John de Lancie, and Nat Segaloff to create multi-media works of sci-fi and fantasy. Nimoy and de Lancie cast their productions with Star Trek alumni. They perform live readings of classic works on radio, which are then taped for sale. These readings are scripted adaptations of literary works such as H.G. Wells' "The Time Machine" and Jules Verne's "Journey to the Center of the Earth." This production of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's "The Lost World" is the fourth production for the group. It was directed by Nimoy and written by Segaloff and de Lancie.

Although the group's previous recordings have been performed only in-studio, this performance was opened to convention-goers who actually got the chance to participate in the performance by providing background crowd noises to be spliced into the final tapes.

Before the reading began, de Lancie explained the concepts behind the troupe. He answered a few audience questions, revealing how Alien Voices and Creation came together on this project in just two months' time. He asked the audience to become engaged in the performance not only by its participation and presence, but by closing its eyes to help imagine the scenes the actors were performing. The program encouraged viewers to "Think of this performance as a live radio show or a favorite old B-movie. Watch how sound effects and dramatic readings are created. Have a ball and let your mind roam freely."

Creation advised the tape will be available at bookstores, but could not say when. Other Alien Voices productions are available as Audio Books published by Simon & Schuster.

Cast for "The Lost World":
Roxann Dawson
John de Lancie
Richard Doyle
Marnie Mosiman
Leonard Nimoy
Ethan Phillips
Dwight Schultz
Armin Shimerman

The show program noted: "In preparing this Alien Voices event, director Leonard Nimoy and writers Nat Segaloff and John de Lancie took their production clues from the original book. Like the author, this 'Lost World' stresses Doyle's themes of evolution and cultural imperialism. It also explores the subplot of ape-men and Amazon Indians fighting the battle for the Lost World. Additionally, we have added a twist that we feel reflects another kind of evolution: Professor Summerlee is now [a woman].

"After years of being associated with other people's projects we wanted to enter the next century at the helm of our own," said Nimoy. "Alien Voices gives us a chance to work with other artists who also want to branch out, yet still provide audiences with the quality they've come to expect from us."

Adds de Lancie, "I was raised on the classics - Jules Verne, H.G. Wells and others. Now we can bring these to even wider audiences by means of new technologies and old friends."
STEPHEN J. CANNEL NEWS: More pulled off the internet, looks like SJC has a new book due out soon, and will be making some public appearances:

Subject: Stephen J. Cannell book signing in Dayton, Ohio
From: Andrew Kaplan
Date: 1997/04/10
Message-Id: <[email protected]>
Newsgroups: alt.tv.wiseguy,alt.tv.rockford-files,alt.tv.silk-stalkings

Stephen J. Cannell, creator of Wiseguy, Rockford Files, Silk Stalkings, Renegade, The A-Team, and many other TV series, will be signing his new novel, _King Con_, at Books & Co. in Dayton, Ohio.

When: Tuesday, June 3, 1997, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. Line numbers will be given out starting at 6:30 p.m.

Where: Books & Co.
350 E. Stroop Rd.
Dayton, OH 45429
Phone: 937-298-6540 In Ohio or Indiana: 800-777-4881
Fax: 937-298-7895

Mr. Cannell's schedule permitting (gotta have that disclaimer, just in case), it is possible to order a copy of the book and have it signed and shipped. If you're interested or have any questions, feel free to call us or e-mail me.

As an aside, I've read the first 150 pages of the book, and it's great. Would have read more, but that's all the teaser excerpt the publisher sent out. Cannell has created another charming rogue in Beano X. Bates, a con artist working with New Jersey Prosecutor Victoria "Tricky Vicky" Hart to bring down mob boss Joe "The Dancer" Rica. It's like The Sting as rewritten by Quentin Tarantino if Tarantino was anywhere near as good as Stephen J. Cannel.
